What is the time frame for this actually awesome development? In Vienna something of that size would take at least 20 years.

This will be a real gem and actually even worth for tourists to have a look at I guess. I hope the use will be as mixed as it looks like in the visualisations. The only small backdraw IMO is that the mall looks like an island with no grand entry for pedestrians. But at least they countered that by effectively establishing a short and efficient pedestrian connection between the mall and the rest of the centre of the new district.

Well yeah, but nobody says that when the UK builds stuff like in the Canary Wharf or the Parisian La Defense. Nobody would say that it lacks London or Paris style and looks too American.

Every modern city in the world has its modern areas, Baku should also have its own.
