Very impressive complex.
It needs a Supertall as a flagship in the area to make it look even better.
Does the Metro/subway has direct access to the complex?

Are there any other planned towers for the complex once the currently U/C towers are built?

Grand City Moscow


And the unnamed twin complex that will replace Russia Tower.


There will also be a rather short building in front of the Imperia Tower.

Both towers are replacements for the better ones from the past. The one to replace the red M tower isn't better in my opinion and I'm sure we can agree that Russia Tower would have been the best of the whole cluster. Sad thing.

The problem with Grand City Moscow is that there aren't many other renders of it from other angles. So it's hard to judge how it will look like on the skyline and therefore I can't really justify any opinion yet.

Thanks

Are there any dates as to when will the construction start?

Grand City Moscow should be starting soon, if they haven't aready started, and the ex-Russia Tower site is in site prep. No idea about the shorter building, but the foundations are already there.

2014 could be a very good year indeed. Work on the Federation tower resumed, the taller Plaza tower is finally getting its cladding, Evolution and Eurasia are about to be finished, the Oko towers are rushing to the skies et cetera.

What about this tower?

On the render it seems to be located right next to the Moscow IBC.

That was the old design for the Russia Tower plot.

It's a shame they didn't select this project instead because it looks awesome...better than the twin towers.

I thought it looked awkward, to be honest.

The foundation for GCM is already in place because they had built it for Moscow City and Duma tower (the original project) which consisted of 4 300m towers interconnected with skybridges. Due to complexity of the foundation, they decided to use it instead of demolishing it. In my opinion, Grand City Moscow is a fine replacement for Duma. Sadly, Russia Tower does not and will never have a proper replacement because a) The plot has already been taken and b) No other tower (design-wise) even comes close at Foster's masterpiece. No Shanghai Tower, no 1WTC, nothing I will always look at MIBC and imagine the behemoth towering over the whole complex.

"For of all sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest are these: It might have been." Foster's work was truly one of a kind. I keep hoping that, if not in Moscow, it will still be built somewhere in the world."
