uhmmm because this project is purely funded by the company and private investors and has nothing to do with the government or the "oil money"

I don't think the disign is final. It's still a proposal, and if it's get build i'm sure disign will change.
If not it will become the most ugly megatall imo.
But we will see...

I just don't get it! There is certain stereotypes for buildings to be labeled beautiful and once they deviate from that (same case of this tower) they directly and blindly are called tacky, ugly ...

I LOVE this tower! I think it is different in a good way ... not a boring stick to the sky ... I like its shape and how grand it is. If I want to compare megatalls, I think Kingdom tower compared to this one is boring and a cheap version of Burj khalifa but got the height to compensate for that, this one is something totally different and unique and I think will turn out beautiful and will grow on all who hate it.

I also think this tower is amazing, but it is obviously concept. Hope when an architecture studio gets the job, that they stay true to the concept and don't do pyramidal.

Agree, i like the concept as well and i hope the final design will be similar. A 1000m+ without a pyramid shape would be absolutely great.

there was talk about 2016 some years ago, if I remember correctly. That is extremely unlikely though. I think if this tower will ever get a chance, we will see it when it they hire and architecture studio to provide a real design

I'm pretty sure the island where the main tower will be, isn't completed yet. Once the land is built, I would imagine they would need things to settle for a year or so before they start the pilings. My guess puts anything related to the start of the main tower, to be in 2017-18. But just like any other tower of this magnitude, we always run the risk of it being cancelled all together, which would be terrible news. Time will tell

I don't get this project at all. Who is going to work and live in it? Is Baku this short on housing and office space? Plus the layout looks terrible. Talk about congestion city. There is only one way in and out. Once finished, and if filled to capacity by people, traffic is going to be a nightmare.

Don't get me wrong. I like the ambition but the execution does not seem well planed, especially from what we know in city planning and the historic failure of these Corbusier style giant projects. All in the past have failed. Why would they think this will be a success? This is clearly just a vanity project of the ruling elite of Azerbaijan. A new city built purely for "style" and not function.

Why would it be any different then the Palm Jumeirah in Dubai? It seems to be pretty successful with the Atlantis resort at the very tip.

Sorry guys, but the whole project looks horrible. What a nightmare from a design point of view.

Personally, I would NEVER elect to live there. Unless they paid me millions and I wd not have to stay there too long.
