MOSCOW INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS CENTRE
The City of Capitals complex, symbolizing Moscow and St.Petersburg, is located on plot 9. The tower Moscow has become the first super tall skyscraper in Europe.
More than half of the top floors are taken up to an entertainment complex, office suites, and large apartments. The Сity of Capitals consists of two towers - the 73-floor "Moscow Tower" and the 62-floor "St.-Petersburg Tower", reaching heights of 306 and 255 meters, respectively. Floors 17 and 18 of both towers are offices. The entire complex sits on a main lobby consisting of 6 underground floors and 4 aboveground floors of public space. The upper floors of the base structure will contain shops, a fitness center, presentation halls, and restaurants[7].
To create the concept for the offices in the City of Capitals, other business complexes and business centers from other parts of the world were studied.
The spatial structure of the complex with steps of columns 9 meters high enables the organization of offices with open layouts from 500 up to 3,500 square meters. An entrance to the office section of the complex is situated near a quay, leading from underground parking to retail galleries.
