did i understand you correctly -baku park plaza is ongoing project İNSTEAD OF xi-park plaza and exactly where the latter was supposed to be built, and baku center project is INSTEAD OF flames? FLAMES aborted ? If so , it's even better - the latest project is better - i disliked flames design.
baku tower - what is the status of project - and the location ?
again about park plaza - is it really under construction - i did not note any activity there .

BAKU TOWER - This is a new project for me, because i have never even heard about it before. I hope it will be realized, so far i have no idea where is its proposed location.


FLAME TOWERS - The under construction three towers and mall called Flame Towers are constructed by Dia Holding http://www.diaholding.com Unfortunately, the renderings that we see on Dia's site are too old and not exactly the same in all the pictures. So i am waiting for somethn different that the towers in Dia's pictures.
As for those pictures of Baku Center think it is just an alternative to the project of Flame Towers and it is possible that the towers will be like in the picture of Baku Center rather than in the pics of Flame Towers.

PARK PLAZA BAKU - This name of Xi Park Plaza is official for that project. Some works for Park Plaza have been already done, but the works has been on hold since winter 2008. A few days ago i have seen some machines and workers on that territory. I suppose they are going torestart the work on eection of Park Plaza Baku. The picture of Park Plaza on the site of Tito is a little different than the project we used to know. But the conceptin is te same (2 towers and mall).

Some have been demolished. Some have been cleaned and painted. Some, like the ones in the pic below, have had the concrete exterior covered with a stone facade.

Sadarak Market

I went past this today. It is a massive covered space. I was told that it is a replacement for the Airport Market and when it is complete the Airport Market will be demolished. Does anyone know what is planned for the Airport Market site?
