I've always liked this angle, and others such as it, although it doesn't really showcase the skyline itself too well.

Hotel Ukraine is on the left, near "Moscow City".

The tall building on the left (if you ask about the building far from "Moskow City", more close to Ostankino Tower) is Triumph Palace (It is sometimes called the 8th Tower because it is similar in appearance to the Seven Sisters skyscrapers built in Moscow by Stalin through the 1950s. Construction began in 2001.)

Eh? Now I'm really confused.

Could you please label the original panorama with important landmarks?

Stunning architecture by the way.

In that photo could someone point out where Russia Tower was supposed to go. Also, can anyone tell me what was on that land before the building boom?

Maybe a little more on the left... but aroud that area.

Before construction began, most of the buildings in the area were old factories and industrial complexes that have been closed or abandoned. The total cost of the project is estimated at $12 Billion

That's really cool. I hope it ends up looking like a Russian Shanghai one day.

Yes. Still, Moscow have it's own feeling, and uniqueness.

For me, no mather how tall they build the skyscrapers in Moskow City, the sisters represents Moscow.

This is the best night picture of Moscow I have seen, with 4 of them in one shoot.

I was bout to say - those buildings all look similar, but they're great!

That the Triumph Palace was finished in 2005 shows construction today isn't all about massive 400m glass skyscrapers

I found it interesting that it was built in 2005 as well. Gives me hope that College Park in Toronto may one day be completed as originally planned. It halted construction in 1929 only about 10% finished.
