VIDEO: Azerbaijan's 1,050m supertall tower

Avesta's Azerbaijan Tower and Khazar Island development promo video

A developer in Azerbaijan has unveiled plans to build the world’s tallest building, eclipsing Dubai’s 828m-tall Burj Khalifa by a full 27%.

Property company Avesta said its 1,050m superscraper, tentatively named the Azerbaijan Tower, would form part of a chain of 41 artificial islands in the Caspian Sea, with construction scheduled to start in late 2013.

The tower would also surpass the Prince Alwaleed-backed Kingdom Tower, the 1,000m+ building set to begin construction in Jeddah in the first quarter of this year – though the final height of the Saudi tower has not yet been publicised.
