If you guys want to compare buildings, there is another section for that!

At first I didn't like the orange cladding, but it seems to be darker that before.
The colour of the cladding looks pretty good.

City of Capitals and Naberezhnaya Tower have already set the standard for Euro skyscrapers, London Bridge is keeping it up (btw I think they would have looked looked absolutely fabulous together).

Could be said that moscow just followed the standard the Gherkin set, but I agree, they would!

Enough off topic stuff, back to mercury city tower!

My wild guess is that a lot of people are closely following both threads just because one of these scrapers will be the next tallest european building. If the Mercury Tower will finish second then the Shard will hold this record for a while.
Nothing more to battle for as I believe. And surely this comparison have nothing to do with quality issues.

That's true. Few discussions about cladding or architecture, mostly about who will be the first and how long Shard will be the tallest.

Seems with this building it's either you love it or hate it... Anyone in-between?

It will be one of the brighest stars of the IBC so we will then see if the tower complements or utterly destroys the whole cluster

I kind of like it. I'm not sure how it'll fit in with the rest of the cluster, but I'm glad someone decided to take a break from the "let's cover it in clear/blue glass" formula.

I suppose you could call it refreshing- and on occasions (mostly at night) it looks VERY good. But the fact is this'll date faster than you can say 'russia'. Mark my words, in 10-20 years people will think 'what were they thinking!?'.

I like the angles and the red orange glass they're using to wrap the building with. The building looks super stable.

Its not really innovative in comparison to the other super talls in development, but i can't ever see it being an i-saw either.

If anything it just looks aged in the sense that style wise it looks like it was built in the 90's.
