Actually, if i remember correctly, Mirax Group was considering building a 750m tower in Moscow-City, but they quickly droped this idea.

Edit: here it is, Ivan the Great Tower



Instead, they decided to build four 160-200m towers in it's place, but it's just a proposal now.

A rotating skyscraper is a stupid idea unless the entire skyscraper rotates as one piece, or there are a few rotation patterns. If each floor rotates individually as its owner decides- the tower will become a huge mess.

Excellent news, can't wait to see this one completed. I also think it'll be completed a couple years before 2016.

That's not what the developers want you to see then...On every render, the tower has a perfect straight or spiral form. But in reality it will be a chaotic form because all the individual units can rotate on their own. Or, even worse than a chaotic mess is a almost perfect spiral or straight form but with some units facing another side so the pattern is broken.
