Brad I'm agree with your sign, Moscow's skyline will be the best in Europe, and that's because of buildings like Federation Tower, that are buildings with wonderful and modern designs.

But Moscow is having lot of competition, other cities in Europe are building great buildings like Madrid, Paris and London.

Since Moscow builds the cluster from scratch it needs to build many scyscrapers, while other European cities need to add just a couple of super talls to improve their skylines significantly.

It's coming on well. I still don't find it a particularly inspired design though. It lacks any grace or elegance for me. Is the spire in the middle going to be filled? Will people be able to get to the top?

Yes, there will be some elevators but people will be able to get to the top of the "A" tower, not to the top of the spire.

This part is starting to go up, but very slowly because you post another picture of 28/11/2006 and the truth is that they haven't advance a lot to 7/12/2006.

Some official info from Mirax.

West tower is 61 floors (225 metres) high, East tower is 7 floors (21 metre) high.

First elevator is now being mounted in West tower. This is a Thyssen-Krupp elevator, that will function in central core in 1-32 level range. The first test run is scheduled for New Year's Eve.

There are going to be two types of elevators: Twin and Single Deck ones. Twin will host two (surprise!) lift cars in a single shaft. Computer will operate the cars and decide which one is closer to a 'caller'.

Tower C (spire) is going to be a shaft for four ultra-fast panoramic elevators, bringing people to the top of the building, restaraunts and observation deck at 335 metres.

The list of elevators in West tower (floors in operation):

17 ThyssenKrupp lifts coming in four groups:
  • 6 Twins (1 to 32)
  • 5 Twins (33 to 46)
  • 4 Single Deck lifts (1 to 62) - shuttle for apartments, no stops before 48th floor.
  • 2 Single Deck 'technical' lifts

3 Schindler lifts (-4 to 6)

The list of elevators in East tower:

36 Schindler lifts:
  • 7 for office zones (-4 to 38)
  • 5 for office zones (-4 to 51)
  • 3 express lifts for hotel's guests (-3 to 93)
  • 3 lifts for hotel's personnel (-3 to 93)
  • 4 lifts for hotel's guests (47 to 93)
  • 6 lifts for apartments and VIP guests (-4 to 89)
  • 2 lifts for fire-brigades (-4 to 93)
  • 2 panoramic lifts for general use
  • 2 lifts for hotel and apartments personnel (53 to roof)

If you are a careful reader you'll see there are 34 lifts mentioned. Where are the other two only God and Mirax know =)

Stylobate:

11 Schindler lifts
  • 2 for disabled people
  • 2 for a night club
  • 5 for a offices and general techsupport
  • 2 for kitchen of hotel's restaraunt

Podium:

2 Euroliftservice inclined lifts in Mirax office (-1 to 6). The shafts are actually inclined about 10 degrees.

Also there are going to be 8 Schindler 'transparent' escalators (-4 to 1) - you'll be able to see right through them at all the machinery in work.

Today's shot by Aleksey:
