250 floors???

Will that really be possible to be built? ... I can't imagine how difficult it is to live/work on such height!!!! that is insane...

but yet again, that means that soon Burj Dubai or Khalifa no longer will hold the title. Right?

it's possible to build...no doubt.

But Burj Khalifa still won't loose it's title for many years. If Azerbaijan tower really starts in 2016 i expect it to reach 830m not before 2020.

Azerbaijan will start rising as soon as 2nd stage starts and they plan to finish it in about 3 years

This would have been awesome if this would become true one day but I strongly doubt it will ever be reality

this is a long term proposal, it will take a lot more time for actual realistic renders and even more to have this thing in the preparation state if ever.
