Azerbaijan Tower - The 1.050-kilometer (3,444.88-foot) Azerbaijan Tower will be built on the Khazar Islands, an artificial archipelago that is being constructed on the coast of the Caspian Sea off Garadag, southwest of Baku, the capital of the country.
The Khazar Islands will be a $100-billion city composed by 41 artificial islands. They will cover a 2,000-hectare surface. According to the plan, one million people will live in this new “city”. The developer—some Haji Ibrahim Nehramli, president of the Avesta Group of Companies—is already negotiating with the companies that built the Burj Khalifa. Construction of the tower will start in 2015. It will be finished around 2019, with a total price tag of $2 billion. - Gizmodo
