BAKU | The Crescent | 666 feet | 43 floors

Quote:
The project of the Crescent developed along with the other project of the Full Moon by Korean Heerim.
The complex consist of 5 skyscrapers. The arch-like nature of Crescent Tower is revealed by the fact that the structure isn't a pure crescent on its inside relying on more regularly shaped columns to help provide it with support.

At 32 floors tall it will also be a luxury hotel, this time with 221 rooms. There will also be 128 serviced apartments in the building. Floor space will 128,140 square metres.

Behind it will stand a further four tall buildings, three of which will be residential with the tallest of the quartet being a 43 floor office building standing 203 metres tall.

Fantastic developments for Baku and Azerbaijan

Very nice and cool design. will probably become a great icon for Baku and the Caucasus region.

I hope they go with he rendering on the bottom where there is some breathing space between the very special crescent shaped building, and the more regular office towers. and i also like the feet height of the tallest tower very cool height choice.
