The color is so unique. I really think this will be one of the best looking of all the IBC towers.

I absolutely love the idea of a "Mercury" colored skyscraper, but I'm disappointed with the quality of the cladding. Wavy and plastic like for sure.

Hopefully it will look better as more of it goes up.

It has the same color scheme as Russian Academy of Science
They are not talking about color but quality. I love this building and especialy the color, but this cladding truely turned out, as said before, very wavy and tacky. I really hope it is some protective foil that makes this effect, but it seems it isnt. Well maybe at least it will look nice from distance .

Again. It's not my taste. I wish the glass was more transparent like The Shard BUT with an orange tint in the glass. That would be perfect. Now it looks retro, but in a bad way.

Look at the Mercury City Tower render video.



I think this tower will look great, it will be unique and not as much retro as you think. MIBC need a sunny tower like that.

And, people, don't compare The Shard and MCT, they are too different projects. Shard was planned to be dominant, the best and the most beautifull scyscraper in London. Mercury was planned to be just a filler between two other 500m and 300m supertalls. It doesn't need to be the best. The dominant scyscraper in Moscow should be Russia Tower. I hope it will be build one day.

IMHO

Looking at the last picture posted by Gamma I can tell the protective plastic(if there was any) has been removed and the panels look great and not at all 'wavy'. Check out the reflections, they seem perfect.

The cladding is way too orange, it sticks out too much from the other towers. (even in the video)
Very nicely designed building though.

I agree, it does look a little too orange. A shade darker would've been better. Certain hours of the day should make it look better. At least its something different. I get so bored with nothing but blue/grey glass everywhere.

I think that it will be very unique and original.
I love the cladding just the way it is!

This building is going to stand out, and scream here I am. By the way, that video shows no depth.

I also like the cladding on this way.

Definitely the best european skyscraper under construction so far. I love the design of it which really is unique/unusual, and so is the clad, amazing colour...I was slightly skeptical about the latter at the very beginning, but now, not anymore.

Well done Moscow!

I hope the colours were saturated.
PS The colour of the truck is too bright for me.



The following photo has more realistic colours.
