That's depressing. What a f*cking crime to even propose such mediocrity.
They should seriously just wait until they have the money to build the masterpiece Russia Tower, instead of those pathetic things. If they do not build Russia Tower, they will regret it forever.

although I would very much like to see original Foster tower, I think this proposal is not too shabby either. these towers will be just fillers but at least they will add even more density to MIBC. Still, I weep inside after Russia Tower ;(

Right there with you

These towers are all right, but they look too much like OKO I think.

That other proposal is a nightmare. They look like every other commieblock in Hong Kong. Russia Tower's cancellation would be worse than Chicago Spire and India Tower. Even those buildings are still capable of being built, since their foundations are laid, like this one.
There should seriously be a protest about this.

Haha I can't believe someone did a render in sketch-up (as far as I remember the free version was the one that gave you rendering as faces with outlines the only option). Even by Russia standards this is extremely ugly. It would be better if they just slapped a reflective cladding and called it quits.

I don't think this is "extremely ugly". I don't think it's ugly at all, but it's just filler, and in no way a replacement for the Russia tower.

If that design was built, I wouldn't count it into the MIBC for the crime it would do replacing Russia Tower.

These new proposals look a little bit like the Keangnam Hanoi Landmark Tower in Vietnam... But the original design of the Russia Tower is one of the best designs ever!

I don't think it's so much a money issue: the original height was banned by the mayor and I guess the developers decided that there's no point in building Russia tower at 360 m.

We should ban the actual mayor.

In interviews I always feel how deeply he hates modern skyscrapers.
BTW Moscow has best conditions for megatalls.

Good ground , a strong growing economy and no natural disasters.
And the wind is also not so strong.

It is sad that they take that triangle plot. (Russia Tower has a triangle ground.)
Maybe they decide to build it in its original height behind the MCT but I think there are commieblocks.

What the hell... don't they have elections for mayors? Maybe they can elect someone else, because that's a horrible excuse. Half of the word's greatest skyscrapers would have never been built if the mayor of their cities did not like tall buildings.

Most of Moscow is commieblocks, we don't need another group on the site of one of the greatest skyscraper proposals in the history of mankind.

I think he meant current transport situation

Well, the problem is that he is not alone- a lot of people in Moscow (especially older ones) like to oppose skyscrapers because it "goes against moscow's historical soul" or some bullshit like that.



Also, Moscow is not "mostly commieblocks". The definition of the term itself is very obscure, often people label buildings as "commieblocks" when they are not. Besides, not all of these types of buildings are ugly.
