Any news on the Pearl Hotel or the SOCAR Tower? I think the SOCAR Tower is going to be somewhere on Heydar Aliyev Prospect?

Yes, that is for sure, but when they will start it is unknown As for the Pearl Hotel, i am checking DIA's website all the time. If they start they will probably mention anything about it.

Mugham Center

A photo I took of the Mugham Center.

Is the new Carpet Museum being built beside the Mugham Center? Does anyone have a rendering of the new Carpet Museum?

The Carpet Museum is under construction and its location is on boulevard very close to the current Mugham Center. As for the renderings, i don't really have it, but have posted its from the picture with president visiting the construction site. The building looks like a big long carpet of gold colour. The picture is somewhere at Baku thread.

I found it. It is an interesting design. I guess work will start on this now the Mugham Center is finished.

Why they changed the design? I liked the first design very much. Also they construct a model house now. What kind of model house is this? See www.azkor.az

Yes, I much preferred the previous design. The new gold colour is not attractive.

I do not know what the Model House is going to be. It is located in the north-east corner of the plot (by the ABU petrol station), I think that is the bottom right corner of the plan below. There is no building on the plan in that location.

Yeah, that is a mystery for me too
I would like to aks you to make new pictures from the construction site of new Park Bulvar and Railway malls. I would like to see whether they have much progress or not. I think the global crisis and the low prices on oil affect the construction sector of Azerbaijan too.
At least as i have heard the governemt thinks about to freeze the big boulevard project and some other projects too.
As for the private sector, i really hope that DIA, Azkor and Aral Group will build their mega projects. As for the rest - Park Plaza, Heerims Moon and Crescent towers i have no belief anymore...

Also i really hope for the huge projects of recreation centers on the north coast of Caspian Sea by Crocus International, recreation center near Baku airport by Azersun and Ski resort in Qusari. It looks like those projects are still alive.

As for the sport complexes, they want to start the construction of 65 000 olympic stadium very soon. The location is empty area between Azizbeyov subway and Sabunchi circle. Let's see when they start.
Also Baku zoo will be rellocated. I suppose they will build a new zoo, not in the center of the city. Meanwhile, the fake of the old one is still unknown.

For the subway in Baku, Azadlyg avenue station is under construction and they have recently announced about 3 more stations to be build in the next years beginning this 2009. So looks like the construction of subway is going really good.

New plan for Baku metro



"Baki Metropoliteni" announced a new expanding plan for subway. According to the plan, Baku subway will get at least 1 new station each year untill 2020. So, already in 2009 they are starting to construct 3 more stations at the same time. So untill 2012 they will finish construction of: Azadlyg Avenue, Mikayil Mushvig, Cavad Khan and Avtovagzal (Bus Station) stations.
