Flame Towers and skyline of Baku, Azerbaijan

The three skyscrapers known collectively as the Flame Towers dominate the skyline of Baku, Azerbaijan. And this city on the Caspian Sea coast embraces the towers’ ultra-modern presence in the city’s evolving landscape. The tallest of the three towers is 39 stories, making it easy to see the nighttime light show of the Flame Towers from the outer reaches of the city. After sunset, roughly 10,000 LED lights spark up, often displaying shimmering waves of gold and red, to drive home the name of the towers.


Flame Towers is the tallest skyscraper in Baku, Azerbaijan with a height of 190 m. The buildings consist of apartments, a hotel and office blocks. The estimated cost of Flame Towers is around US$350 million. Construction began in 2007, with completion in 2012. HOK was the architect for the project, DIA Holdings served as the design-build contractor, and Hill International provided project management.
Opened: 2013
