According to weather underground, this heatwave is much larger in size and duration than the 2003 heatwave in western Europe.

the heatwave in 2003 was not only in august. It started in June and ended up in the end of august. in france and germany there were weeks when the hightemp. did`nt fall
under 100 degrees F for weeks. in moscow the temp. are around 95-102 degrees at this
time. what it makes it so bad in russia is the bad air quality cause of the fires.

just to finish this offtop, the hot weather began in May mostly in Central Russia, summiting its temperatures towards the second half of July. In Russia there is almost a month with all-time temperature highs and is going to end( by some prognoses) only in the second half of next week. And Russia is not torrid Spain or Portugal with their hot climate, so these high temperatures are more than enough for us.

Part of cladding on the Northern Tower has been covered for a reason I don't know. Probably they are going to replace broken glass.

How is it possible that they can`t complete just one big CBD in Moscow? I mean is there no need for office space in a city of 10 million people? Is there really a oversupply? I don`t see hundrets of office towers in Moscow. It`s really sucks. Most of the tower are really nice. I just want them to get build.

Tom, since IBC is a district with towers built by independent contractors, there's no obligation by any of them to build any tower by any specific date (officially there are obligations to develop a plot with Moscow's government, but it's not a real deadline). Some of them, like Mirax, were too ambitious to begin with, trying to build several skyscrapers at once (two Federation towers, two Mirax Plaza towers, Federation Tower in Kiev), so when crisis came, they crumbled.

Office building on skyscraper scale is obviously a long money investment - a kind of investment few businessmen in Russia are capable of or are interested in.

I was late by just a few minutes, but couldn't explained better.
