It's simply gorgeous...

I'm very thrilled about what's going on in Astana, such a vibrant city with so many new things being built.

Congratulations!!!

LOL! I know it's all very premature at this point, but I was trying to prove exactly the same point over in KZ forum.

The complex planned right on a riverfront, so such placement indeed makes a lot of sense.

Impressive heights and amount of towers, but the designs are VERY uninspired if you ask me. They could've been in any city in the world, no identity of their own. Aren't there local architectural offices that could've come up with seven different, original towers?

Bazis is a local company. I believe they did the design part too.

Then they have no originality whatsoever. With such a unique project, you would've expected more.

Well, would you like me to agree with you? I absolutely could, although Bazis has done projects internationally, in Kiev, Riga, Toronto, and it never disappointed. But we will just have to see how it goes later in the year, because judging by their previous experience, I'm sure they will pull it off!
