People can't you read (and think )? This is just extended version of this original design. Do we know any architects name? Does that thing look like tested in wind tunnel? No? So you see. IF it ever is going to be build I can promise you it won't look anything like that.

And I personally have very little hope for it. I think developer is just using it to advertise the khazar islands. This is just to big to be serious. But if and when they will show real design then you can complain because we still haven't seen nothing real.

It is still looking like a 650 m building. How wide would it be to reach 1050m with this design? And it will have 7m storeys?

This is incredible. Looks amazing.... like from some sci-fi movie.

The size comparison with petronas towers and burj khalifa is just mindblowing :O

This would be the first world wonder of the 21st century.

A cheap 80s sci-fi movie, perhaps.

And Baku doesn't needs to stick to it's Flame-Towers, there are many skyscrapers under-construction, like SOCAR Tower.

So no, Flame Towers are not the only thing there is in Baku.
