No shit. There will be 7 more towers just on this part of a photo. 3 of them will rise this year (336, 215 and 248 meters). Plus FT and MC will be finished. Frankfurt got nothing on Moscow.

if only half of them will be as ugly as that copper-colored one, moscow will surely be "unique".

Fashion? Then if it's not white or blue it's ugly for you? Pathetic.

Even that randomly chosen part of Moscow skyline?
Dudes, with all given respect, those 5 or 6 towers in Moscow against the massive skyline of Frankfurt? The tallest towers of Moscow are some 40-50m taller than the tallest ones of Frankfurt and you honestly can't compare the number of quality buildings, do you? However, of course I accept any opinion, including the most biased ones

You clearly have no idea what you're talking about. Let me help you. MIBC towers. Name and height in meters.
City of Capitals Moscow (301) completed
City of Capitals St. Petersburg (257) completed
City of Capitals podium (76) completed
North Tower (132) completed
Tower 2000 (104) completed
Naberezhnaya tower A (85) completed
Naberezhnaya tower B (127) completed
Naberezhnaya tower C (268) completed
Imperia Tower (239) U/C
Federation tower West (242) completed
Federation tower East (360) U/C
Federation tower spire (448) U/C
Mercury City tower (327) U/C
Eurasia (309) U/C
Evolution (250) U/C
MCTT (167) U/C
16 IBC A (336) U/C
16 IBC B (215) U/C
16 IBC C (79) U/C
Plaza A (168) On hold
Plaza B (193) On hold

Plus plot 15 and 17/18 which we haven't seen new projects yet. I think that's more than 5-6 towers. Oh, and show me a pic of Frankfurt in -30C.

Okay, I exaggerated a bit. There are 9 completed towers. But look at the pic, there are not more than six (significant) towers visible (at least on first sight). The "Moscow City" cluster looks like an artificial megalomanic "skyscraper mountain" within a sea of midrise commieblocks imho (and yes, I know how many tall buildings Moscow has spread across the city..).

why do you want to see a Frankfurt pic in -30C?

seven sisters+triumph palace+mosfilm tower.. etc = ugly commieblocks
messeturm+commerzbank+rest of them = holy skyscrapers of europe
extracting ugly towers? alright but there is a problem. there is nothing left in frankfurt sorry dude, frankfurt is kinda demoded with that blue/white coloured boxy and monotonous buildings made ​​of glass or stone

And I'd say there are only about 13 skyscrapers on that Frankfurt pic. So your point? Moscow is a much larger and taller city on average, so MIBC doesn't stand out that much, yet.
