Port Baku Tower 2 completes successfully

Construction has now finished on Port Baku Tower 2, in Baku, Azerbaijan. This elegant addition to the Port Baku skyline will offer a mix of uses including workplace, food and beverage and retail.

Chapman Taylor acted as lead architect on behalf of Pasha Construction for this impressive landmark, using BIM (Building Information Modelling) technology to deliver a fully coordinated design.

The 135,000m² Port Baku Tower 2 was conceived as a sculptural completion of the wider Port Baku development. The new mixed-use tower is an evolution of the original Port Baku Tower 1 design, completed in 2011, forming a “bookend” to the eastern aspect of Port Baku and creating a sense of enclosure in the central zone of the development.

The podium to the west of the tower mirrors the tower’s angled base and provides restaurants and shops to generate a vibrant circuit to draw people from the popular Fashion Avenue to the west.

Design Concept

The tower boasts sculptural, curving façades and inclined upper levels, while the angled foyer space at its base, with a 16m-high ceiling, creates an impressive entrance.
