Mercury City Tower is certainly an interesting skyscraper.. I still don't like it too much because of its copper-colored facade.

The most adored building in Moscow.
This orange colour, these white strips make this tower something brave in field of greyness... It's successful experience. To be honest I had never expected such in Moscow.
I like this building.

Thank you for sharing!
I thought that I'm the only person who remembers Freddie when hears Mercury Tower!
As if this tower is named after my lovely singer!
I love this tower!

I built Mercury City Tower in Minecraft as well but with orange wool for the walls
I actually built quite a lot of buildings from this site in that game...

Personally, I think this tower looks more 80s because everybody sems to link 70s with the International Modernist 'boxes' (as people call them)

By all means, 80s is not a bad thing.

Anyone else notice the lighting from the setbacks? Awesome.
I hope Evolution will have the corner lighting as well!

Looks like they set up a second crane to remove the tower crane!

Hopefully this will do an 'Infinity Tower' scenario and the cladding problem will be fixed eventually.

I don't think that the black cladding is final. But a question: why the second crane? Maybe they built the spire which we saw in the renderings where the cladding was white.
