This looks like something you would build in the middle ages, as an execution device., or something..... but god it's so hideous.

I agree it's one of the most ugliest buildings ever imo.
The designer may be insane...
But when you look closely there are machines for soil testing in the background...anyway they should change the design.

I think the main reason why someone would build such a thing is to demonstrate power and prosperity.
But to be honest i don't now Gronzny's economical situation and the whole background stories.
What do you think?

It seems there's a little bit preperation work.
When i get the comments there right official sources claims the project is going further...but the reactions to this statements sounds like this is more propaganda and desinformation than anything else.
Perhaps someone here could translate the last pages there exactly.

They are making some tests to check underground waters, and stuff like that. It's really hard to build high rises in Grozny...
They are talking about that construction company that used to build Burj Khalifa now helping them to build Ahmat Tower... And that all funding comes from investors not from the government

Russian/English Speaker Here

Let me clarify things for you.

We have a long and rich history, much of which has inspired the constuction you are talking about. The tower is actually a Defense Tower used during the medieval period to protect the people. The reason we chose the Defense Tower is because Grozny has always and will always be a protect city. Grozny means fearsome. We like this symbol. This architecture.

About Grozny money problems...

It is not Grozny you should be looking at, it is the Chechen Republic. It is our state. Grozny is our capital. Just how you invest in your capital we do the same. Additionally, Chechnya does not have so many people. Rebuilding for us was easier with not having millions of people to worry for. There is less that 1.5million people in our state and less than 300k in Grozny.

The status of the tower is in building the foundation mode.

Any news on this project? Just curious if this gets built. It would be the most unusual skyscraper.

Dear god...I hate all of these megatall skyscraper that have no basis in reality. So many of these seem like vanity projects and are not at all market driven. Not to mention (IMHO) there's nothing worse than when a skyscraper completely does not fit in with the surrounding skyline. This region seems particularly egregious in this regard...

That's your opinion. Thank you. But nobody cared for him.
