UNDER CONSTRUCTION
$100 Billion Khazar Islands Taking Shape

Azerbaijan is building a world-class city of artificial islands off the Caspian Sea

Along the Caspian Sea near Baku, Azerbaijan, crews have begun work on a $100 billion city of artificial islands dubbed the Khazar Islands.

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 (66 of them), pedestrian walkways, and innovative infrastructure. 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.

he 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.

Funding for the project is currently provided by Avesta, but the firm is hoping to attract foreign investors to cover nearly $30 billion of the construction work. The firm hopes to reach annual profitability margins of 10-15 percent on investments.

The Highest Skyscraper In the World Will Be This 3,444-Foot Turd
Quote:
Forget about the 1-kilometer-high Kingdom Tower. There will be a building higher than that: the Azerbaijan Tower. It will be fifty meters higher than the Kingdom Tower, have 189 floors and look like a shiny glass, steel and concrete monolith of crap.

The 1.050-kilometer (3,444.88-foot) Azerbaijan Tower will be built on the Khazar Islands, an artificial archipelago that is being constructed on the coast of the Caspian Sea off Garadag, southwest of Baku, the capital of the country. It's an architectural aberration, a nonsensical bunch of structures tied together into a tower with zero coherence, let alone taste. It looks like an oversized mall growing among other oversized malls. Vertical bad taste.

How about providing fresh water and sewer connection to all households in Baku first?

$2 billion Azerbaijan Tower to claim world's tallest building crown
Quote:


The Kingdom Tower, the world's largest tower planned hasn't even had it's foundation laid down yet and its already going to have to surrender its record to the new Azerbaijan Tower that will be built in Azerbaijan's capital Baku.

The future isn't in Dubai or Saudi Arabia — it's going to be on a city of 41 artificial islands called the Khazar Islands that'll cost $100 billion to construct and be home to the world's tallest building. The Azerbaijan Tower, as the Avesta Group of Companies is calling it, will reach 1050 meters into the sky.

So this new city's name is Khazar Islands? Or is it just the name of the project?

I don't know. Looks pretty cool, but i would prefer it close to Baku, improving it into a big city.

For now it is just the name of the project. There is a possibility that it will be given city status in the future. It is located 40 km-s away from city center. This project will improve suburbs of Baku and Sahil settlement.
