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.

Yeah, if he stopped trying to use that sense of humour & trying all the time, we could all relax. Attaboy vanhenrik! You're just uhmmm, youthfully "exciteable" You do contribute.


So it seems like local NIMBYs are worried about dust that is going to come from construction! Oh boy!

som info



rom Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Russia Tower is a supertall skyscraper currently under construction[1] in Moscow International Business Center, Moscow, Russia. Building planned to be completed in 2012 and reach height of 612 meters (2,008 feet). In a time of completition it may be the tallest building in Europe and second tallest in the world.

The total area of the structure will cover 520,000 square meters (128.5 acres), of which 38% (200,000 sq m/49 acres) will be located underground. The tower will contain 118 floors, 101 elevators, underground parking to accommodate 3680 automobiles. The first floor will be used for commercial shops. The building will be able to hold 30,000 people simultaneously. Construction began on 18 September 2007, when the building's foundation stone was laid down in an official groundbreaking ceremony.



History of the project



Originally, The Russia Tower was proposed for plots 2 and 3 of the Moscow International Business Center in 1994 as the world's tallest building; a 648 meter (2,126 feet), 125-story tower. It was designed by Chicago-based architectural firm Skidmore, Owings and Merrill. It was soon moved to plot 14. In the middle of 2003 an updated, 648 meter (2,126 feet), 134-story, design had been moved to plots 17 and 18. In January 2004, the Moscow Development Company (STT Group) has been appointed as the main investor and developer of a $2-billion[2] project.
