It will be hard for me to adjust to the absence of the Tower of Russia, but I guess a tower with a fancy observation deck as the focal point of the cluster makes more sense.

So Tower of Russia is definately cancelled(the status is proposed in the SSP diagram)? What is the tower with the oberservation deck called? Info?
I wonder about the model:are all these box shaped buildings really so similar in reality?
It must have been funny and inspiring to build all the models.

This tower is the replacement for Tower of Russia then. A pity since I liked tower or russia better. It had a sleeker design.

The observation deck should be really cool. I'm not wild about the design though.

NO! Russia Tower is so much better! This is ugly and cheap looking, brings down the general high quality architecture of the rest of IBC!

Its great hearing about something in Moscow that doesnt use those three letters in an acronym. Cool towers, Moscow is going to have an awesome skyline if these are all built.

Russia Tower is not cancelled. It is Mirax proposal for plot 23. I agree this ufo isn't good idea. Without it tower will be just perfect. Shard will smoking outside if no ufo. I counted at least 101 levels (without blue glassed floors) and about 580 meters.

As for rest of IBC outside of this proposal - some of plots outdated, like plot 11. There are few highrises and skyscraper now planned. Plots 17-18 could be changed as well. Plot 16a, where 50 storeys tall proposal now. Also plot 20 where 46 storeys tall proposal etc...

For some reason, I don't like that new tower. It just feels like it dosent belong. And I'm alos wondering, what are those other towers, I've never heard about them (I'm talking about the ones behind the Complex Federation).

Seems to me you are completely one eyed biased. Don't be so lame.

I like it by the way.

Looks really cool! Did anyone notice a similarity to Shanghia? A cluster of modern looking, tall buildings by a bend in the river...
