I agree. Many westerners have the idea that apartment/commie blocks are for poor people, which is not true. For example, a small studio in New York or Tokyo can cost over a million dollars, while a mansion in many Americans cities cost only 200,000 to 300,000.
By the way, how much are those units in Moscow?

In Moscow, prices start at $ 3000 per m2 (prefabricated house in the suburbs).

In the IBC price starts at $ 15000 and comes to $ 30000 per m2. Wealthy people are buying apartments that could not stand each day in huge traffic jams at the entrance to Moscow.

I wouldn't be so optimistic. If investment process looks like in Poland (and there is no prime contractor at the moment) [Złota 44 case], then we can see visible progresses late spring. If prime contractor is present, I expect progresses in 6-8 weeks.

I highly recommend that they restart working ASAP! By the time I visit Moskow in June, I want to see a confidently growing tower!

Isn't it just too cold to work (with concrete)?

no probs at all of course. concrete is always pouring at specific temperature. heating helps to control it.

They can heat it but it slows the progress. I dont think much other except the mercury city tower will now work with concrete.
