Huuuuuge. There is not enough steel left on the planet. If there is for this tower, its price will doubled when that's done. So, no more towers for the others. I know, I'm annoying

I guess you are kidding about the steel comment; just because the Tower is so crazy big. Just saying because it won't be a problem to produce all this steel.

No, because nobody knows when it'll start.

Looks like they can put three Burj towers in this building. It's so big might be just a fantasy proposal. We'll see!

First Phase of Azerbaijani Mega-Project to be Completed by May



The Avesta Company has announced that the first phase of the 3,000-hectare Khazar Islands project will be completed by May 28, the Azertag state news agency reports. The first phase consists of several beaches, restaurants, bridges and about 4 km of roads, as well as two 5-ha parks.

Khazar Islands is to be the site of the 1,050-meter Azerbaijan Tower, a proposal that is expected to cost more than $2 billion to construct and is estimated to be completed by 2025. If completed, the Azerbaijan Tower would exceed the height of the under-construction 1,000-km Kingdom Tower in Saudi Arabia, currently set to be the world’s tallest building by 2019.

Khazar Islands is to comprise 50 artificial islands containing 19 high-rise residential districts with more than 150 schools and numerous other support institutions. The mega-project will have its own airport, and is expected to cost more than $100 billion to complete.

I highly doubt the Tower will be completed in 2025. The land on which it will stand doesn't even exist until now.
