One of the BEST designs I have seen to date...

Out of EVERY structure that I have seen either proposed, or under construction, this tower is my favorite design.. And they are smart to put the obs deck at the top.. this building will be the "signature" icon tower of Moscow when its done, just like the Burj Dubai is within Dubai... Chicago Spire is a cool design, but there is no obs deck there.. I like the Russia Tower design better than that anyway...

Ive mentioned this in the Burj Dubai thread, and everybody simply whines about there being no floor space that high up in the Burj while just the central core alone towards the top is still around 4000-5000 sq ft..

Has anybody ever been to the top of the Empire State Building?? I mean the top deck that you have to pay extra to get to (on the 102nd floor).. now thats small! But how many thousands of tourists are still able to go up there?!?

If you base your opinion of a building off of whether or not it has an observatory, you're really letting the tail wag the dog, aren't you? Relax, learn to enjoy architecture for architecture, and height for height. Expecting developers to want to put a public deck on their own building is awfully pretentious, isn't it?

you didnt fully read my post, did you?? I said "My favorite design."
I like how the structure has a graceful, pyramid like frame that terminates off to a nice crown at the top. I really like the external cross bracing elements as well that actually show part of the superstructure that is holding this beast together; Im a sucker for that.. This bit I added in about the obs decks is just to reinforce my opinion..
just my 2 cents...

if this Moscow tower didnt have an obs deck, it would still be my favorite design.. but the obs deck makes it that much better.. I have a much better liking for these monstrosities getting built, when there is a way for everybody to enjoy them, and not just the ultra uber rich multi-millionares..

after all, Moscow tower will be the signature tower of Moscow, just as the Chicago Spire will be the new signature tower of Chicago, as the Burj will be the new icon of Dubai. Because of that reason alone, it would be pretty nice to have some sort of public viewing area, and they will pull in a LOT of money with these decks..

I seriously doubt cuz I can see the construction sight of the Chicago Spire from my window and not much activity yet. Based on the pictures from Moscow, both skyscrapers are on the same level as of today.

Chicago Spire ste already has some of the pile foundations in the ground.
They've only just started excavating the site on the Russia Tower.
Moscows skyline will look brilliant once this and other projects are finished.

Earthquakes are very rare. Magnitude is mostly 2—3, up to 4. Almost all earthquakes are echoes, for example from Carpat mountains, Romaina. Strong earthquakes were never registered in history.

All buildings should be constructed for magnitudes 5 (according to the Russian construction standards — 'SNiP' — construction standards and rules).
