those barracks are owned by mercury city tower developer.

This tower reminds me very of John Hancock Tower with long cross bracing structural steels inside and the shape.

Very nice video. Very nice building. Top reminds me of the Tyrell building from Blade Runner.

How does someone get their books down from the middle of that bookshelf in the apartment view (image 6)?

I have question about the roof of this building. So the top floor is at 500m and roof is 610. In the photos is the roof, is there any habitable floor there or is it like the Burj dubai steel section with no habitable floors.

Because Sinatra sings that song in English , and English is a commercial language , so that was to appeal to world wide clientele , that's not a bad idea at all

I don't know... from some photos I've seen (can't recall where I saw them) it may seem the top three "blades" contain habitable space. The pic posted five posts ago by buildmilehightower, instead, is not so clear in this respect.

Maybe they thought that the Russian mafia are the only ones who can afford apartments there and they would like the Sinatra association

Yes, it's really the wrong style for a 21st Century building

Your statement is kind of vague... do I understand correctly that a Sinatra song has wrong style to accompany a 21st century building?
