This tower costs 2 bln. Azerbaijan's nominal GDP is 62 bln so 3.2 percent of GDP is enough.

GDP does not import. I just wanted to inform Donodöner that Azerbaijan's GDP is 62 bln.

Azerbaijan is an oil producing country, the state has more money than countries that has much larger GDP's. Maybe this is the fact you are avoiding. You could take a look at GDP's of Gulf states for instance, yet they are richer than most of countries in world.

yes me too, but what are the chances, once they realize they can get the title 'worlds tallest' with paying less money. first i want to see real designs for this tower and i do hope they resemble at least a bit of what the developers themselves should us what they imagine.

Trust me! It going to be true. The land, airport, some residents, formula 1 are under construction. However, they still keep secret the main tower render. I don' t know why or what will be happen if they publish it.

Do you actually know these things (about the tower), are you insider or close to one or are you just guessing?

The design needs to change, that's for sure. They can't keep it like this, it's very ugly.

Pfft. The gulf states are pseudo-rich, most of the wealth is going to waste. If Azerbaijan is like the gulf states---which wouldn't surprise me---then goodluck to them because they'll need it like we do.

It is just a placeholder, IMO. They will redesign the whole building.
