Quite to the contrary- although the smooth side of the tower is very nice, I really don't the striped side- it clashes too much with the other side and makes it feel somewhat like a candy cane.

I respectfully disagree Blue Flame. The striped sides emphasize the smooth cladding of the other sides. I think if they were all smooth the elegant shape wouldn't stand out as much. Plus the stripes fit with the whole DNA inspiration.

This is quite the mindblowing cluster to have a huge complex like City of Capitals literally blend and often disappear into the crowd. I almost never notice CoC in pictures anymore, though when it was first built I thought it was incredible. IBC just keeps getting better and better!

in famous Russian muvi "Stiliagi" the seven sisters served as so powerful bacdrop in many scenes. IBC has every quality to depict Moscow today

I wonder how many of these towers will be virtually empty. The Dubai effect. Status over substance. At least they look great.

this is not Dubai, Moscow needs skyscrapers just because it's a huge financial center, it's not about status, it's about business

The construction boom is rather driven by property market trend

When the market is hot, the investors rush in to build to get a piece of the pie so it may lead to excessive supply

Thats nothing unusual in real estate business.

I totally believe ibc developments driven by market, not political plan

Stunning !!!
I like the mise en valeur of the buildings with the lighting (Mercury for instance). However it is not so eco friendly to light the towers under construction ...

That's so great. The shapes of the buildings are awesome and I like that they used differend colors of glass.

Nothing will be empty. There's a big lack of offices in Moscow.
More buildings should to be build there. This cluster is not enough. Although, I'd build them in a cluster outside of the city.
