Please respect the hard work your fellow Kazakhstani forumers put into updating this thread! Stop hijacking this thread by posting a completely irrelevant to this discussion information or I'll have to report abuse to the moderator.

A news reportage about the new supertall was broadcasted on October 31 on a national news channel(in Russian):



Quote:
President opens “Abu-Dhabi Plaza” complex presentation. A skyscraper which is expected to be the highest building in Kazakhstan will be built in Astana with an official presentation of the project having taken place with the President of Kazakhstan, Nursultan Nazarbayev, attending the ceremony. Astana is to apply new architectural and construction standards with Arabian investors along with the English architect, Norman Foster to help the city. One of the British architect’s projects, the Palace of Peace and Accord, has already been implemented in Astana. This time, the famous Englishman has developed a project of skyscrapers with the highest one being over 380 metres tall.

Ahmed Al Sayegh, chairman, “ALDAR” Construction Company:
- Today, Kazakhstan is attracting large investments from all over the world. Realising the special significance of Astana for your Republic, we have taken the decision to participate in its construction. We hope that this project will strengthen the fraternal relations between Kazakhstan and the United Arab Emirates.

The first intention of the Arab investors to build the “Abu-Dhabi Plaza” was announced last year when Nursultan Nazarbayev was on a business trip to the United Arab Emirates. The construction is scheduled to begin next spring and finish by 2011. The multi-storey complex will consist of 450 flats, 250 and 150-place hotels, and a 5 thousand place car parking facility together with offices and trade sites, the total area of which will be at least 80 thousand square metres. Additionally, it is also planned to lay a railway lane linking the skyscraper and the city airport with high-speed electric local trains.
