Baku has so many amazingly designed buildings, this one however is not one of them. but maybe it turns out better in the end.

I'm hopeful that this rendering is only intention to build structure of such high, it's just setting the bar.

That's ridiculously horribly terrible. Say goodbye to the Baku skyline unless someone has the sense to shut this down!

I am wondering what kind of architect actually looked at this and thought it was beautiful

It's really campy, but I like it for that, it's like the headquarters of a Roger Moore-era James Bond supervillain.

There are host of unbuilt skyscrapers with great and simple design in Baku! But this one, to be more charitably, need to be corrected. I hope that Powers of Baku will interfere in this situation as H. Aliev avenue is a place of such masterpiece projects as SOCAR Tower, Azersu Tower, CBA Tower and others. This is unacceptable to allow single building spoil whole skyline.

I'm reserving my judgement until it is an actual tower and not just a render. It has potential to be terrible though

Holy focks. This is one of those buildings that's one rich guys "monument" to build, but gets blocked way before construction.

Yes, it looks absolutely hideous, but I'am very intrigued to see how that construction on base looks like.
It can be horrible looking building that got that metallic construction that itself looks mesmerizing with money poured to the building, or it can be horrible looking and also look cheap.

Every time I see a rendering of this building it looks goofier and goofier. It's the only building in Baku that I have anything bad to say.
