Baku White City begins laying roads to its territory

The reconstruction of another central main road has been commenced in Baku.

Baku White City Project office reports that within the project Azeryolservis (ARS) of the Ministry of Transport started reconstruction of the road on Khagani Rustamov Street.

"The new six-lane road with width of 45 m with wide sidewalks and a total length of 1.7 km to be laid here will connect the two main arteries of the city of Baku - Babak Avenue and Nobel Avenue, and will extend to the new boulevard line," the Project office informed.

Rustamov Street frames from west the area of Green Hill district, the so-called "green island" - the capital’s modern center, where four apartment complexes in the French style is being constructed and construction of one of the iconic buildings of project Baku White City Office Building on a 2 hectare area is under way. The building will mean entry to the new district area from Nobel Avenue, being the gates of Baku White City. Landscaping of this street will facilitate comfortable living of first inhabitants of the district and provide them with easy access to separate objects inside and outside Baku White City.

Baku White City has made a full plan of Nobel Avenue reconstruction in Baku

Baku White City Project will connect the four main avenues of Baku - Heydar Aliyev, Babak, Nobel and Neftchilar.

The Project press service informs that BWC project proposed a scheme of the road network precisely in this direction.

"At present, the reconstruction of road on Khagani Rustamov Street is underway. The road will connect the Babak and Nobel avenues. Also, the project implies extension of Nobel Avenue sidewalk on one side of the road up to 20 m,” the press-service informs.

The Project spokesman also said that development of Fountain Square has been started on the territory. Easy access to the new Fountain Square will be provided by planned construction of a new metro station to continue the green line of the Baku Metro. The station will have exits to the Fountain Square, Nobel Avenue, Shopping Centre, and Nizami Park. A noticeable landmark will be an overground pedestrian bridge (Spine Bridge), which provides a direct link between Fountain Square and the upper levels of shopping & entertainment center Baku White City through Nobel Avenue.

Along with the drastic changes of the district, it will be preserved its historical identity. In particular, the project of a new building to decorate Nobel Avenue is being developed so that the two towers used for the distillation of oil would remain visible from the avenue as a symbol of the industrial past.

First, not the whole project of BWC will look like this but only a part of it called Green Village.

Second, I can't get your astonishment. This style is not something new and extraordinary for Baku. In fact, a very big part of downtown Baku consist of this type of buildings built in the end of 19th beginning of 20th century. The material they used and they still use is limestone which is a widely-spread construction material in Absheron peninsula where Baku is located. Moreover, Baku Mayoralty reconstruct many Soviet buildings in central area of Baku by using the same limestone so that they finally look close to this style which I also totally support.

Who cares about stone? This is reinforced concrete!
And of course is not new and extraordinary style, it seems to be in some XIXth century european block.

This architecture is not something exotic for Baku, that is what I meant! A good part of the city built in the end of 19th-beginning of 20th centuries looks similar to it.

I think the pseudo-French buildings will look fine but let's see how the first one will look like when finished.
