wow. this is amazing. a tower of that size WITHOUT having a pyramid-like shape is just unbelievable. This will be as much of a challenge as Burj Khalifa was by its time. Even if the spire was 150m, and the top floor was at 900m, amazing structure to see rising, i hope this will not end like other similar insane projects, this is a world's tallest i would really love to see getting its title. Even if it is only a height improvement of like 50m to Kingdom Tower if both are build, due to it's shape it is architectural a huge improvement and something the world yet has not seen.

Wow, I like the redesing a lot! Maybe more than Kingdom tower, because like you said Zavatar - it´s not pyramid shape building - with this height - it´s amazing.
I hope this will be build.

i think the old design looked too large, but now the scale looks a lot better. It is extremely wide, but also the thickness fits to its overall design, i also like that the color seems darker

size comparison:



credit goes to the artists on SSP! Too bad that the current design of Kingdom Tower is not yet available for comparison.

This is indeed crazy building, and I agree this pipes design looks much better with these proportions and these colors (the original one I didn't like at all), BUT people you have to calm down. Hate to spoil the party, but answer yourself to these questions. Who have designed it? Any respected studio at all? Or just the same guys skilled with 3dmax who designed the original? I would love to see it rising so much more than kingdom tower but unless the developer will be at least ready to spend some money on real architect studio then it's just a kids play I'm afraid.

i didn't know it wasn't real architects designing it. i am also afraid due to the fact that this is on an island combined to the mass of this structure, that piling may end up in saying this is not possible in the location. But afterall the island isn't finished, yet, and there is still a lot of time for this project to take shape. I just love how this project finally has a render that shows its size. And i never thought that preparations would start before 2016 anyways.

I don't know it either. I would love to see such confirmation. But this is just too simple to say som or smith gill to propose. And besides what they did is actually just stretched the original design and change colors slightly. I don't think any serious architects would do that. But hey, lets see what more baku guys have to tell us about this new design.

considering tomorrow is eurovision in baku, they may also have rushed making another design, just to have something to show and give some publicity now that everyone is already looking at baku

Alright, we´ll see but the one thing I´m happy about that they won´t build the first design, if this will be built of course. It was really out of proportions.

Sorry for all those who like it, it is to much in my opinion.
We told many times that, project has nothing to do with government. The owner is Avesta Concern. It is owner's decision why to build it

Yeah, the current version looks pretty bad.
