Azerbaijan Tower - World's Tallest | 1050 M | 189 Floors

Azerbaijan Tower could soon become the world's tallest man-made structure with height reaching over 1050 meter. Burj Khalifa, the current tallest building in the world located in Dubai may get pushed to #2 position in 2018 once the new tower is constructed. Note that The Azerbaijan Tower will definitely make Burj Khalifa look dwarf. In case you're interested in comparing the heights, Burj Khalifa stands ~830 m high while the proposed Azerbaijan Tower will be 1050 meter tall! Well, the proposed tower is even going to be taller than the proposed Kingdom Tower by over 50m.

The building is expected to be the part of township planned at Caspian Sea southwest of the Azerbaijan capital, Bakou. Once completed the tower will boast 189 floors. It will be built by Avesta Consern as part of the Khazar Islands development. The tower itself is estimated to cost $2 billion while the complete township development (along with Formula One Racing Track) is expected to cost over $100 billion.

Check out following video that takes you through the proposed town:-

but we cannot be sure of that... 😀 because kingdom tower has not released the total height of construction. (even burj khalifa hadn't released the total height till the construction was complete. and the final height was way over the initial one that was expected.) all that they've said is that it'll be over a km tall 😀 it may extend beyond this.

I like the look of this structure. Especially in image number 3. They could use it in different ways in action films. 😎
