Bloody hell this is starting to look big now and this is the smallest tower!!! Will look fanastic when completed!

Have to say congrats to Moscow on all their development go on, wish London could be brave enough as Moscow is and build their bloody approved buildings without much hassle!

If you don't mind me asking where is the money coming from for all this development? Is there a demand for office space in Moscow from international companies or is it all going to be taken up by russian companies? Reason I ask is because the divide of wealth seems quite large in russia and after reading a book about Roman Abramovich and how he gained his wealth im interested to know. Forgive me if anyone finds what I asked offensive or ignorant - im just curious. Many thanks

There is huge demand for office space from both Russian and international companies. There is also huge demand for hotels. I can't remember how many, but Hyatt bought a bunch of floors for hotels in Federation.
Lots of demand, not much supply. Hence the construction of Moscow city.

Hope that helps.

These buildings, both planned and under construction, look amazing. I am very impressed.

Many thanks to our Russian friends Coth, Bolik and others for these photographs and renderings.

Очень хороший!

Yes the divide of wealth is large but IBC is a commercial project: businessmen invest money in projects they want while divide of wealth is a government's problem. Abramovich made some kind of a deal with Russian government: Putin don't ask anything about his money while Abramovich should make a poor depressive region Chukotka rich and effective. And he did. I think it is a very good deal for all. If Berezovskiy, Gusinskiy, Khodorkovskiy and so on did the same, maybe we would live now in a much richer country...
