I'm an unbelievable fan of Manchester United and an unbelievable hater of Chelsea FC.

But I don't understand what you mean when you say 'Thank god there are no Manchester United fans looking on this thread'

But doesn't matter, sorry for football talk.

Crunch cripples Europe's tallest tower

* Story Highlights
* Work stops on building Europe's tallest tower, Russian agency reports
* Developer says credit crisis means they can't pay for it or find tenants for it
* Russia Tower in Moscow was to be 600 meters high; work started in 2007

MOSCOW, Russia (AP) -- Construction work has stopped on Europe's tallest building after developers said their lofty ambitions had been hit by the global financial crisis, a Russian news agency reported Friday.

The credit crisis meant there was no possibility of paying for the Norman Foster-designed 600-meter (1,968-foot) Russia Tower and no demand from tenants to fill it, Shalva Chigirinsky, head of developer Russian Land, was quoted as saying.

The tower in Moscow's new business district was slated to be Europe's largest building when work started in 2007, when Russian construction was booming. The partially-built tower already soars above other office blocks in the area.

It was originally due to have been completed in 2011 and would have been one of the world's largest amid a boom in supertall building projects, particularly in the Gulf states.

"The project is frozen," Chigirinsky was quoted as saying by the Interfax news agency. "This is the decision we have made."

Since work started, development and real estate have been badly hit by the financial crunch with companies halting projects and housing prices slumping.

"We don't see any opportunities on the market to finance the project, nor do we see demand for it," Shigirinsky was quoted as saying. "We have no idea whatsoever what will happen tomorrow."

Neither Russian Land nor Foster & Partners were available for immediate comment on Friday.

I just heard that the construction work (at least the russion tower, 612m) has stopped due to the financial crises?
Is that correct?

Russia Tower stopped a while ago, hopefully it will restart. No other towers u/c are on hold though, however, towers that are planned will probably start construction later.

MCG projects (Eurasia and Imperia) are ongoing. Fooks has money, since he has bought two Capital Group projects just last week. Imperia is topped out by its box. There is only egg left. Eurasia making very good progress on core and cladding.

One Capital Group project is on hold (16 IBC). Another (City of Capitals) is very close to finish. Bottom part is almost done. They are finishing cladding of SPb tower and working on Moscow top (it will be extended a bit).

City Hall will seems to be built on city budget. There is a good progress on foundation slab. It's hard to say anything about Mercury City Tower and The Terminal. The Terminal has deepest pit (7 floors + foundation). Naberezhnaya Tower, Northern Tower and Tower 2000 are completed. Russia mall seems making progress as well.
