Owner of Fire-Stricken Moscow Tower Investigates Damage Caused
By Henry Meyer and Stepan Kravchenko - Apr 3, 2012 9:58 AM CT

"The owner of the unfinished Federation Tower skyscraper in Moscow said it’s investigating damage caused by a fire to see if it will delay construction.

“We’ve taken a time out to see if this affects our construction schedule,” Yulia Brazhentseva, a spokeswoman for Potok8, said by phone today.

Two fire-fighting helicopters were deployed to help extinguish yesterday’s fire on the tower’s 66th and 67th floors. The blaze broke out about 8 p.m. in Moscow after wind blew a protective banner onto a light projector, the developer said.

The tower, which was originally planned to be Europe’s tallest, was built with concrete that can withstand a fire for as long as four hours, Potok8 said in an e-mailed statement. “The building frame itself wasn’t damaged by the fire,” it said. The blaze was put out four hours after it started, at about midnight, the Interfax news agency reported.

There were no injuries from the fire, which affected about 300 square meters (3,200 square feet), according to a statement on the Emergency Ministry’s website. "

What about the crane columns? The steel must be weakened from the fire?

This tower is really unlucky. First it was on hold for years because of the financial crisis and now the fire.

I hope construction can resume very soon!

If it was Eurasia that caught fire, I don't think it would have fared as well. The columns are thin and unfireproofed unlike the big concrete beams of the federation tower.

From what I see it doesn't look that bad. It could of been alot worse i.e. CCTV hotel in Beijing.
