Brad, you're such a stereotyper...

Cladding is certainly interesting. I think it will be best when its put in context with the other finished towers.

Look at the reflection of the Mercury tower over the Federation Tower

Good eye! I love that! The deep blue of Federation goes so well! Once both towers are completed that will look even better!

Also, we here missed 70-80s period in highrise architecture and there is nothing wrong in doing some catch up, as proper skyscrapercity is expected to have all the time periods represented.
I was just thinking something similar. This building evokes one of the ages of high rise and economic confidence - the 70s/80s, and why not, it was a thrilling time and had a definite energy. i like the idea of having clearly contemporary towers inspired by different eras.

My only concern with this development is that it'll be another dubai or shanghai for people on foot - absolutely awful at ground level and hell to get around, or spend time in, in anything other than an expensive car!!

The 70-80's were not times of economic confidence. At least not in the world, as compared to the 50s and 60s.

However, in the UK the 80's were times of recovery due to Thatcher's reforms.

This is delusion. Majority of people who work in IBC now, are going to work by Metro, not by a personal car due to heavy automobile traffic in Moscow.

Nowdays they hardly dare to build a boxy super tall. Do you have an example of such a super tall? (I do)

BTW The height will probably be lower because the original spire will be shortened much.

I would like to see more pictures of the whole cluster, in this thread.

As Mercury City goes up, I want to see how it fits into the area.

But there is general thread about IBC at this forum:
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...297180&page=96

I'm think that it's more logical to have a few separate threads about each high-rise building in IBC and one general thread about the whole complex.

You mean "finally some progress", don't you? Yes, I see two new floors in five days, so MCT could've sped up. But in general I'm surprised how construction went on during cold winter...

...so what's the size now? Level 45 for core? And around 190-200m?

The updates here are among the best on SSC by the way.
