Skyline Photos Show Europe's Tallest Building Nearly Finished

Quote:
A pair of skyscrapers 95 and 63 floors tall rise from a shared nine-storey podium. The 374- and 243-metre towers, developed by Potok, contain residential and office uses. The shorter building, Tower West, finished in 2008. The taller of the two, Tower East, faced numerous delays that plagued construction. All work on the tower was halted in 2008 when the global economic recession hit Russia. The building stalled at a height of 170 metres until 2011, when construction finally resumed.

Workers weren't out of the woods yet though. A blaze in 2012 broke out on the 67th floor, subsequently requiring major repairs. But with the tower now topped out and cladding enveloping the vast majority of the structure, it looks like most of these troubles can be forgotten. Recent photos from Flickr users Bajtai Tamás and René Conny Heinen show the district's immense size, with the Federation Towers peaking in the centre.

Not ugly, but also nit dominant. And the problem is, that the highest building of a skyline should really look dominant. They should build Huacheng International Plaza next to it and the problem is resolved

This is quite a bit taller than the Shard especially considering the last 50 meters of that building is vanity height.

Moscow looks great these days!

Without central spire, Mercury tower looks the best in the cluster, by far.

With the spire, it would still be the best, but not so stand-out.

Yeah, this tower was still the tallest tower in Europe at this point until Lakhta Center in Saint Petersburg completed around 2018/2019.

The occupancy rate of the buildings varies from 25% to 100%. The average occupancy rate is about 55% (as of the beginning of 2016).
