Shard is not cleaned yet, but i like it though, and love cladding.....
Even though MCT is not clean, i still not like it, its like a building from futuristic comic books from 60s, at least reminds me of it....
Also, I dont like window frames, they're too bold. As that cladding
At least, if interiors will be good and well-designed, i will change my opinion

I like when glass is transparent, but i dont like a tower, and unfortunately, there will be no spire((
Anyways, it has its own identity

I think both cities, which is Moscow and London, has their own beauty, charm and its own league, and its a little bit unreasonable to compare between both of them in terms of architecture or anything in general, cause they both have their own originality, and its a bit senseless to compare the Mercury City Tower with The Shard, i find them both are in their league of their own in terms of architecture, design, and height. To me the Mercury City Tower is meant to be designed and clad in that way to go along with the surrounding of the IBC, which i find it very suitable, striking and it goes along with the contrast of its surrounding skyscrapers while The Shard is designed to be iconic and meant to be standout structure that is visible throughout London.

btw, this is main disadvantage of Moscow IBC

Gap between buildings, anyways, IBC will look much better




Also liked Moscow IBC in the future, oh, now MCT is waaay better than today

Why??
There will be a huge mall in between, and even if it was crammed with buildings the towers surrounding the scraper would block out the view.
So think again.

This has clearly not worked.
Canary Wharf has began in late 1980's. Moscow IBC has began in middle 2000's.

Now get back to middle 1990's to check what was Canary Wharf back then.

4 metro stations, 3 highways. also 2 rail stations, though railway is not used much for passenger service.

2 metro stations on FL line (4) already opened.
2 more has been built in structure.
1 should be opened in 2 years on KSL line (9). phase one is currently under construction.
1 more should open in 3-4 years on one of new TPK lines. awaiting documentation.

there are 2 highways at IBC - Kutuzovky prospect and Third Transport Ring. connection to new Krasnopresnensky prospect highway should open next year. there is also a plan for northern Kutuzovsky prospect.

Not sure what your point is?
I wasn't replying to you. I was replying to the poster who lumped London and Frankfurt in with NYC during a "league" discussion on a skyscraper forum. Sorry, but that's just ridiculous. The fact you only have 3 examples, and that not even all of those are supertalls, proves my point.

On the other hand, yeah....
So, actually, Afimall works, and there's awesome view to those skyscrapers, because of the big dome.....

It's connected with major buildings of the IBC.....

This is a new proposition instead of the Russia Tower.
This is the latest render, but I hope not the last one.
