They're part of the islands. But since the islands are not completed yet there are no towers too yet

Good to see signs of progress on the site. Even if it is not the actual tower under construction it still adds some kind of credibility to this tower.

This project is just like a vision at the moment, the next years will tell us what will really happen here. That's still a quite long time. So, i'm sceptical too if this will really get build at the moment.

The whole project is clearly not a vision as we can see from the pictures. The real question, though, is whether the tower will be over 1000m (because I have no doubt that eventually they will focus on the tower).

Yeah I agree, you'd think they would put a new paint job on that truck for such a massive project like this

What a Disgrace

Contract on 50 mln euro investment signed under Khazar Islands project

Azerbaijan is building a world-class city of artificial islands off the Caspian Sea. Under the Khazar Islands project, a contract was signed with three leading world companies on investing 50 mln Euros. The companies will finance the construction of 6 buildings or 200,000 sq m area, the president of the Avesta Group, Haji Ibrahim Nehramli said, AzerTac state news agency reported.
Work on the project to date has been funded by the Avesta Group itself. The firm hopes to reach annual profitability margins of 10-15 percent on investments.
The massive, 2,000 hectare project is the first of its kind in the region, and will consist of over 40 man-made islands connected with suspension bridges, pedestrian walkways, and innovative infrastructure.
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.
The floating metropolis will be home to more than one million people upon its projected completion in 2022, though many residents will be able to move in as soon as next year.
The completed city will boast more than 150 schools, numerous hospitals, and clusters of parks, shops, and cultural centers - not to mention the impressive, kilometer - high Azerbaijan Tower. A yet-to-be-constructed airport will provide international access to the area.
The islands will be dominated by high-rise buildings and resort-like accommodations, with miles of unspoiled beaches and warm, shallow waters. Special considerations were taken in design of the island`s structures to withstand up to a 9.0 magnitude quake in the region.
Construction of what will be the world`s tallest building, the Azerbaijan Tower, is expected to cost $2bn.
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.

Wow that is one WEIRD design, also the surrounding buildings look a bit like someone was on a drug when designing them, hihi.

Ok so if this WILL get built, there could be quite a lot of mega talls by 2020. Something I would have NOT seen possible if you asked me 10 years ago.
Maybe the future is coming sooner than I can dream after all, hehe.
