WOW. What can I say? So much information to process. This is a HUGE project. It includes some interesting urban concepts, such as the shapes of the blocks around a central space. But it also has several issues. The avenues are far too wide and far too many, the open air parking space is totally unnecessary, since (having so little budget restrictions) they could have opted for underground parking space instead.
Regarding the architecture, personally, I loath this kind of kitschy faux European style which, unfortunately, is present all over the world (including the city where I live). For those saying it's just a small part of the project: it's not. Having looked at the renders, I can say it's a huge part of the project, and one of the biggest developments in this style in the world.
It's a pity, because the buildings with modern authentic designs are quite attractive, and the modern area near the coast looks especially good, with the terraced modern buildings.
But that is just my opinion, I guess that if people there like that kitschy style, and they are happy about it, if they will enjoy the spaces and the buildings, they are in their right to build whatsoever they want. Only that if I ever happen to visit Azerbaijan, I'm going to do my best to stay clear of that "French Quarter", staying in the nice modern part instead
