I almost forgot about this tower. Why aren't there any higher quality renderings of it?

Nice tower, but UGH! This is all way too cramped up! How can this building possibly be valorized if you have the visual covered from virtually every direction? You could only see one perspective of it, and only provided you are on very particular spots. I wish they would pull the tower from its ghetto and move it to Moscow City 2, or three, or anywhere it can breath. Generally speaking, I understand everyone wants to be close to the Federation Tower and the river Moscow, but maybe if the city was more spread out it would look better. Hope they rethink the plot assignment plan...

Are you looking at the highlighted tower in the 2nd picture, if so it's the building to the left of that one.

the plan has been approved in 1994. i hardly doubt it will be reviewed when all project around the core already on their ways. it's not really cramped up. looking from sparrow, winged and bow hills it will perfect connection between CF and City Hall. it will be very situable within skyline.

big city will have more skyscrapers i'm sure, so don't worry



btw, 332 m seems without spire and by the cone of roof. spire catch somewhere 400m i think.

In any case, a tower of this height for Moscow is a good thing. I can't wait until Moscow has it's own skyline identity!

shame this will looked blocked off by the big blocky tower to left as i think this design should be on it's own a little, maybe a small peninsula slightly edgeing into the river.

I like the second glass design more. But the first one looks good too but not as good. Its nice to see Moscow turning into a modern city as well.
