However am I right in thinking this will be covered by other buildings in the cluster, if future projects go ahead? This building probably won't be seen much...

Mercury Tower will not be closed by other buildings in foreseeable future, it possibly might be closed by Duma Tower which is cancelled now

Seriously... Ok I guess I've made my point but (and great photos btw) this is IMO the ugliest skyscraper u/c in Europe, possibly the planet!
But it will be tallest in Europe before Federation Tower completion

Hey, this tower is still under construction, too early to judge it. Lets look at its renders again

I love this tower. I don't think it would fit in anywhere else in Europe, but it just screams MOSCOWWWWW

Actually it was. Moscow is actually more European in terms of location (Ok, Eastern European if you must) than London. Again, why do you have to stir up a flamewar again and again, did you get bored of the 'Shard' so that's why you come here? /sigh

i'd say London and Moscow are very similar, they are both slightly seperate in terms of geography and politics from Europe, London built the first undergorund system Moscow wasn't far behind, both have alot of history both have been attacked by the Germans in WWII, London built Canary Wharf Moscow are building their CBD. to be honest there are only rivalries because they are so similar and easy to compare

Nope.

I was actually joking when I said 'Moscow isn't in europe'. A joke. I know how sensitive you Russian forumers are these days about that issue, so I PRETENDED to troll.

Get it now? That's kinda why I said 'lol' after it.

A misunderstanding obviously, but hey, peace out dudes, if the towers anything like the renders it could totally prove 'all these English haters' wrong. (us English are still bitter since 2018 decision

There is a good argument the English and the Russians are complete opposites, but as it goes I agree with you, we share a lot in common, were all human... And we both kicked French butt

I joke, but seriously, sorry for any aggrivation caused.

Despite me seeming a 'hater', I actually greatly admire this cluster... Very nice shapes, and I suppose a bit of colour shouldn't hurt. Until this tower is finished I shall reserve further judgement

And don't forget about the size and population. When someone tries to compare transport problems and solutions in Moscow and Paris or Helsinki, I always say that the only city in the Europe with such scale of transport issues is London.

looks good, but the color of the glass is strange to have to wait to see how this is done.
