Azerbaijan to spend $700 million on construction of a skiing resort

Shahdagh Mountain Skiing Resort Project is estimated to spend $500 million to $700 million in Azerbaijan, said Abulfaz Garayev, Minister of Culture and Tourism
"Exploration activities are under way at the site. About 60 exploration wells have been drilled. The project is at the final stage of preparation and we are setting up management, promotion and advertising companies. We should now calculate the commercial expectations for 1 to 5 years. Foreign experts will also travel to Azerbaijan on October 10,” he added.

He added that public investment will only be limited to establishment of infrastructure and lifts while the contest winner investor will finance construction of hotels, catering, entertainment and other facilities. Government funds of $50 million will probably be allocated for the project. The construction of escalators will start on April-May 2008.

BAKU CITY STAR


2Design launches new project in Baku

Saturday, May 10, 2008

ISTANBUL – Hürriyet



Having completed several projects in Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Qatar, 2Design, one of Kempinski's top six architectural firms, launched a new project called “City Star” in Azerbaijani capital Baku.

The project, which includes a business center, an EXPO center, residential property and a shopping center, is to be constructed on an area of 250,000 square meters. Aral Group, a project development company operating in Baku, will complete the project's construction within three years.

Owned by the architects Murat Kader and Sema Eser Özsaruhan, 2Design initiated the project at the beginning of this year. With two 40-storey office towers, a four-storey shopping center and four residence blocks, two of them 28 storeys high and the other two 20 storeys, City Star will be one the highest buildings in Azerbaijan. The project, which is the first leg of a 6-hectare city plan, includes a swimming pool, a tennis court and an education and entertainment complex besides business offices and residences, while the second leg will consist of a hotel, offices and residential housing.

Thanks, I didn't think there would be so much space in that area to construct something that massive. I couldn't get the website to open to see the project in details.

No, that building has a little different design and will be a hotel. This under construction building is a residential on the street close to Nizami street (Torgovaya)
