Part of their Bahria Enclave development in the capital, the proposed tower is 87 stories tall includes many amenities such as a 5 star hotel, luxury apartments, shopping mall, serviced cooperate offices, 360 degree view restaurant and a club near the top of the tower.

Same reaction here. People here say it's shameless ripoff. But it'd be nice to see a 300m+ tall tower in this city for a change.

Let's hope this ripoff design doesn't happen. Design a unique iconic supertall for the city.

Make it all-gold and give it a 90 degree twist and it's just awful enough for Baku.

I'm probably the only person who loves these rip-off projects. Love modernized stuff like that. falconcity of wonders made me really excited years ago, but slowly disappeared, great to see another real sized glass eiffel tower getting a chance.

Cool Project. I like it.

It is hypocritical to revolt, because most buildings at the world are the same or similar to each other.

Freedom for owners.

There can be no copyright on ideas, because the same or similar ideas also can occur regardless of location, time and human.

State copyright law is not working. It would be private.

Let's hope this just remains a proposal. And they build a better looking super tall instead!
