Trump Hotel to develop a Baku hotel neighboring the Zaha Hadid-designed center

From 2015, Heydar Aliyev Center, the Zaha Hadid-designed cultural institution in Baku (Azerbaijan), will have a new luxurious neighbor – Trump International Hotel & Tower Baku.

“When we open in 2015, visitors and residents will experience a luxurious property unlike anything else in Baku — it will be among the finest in the world,” said Donald J. Trump, chairman and president of The Trump Organization, one of the most renowned luxury developer in the world.

The 33-floor landmark with architecture inspired by the Caspian Sea will be located on Hasan Aliyev Street in the Nasimi District of Baku, Azerbaijan, and feature 72 ultra- luxury residences and 189 hotel rooms.

Soaring 33 stories above the Caspian Sea, Trump Baku is located on 20,000 square meters (215,278 square feet) of land and surrounded by lush and expansive gardens, fountains and promenades. Located at a major crossroad, Trump Baku anchors the Eastern Gateway into the center of the city and nearby the acclaimed Heydar Aliyev Center.

The exterior facade has a distinctive silhouette resembling the mast of a sail in high seas and comprised of metallic bronze panels, glass openings, and private terraces. The design of the tower is being spearheaded by Mixity Design, headquartered in London, UK, with the construction being carried out by Garant Holding. Neutral grey and deep brown tones and soft textures are punctuated with high notes of purple, blues and black.

The 72 residential units will be available on a long-term lease basis and feature expansive layouts, ranging in size from 84 to 890 square meters (904 to 9,579 square feet).

The commercial areas of the building will serve both residents and hotel guests. Luxury amenities will include a 1,409 square-meter (15,166 square-foot) spa with indoor swimming pools, 400 square-meter (4,305 square-foot) fitness center, 1,950 square-meter (20,990 square-foot) business center, 147 square meters (1,582 square feet) of exclusive retail and a signature restaurant with a globally acclaimed restaurateur, announced the luxury developer.

As with all Trump properties, hotel guests will have access to a range of services and signature programs, including Trump Attaché, Trump Card, a privileges program with member benefits and fitness and nutrition amenities within Trump Wellness.
