is there a certain reason why the copper cladding looks golden? is it the lightening from outsind or a spcial lightening effict of the camera?

I would love to have seen this one in either LA or Toronto! ...

But Moscow just is fine as well.

Imagine it with blue blue clear sky and at dusk! it will be glazing like Gold ... the best to be depicted on a post card.

Actually it will dominate in the other days. Most of the winter there looks like the latest photos with a dull gray sky. And this dull gray sky is filled with dull bluish-greenish skyscrapers. Something gold/orange/copper should be there just to improve the mood.

Now you've got me thinking. It would certainly diversify Downtown yet would fit in just fine in Long Beach.

Yes... I like the Copper color anyhow.

Long Beach??? how so there? lol ... why not the financial district or let's say next to Ritz hotel? can be a fun place to have something of such magnitude and color.

And yes, all post cards will display IBC area sooner or later

This tower keeps inching upwards, while the Shard has stalled for weeks. Mercury City should be getting quite close to 300m now.

Amazing, love this one so much. Looks super 1980s, super modern, and super futuristic all at the same time.

Yes I agree with you.

In Toronto there is the Royal Bank of Canada building in the same color and that is so pretty, but this one is far taller than RBC in Toronto.

Is it just me, or has the construction slowed down by a whole lot on Mercury City Tower?
