Azerbaijan Tower to cost $2bn

Construction of what will be the world's tallest building, the Azerbaijan Tower, is expected to cost $2bn.
The 1,050 metre tower with 189 floors is to be built on one of a chain of artificial islands in the Caspian.
The company behind the Azerbaijan Tower and the Khazar Islands project, the Avesta Group, told Gun.Az of the projected $2bn cost of the tower.
Work on the project to date has been funded by the Avesta Group itself. Now talks are under way with investors, including foreign companies.
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 president of the Avesta Group, Haji Ibrahim Nehramli, told APA at the end of January that construction of the Khazar Islands as a whole would cost $100 billion.
The first phase of the Khazar 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.

Baku shouldn't go Dubai style and then end up being bailed out. Not that a km tall tower in Baku wouldn't be cool, but it's just that they should think about sustainability and developing the city proper itself.

this 1km tower is part of new city being built about 40km away from Baku
and btw Baku isn't going Dubai style this 1km tower is just to make this project famous world wide and attract tourists nothing more
in Baku there is no building being built or completed taller than 210m

That's even worse, why build a new city with such massive buildings in a country of 9 million?

Talk about wasting money, but if they pull it off somehow I'm sure it will be cool, but just remain empty, like the buildings in Dubai and to a lesser extent China

they hope it will, you can't deny it is quite gambling, noone knows if so many tourists will come there. But i really hope they can pull this monster off, it would be amazing to finally see a possible world's tallest rise when another world's tallest isn't even completed
