I like the top of this tower. Baku has really embraced innovative architecture in a way that gives it a very futuristic look. Many people in North America haven't heard of Baku, but with buildings like this, that will surely change before too long.

It's nice to see a building that is turning out as shown in its rendering. So many buildings don't, usually because of cheaping-out on the cladding.

One of the many things I like about this building is that every time I see a picture of it there is always visible progress. Some building seem to really slow down toward the top, but SOCAR just seems to keep going.

Delay

Socar Tower.
Starting Date : 01.07.2010
Completion Date: 01.03.2013
Today : 14.04.2014 (Almost 14 months delay)

What is the reason of this big delay?

There was a problem with groundwater. Construction of main tower started in 2012.
