Glad they didn't go with the blue glass for Mercury Tower. The copper really compliments and accentuates this highly angular form.

It's a gas-fed cogeneration plant. Since Moscow, like other FSU cities, mostly uses district heating, placing cogeneration plants close to heating consumers is necessary.

There are no coal plant in Moscow, all of them are gas-fed cogeneration plants (CHP) with possibility to use black oil in case of interruptions in gas delivery. They are very effective, but they should be located near hot water and heat consumers because water pipes are quite expensive (especially in Russian climate, where they should be routed very deeply) and they have big losses of heat. Usually they are located around the city (near Moscow ring road) since they take much place and produce some pollution, but there are few in the city to serve central districts of it.

Initially the investor should have chosen a project from several variants not more than 230m, but they disliked the height limit, now the limit for the new contest is 360m.

I dislike the new limit for Russia Tower plot as well! They better come back to the original landmark scheme or else!

360 meters isn't that bad
There is probably like a 1/3 chance it will be a supertall.

Yes, it is and this is an abandoned village Terekhovo within Moscow borders.
