I think after the ceremony there'll arrive tons of machines to build the slurry wall and the foundation.... the white and clean excavator is just a representative for the show!
And they'll make a big party with a lot of Vodka!!!

Here it goes:

MOSCOW, September 18 (RIA Novosti) - Moscow Mayor Yury Luzhkov laid a symbolic foundation stone at the building site of the 'Russia Tower' in central Moscow Tuesday.

The construction of the 612-meter pyramid-like tower, with a total area of 470 square meters (5,000 square feet), is due to be completed by 2012. The tower is set to become Europe's highest building.

The Russia Tower, located in Moscow City, the Russian capital's new business center, will contain shopping centers, offices, hotels and apartments.

"This building will be unique in both size and architecture," Luzhkov said, adding that it will become "a symbol of Russia."

"We will not stop here," added Luzhkov. "We are, essentially, in the process of constructing a new city."

The tower was designed by the British architect Norman Foster.

Looks like nobody of russian forumers was able to take pictures of the ceremony because of the security measures. We are now waiting for news agencies to upload their video reports and pics to the internet.

Groundbreaking for Foster + Partners’ super-high tower in Moscow

Today’s groundbreaking of Foster + Partners’ Russia Tower – the tallest building in Europe – has been marked at a ceremony attended by Yuri Luzhkov, the mayor of Moscow, and members of the Moscow Government. Set to be a striking new addition to the dynamic high-rise skyline of Moscow City, its unique form will be visible landmark from the heart of Moscow.

The building continues the practice’s investigation into the nature of the tower, taking structural, functional, environmental and urban logic to a new dimension. The mixed-use project incorporates apartments, hotel, office and leisure space and will have an ‘energy cycle’ that pioneers sustainable architecture and reinforces the economic and social vitality of Moscow City.
