By 2020? Sounds impossible. Especially if they plan to start in 2016.

I love the new 'thinner' design. I hate the earlier design because it's too huge and ugly

sounds rather unlikely indeed. if they start prep work for Azerbaijan Tower now, it may work out, but seems unlikely still. 10 more supertalls sounds great as well, but also a bit too crazy to be true, but i think we can only wait and see. would be amazing if they could do that, but i surely am doubtful as of now.

Why, in the last set of pictures, I can hardly see a worker on site?

Where are all they?

All I cas see is the structures rising by itself...

This is a great project, and hopefully the final and beautiful design of the Azerbaijan Tower is published soon!

But those date palms!

But those date palms!

The date palms are in very sorry state, there are even dead palm trees! The palm trees were obviously planted for aesthetic reasons, but the opposite outcome is the case in the photos!

It may sound trivial for this huge project and topic, but it does matter, because planting species which cannot adapt to the local climate or are not properly looked after, is wasting money.

Azerbaijani winters, also at the coast, are just too cold for this species, and to many species of palm trees in general. If they really must plant palm trees, why don't they plant cold resistant species of palm trees, which they so successfully did in Baku?

Now that's something I've been waiting to read here for a long time. Can you tell us anything more about the tower? Are you involved in the project or a person you know maybe is? Do you know the architect of the tower or when you expect the design to be showed to the public.

I will remain skeptical until I see the proper design but posts like that even from completely new members casts some light on the future of this project.

I actually quite like the the current one
but like I thought the height of the tower in the render is between 800-900m
and there were rumors that they found an investor for the tower
so that might of caused the change
otherwise they would of just extended it again
