In terms of population density London is far away from Moscow, we'd better compare Moscow and Paris, in fact. I actually see very little in common between Moscow and London. Moscow is an oriental-type city with commieblocks and high-rises, with lots of skyscrapers mostly while London is like an enormously expanded village with some high-rises and skyscrapers.

I do know but I just wanted to state that for Moscow they are standard they are everywhere and they are numerous.. For London they are not. And such things as the Shard, which are huge, look as if they stand in a desert field.

This is awesome. Bringing back some good old 80's bronze stained windows. And the simple angled design quite striking. It will stand out from the rest.

Why do you have to take every compliment and turn it into a "Moscow is better than everything" response? Take a deep breath and relaaaaaax. Not everyone hates this tower or is looking to compare it to the Shard lol
