Not even 20, but even 10 years ago it was hardly imaginable.

But well begun is half done, isn't it?

Who knows what Moscow will look like in the same span of 10 years?

But if you compare Moscow with European cities like Paris and London it is more impressive. And thereby Moscow has a longer history than New York for example with a lot of historical buildings. You can see Moscow growing from century to century and that is also what happening in Europe as well. You can't see such mix of styles in Asia or America.

Yes, of course, I know of so many American and Asian cities that have upwards of 5 supertalls just finished or under construction. ;-)

Look at a panorama of Moscow if you want to see more high-rises to complement these buildings. Of course a shot of just the IBC looks like a drop in the ocean. It IS a drop in the ocean of all the buildings in Moscow! The best drop though, heh.

It is rather upsetting for me as for one living in Moscow to see a certain slump in the construction of the Business Center-some projects were cancelled, some are on hold, the construction of some has been slowed down.

I do remember I was so sure back in 2006 that the pearl of this center-Russian Tower- would be finished in 2010.
