This (more or less) project was still implemented by the same architect in 1970s in a modernized way as the House of Soviets. Now it's the State Government building.

How does the last design work? Was it intended to be built partly on top of the houses next to it? And what are those other drawings in your link?

And btw: Do you know if the Singer company ever made any sketches for the skyscraper they had initially intended to build where the Singer House in Saint Petersburg is today?

1. It's a project of the monument which was planned to be erected in the Kremlin of Kostroma. They managed to build a plinth before the Revolution.
2. All these projects are taken from the album "Motives of the Russian Wooden Architecture": download link
3. Sorry, but I didn't know about it.

I think you added another project after I wrote my post or I just did not see it. I meant the second to last project, i.e. the mansion of the princess E. Shakhovskaya-Glebova-Streshneva. The elevation seems to suggest that the sides would be built on top of something that already is there as it seems to show the outlines of two roof lines.

Are these unbuilt too?

Shame. Apparently they had planned to build a skyscraper similar to the Singer building in New York (according to wikipedia), but I have never managed to find any documention of these plans other than a sentence at wikipedia. I don't really know what to search for as I do not speak Russian, but I don't know if the plans/visions were ever sketched out anyway.

It is the first project of the state Historical museum on Red square:


It's the winning design of the museum:

It's just a sketch.
By the way, there is a mansion with a similar dome in Moscow:

It was built in the pseudo-gothic style in 1780 by M.Kazakov.

Perhaps Roman_P (or other russian-speaking members) will be able to help us.

As far as I know there is no solid evidence that Singer company had planned to build a skyscraper in Petersburg. Or even if they had there are no sketches left. Most likely it was just a vague idea.
By the way, here is a first project for the current building (by the same architect, Pavel Suzor):

Thanks.

I think the design of the current building is vastly better than that drawing. Seems like St Petersburg was lucky there.

This could have been a pretty nice design for a station too with some modifications.
