Azerbaijan to build a city of the future
December 27, 2011 ANS PRESS Azerbaijan will soon again surprised the world with its next ambitious project. Constructed on the sea "Caspian Island" ("Xəzər adaları") does not give in Hawaii. ANS TV channel provided exclusive photos of the magnificent city, which is planned to erect on artificial islands. Thus, after 25 years we are lucky to see this gem on the waves of the Caspian Sea. But some of it we can see already in 2016-th year ... The project is called "Xazar Island" or "Caspian islands," he has no analogue in the world. Because for the construction of the city, which will stretch into the sea at 8 km, an artificial island. The city is located on these islands. Garadagh district from here continuously delivered to the ground. Construction work is currently underway on a 4-kilometer stretch that stretches into the sea from the coastline. It has already begun construction of a number of restaurants and homes. Part of the road leading into the city, already covered with asphalt. The city of the future of a million people will be built in 25 years. 2016 will be put into operation 10% of the city, which means that the first stage in this part is populated by 100 thousand people. It should be noted that the cost of living in a new city is not to be small. One square meter of housing here will cost a minimum of 3,500 manat. Those who wish to purchase housing here will benefit from the mortgage without registration of the banks. The project's author, Ibrahim Ibragimov in an interview with ANS TV has expressed confidence that the enormity of "Caspian islands" will cause a stir around the world. "When I was struck by this idea, I have not found the paper to make the first an outline of the drawing, had by buying a shirt, pull out the cardboard packing paper on which I drew the original version. then took a sketch architects. 7 days of the project turned out magnificent. The project displays a carpet pattern, "- said Ibragimov. 's tallest hotel in the world of the 185 floors will be located here. According to project leader Ibrahim Ibragimov, the building of 185 floors above to Dubai "Burj Dubai". "I spoke with a company-builder" Burj Dubai ". With difficulty, but persuaded the construction of the building above "Burj Dubai" on 50 meters. " The project manager said that the city built on water, cover the area of 30 thousand square meters. 20 thousand sq.m. provided for housing. 10 sq m. take commercial properties, offices, stadiums, entertainment venues, venue for the competition "Formula 1", "Formula 2". Residential buildings are no higher than 25-storeys, but differ in height from the hotel. For example, the world's highest hotel floors of the 185 will be located here. Although the project was prepared two years, the construction work carried out within 10 months. One of the interesting things is that the city on all sides will be surrounded by a boulevard. And the longest avenue in the town will be the "Caspian island." The length of the boulevard will reach 150 kilometers. Another interesting point is the lack of traffic lights on the streets. Because of the road there will be no overlap. "Roads will be 4 lanes. The bridge also will run a 5-lane road. We have provided it to not have to expand the road in case of growth Garadagh region" - said Ibragimov. Project Manager said that the city has already done a line of drinking water. To obtain fresh water from seawater, establish special facilities. Held a special control over conduct of the collector system, in order to ensure that in future not to carry out excavation work. Electricity are projected to receive from the sun. On the bank will build power plant with capacity of 200 megawatts. All objects in the city will be provided with constant hot water. The authors believe that this fabulous city of the future to attract tourists from all over the world. http://news.day.az/economy/306749.html

Developer plans world's tallest building for Baku suburb

A local investor is hoping to build a 185-storey building in Sahil (formerly Primorsk) in the southwestern suburbs of Baku.

The State Committee for Construction and Architecture has not yet received an offical application from the developer, the committee's deputy chairman, Dovlatkhan Dovlatkhanov, told Fineko.

He said that local investor Haji Ibrahim had started preliminary work on the project.

"As far as we know, the investor has already hired an architect, who has designed the initial sketch of the project which encompasses an offshore area in addition to the coastal zone and envisages the construction of artificial islands," Dovletkhanov said.

"The construction of a 185-floor building in the Baku settlement of Sahil is technically feasible. More detailed information will be provided after the fully developed project has been reviewed by specialists of the State Committee and the Ministry for Emergency Situations's evaluation committee," Dovletkhanov said.

A source in the Emergencies Ministry confirmed to Fineko that the project would be technically possible, but questioned whether it was needed at all.

Azerbaijan has experience of creating artificial land mass. Back in 1925 Lenin’s Cove, as it was then known, in Bibi Heybat was filled in.

If Haji Ibrahim's project sees the light of day, the Baku (Sahil) skyscraper will be taller than the world's tallest building - the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.

One kilometre-high building planned for Azerbaijan

An Azerbaijani businessman has announced plans to build the world's highest building on an artificial island in the Caspian.

Haji Ibrahim Nehramli, president of the Avesta Group of Companies, says the new building will be a whopping 1,050 m high with 189 floors.

The Azerbaijan Tower will be 200 m higher than the world's current tallest building - Burj Khalifa, and 50 m higher than the Kingdom Tower to be built in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
The Avesta management originally planned to build a 560-m tower, but revised their plans, APA reported.

Avesta says it has already held talks with the companies that built Burj Khalifa.
The Khazar Islands are a development of artificial islands to be constructed in the Caspian Sea off Garadag, southwest of Baku.

The Avesta Group told Gun.Az that the first phase of the islands project will include residential and social facilities and restaurants and will be completed in 2016.

The Azerbaijan Tower will be built as part of the second phase. Construction is expected to begin in 2016 and finish in 2018-19.

Well, it looks ok, I'm sure it will look better when they get some better renders available.

But what I wonder is... if there really is a need for such a big luxury residental project in Baku? I mean even if its being financed by a private company, how are they going to feed those vast areas with enough opportunities for other contractors? Noone wants to live in a ghost town.
