Yep it was completely unexpected. Nah but really, it's because it was so wildly unrealistic that made me hope someone would actually pull it off.

Hold on a minute, I haven't actually seen the source saying the building was cancelled. Doing a Google search, I was unable to find anything regarding it being cancelled (Unless I just didn't look enough). I would be happy if somebody provided the source for this information.

But I like to see this project to be revived, why can other developers help to complete the rest of it. -_-

I remember last time that I've been to Baku, I asked a few people about it and they said that It wasn't meant to build at the first place

I don't think this project is cancelled, according to this article:
http://www.nytimes.com/2013/02/10/ma...be-famous.html

But even then, I'm not exactly for this project.
Azerbaijan has a per-capita GDP so low, it's not even 1/5 of the capita of the UAE, making me wonder how the heck this Khazar Islands project will be financed. Considering it's low economy, the country chooses to build this, signalling availability only for the rich and privileged. Seriously, they could instead invest in the future of the whole country, by maybe funding a network of world-class universities (which Azerbaijan isnt' even close to having) in a country that borders no ocean and produces no product that the rest of the world wants besides oil. But then again, their government corruption and big money in politics screw up the process.

We'll see what happens here . . .

DingDongSenior I totally agree with you, but the article seems to be old enough, it's of 2013's February date. So I hope this vapid project is to never be realized

Agreed

Yeah, that article is ancient. I actually to post this different link: http://cfi.co/asia-pacific/2017/02/l...irst-daughter/

Hopefully, development at Baku continues. Just not the unreasonable Khazar Islands project! I am curious to see Azerbaijan can do with Baku and the country.
