I don't need the link, i need a name and position of government official who said that the project is cancelled. Without it this article means nothing.

It's not cancelled. This rumor is more than three months old. It's just one of ideas what to do with the plot. This possible if the plot will be bought by the Moscow Government. But it also could be bought by Snegiri or by Mirax Group. In the last case Mirax Group urged they will build the Foster project unchanged in full height, if will take over the plot.

So far it's on hold, or, as we have in Moscow P&C, Unknown status .

It would be possible that Russian Government include Mirax Group in an association to build the project ??? (with or without another partners )

I can tell me that russian government decides to not build this tower - it is too symbolic

No. Until Moscow Government is leading by Luzhkov federal government won't have anything to do with Moscow and won't spend Money for it.

But hasn't Mirax stated they didn't have money for it? Or just another rumor? I heard Mirax had some financial problems. Damn it!

But gotta love unknown status of this project

Exactly what I wanted to say. I was saying about Moscow alone and only about ongoing projects. No one from Mirax ongoing projects is on hold.

Russia Tower Site To Become Car Park
Published on 12-06-2009 by Skyscrapernews.com

Word has come out that the planned 600 metre plus tower to stand in Moscow, the Russia Tower, has been officially junked with the site now inauspiciously set to be transformed into a car park making it one of the most notable victims of the current global recession.

Developer Russia Land was expected to begin construction of the tower earlier this year but has struggled to raise the $2 billion in financing that it requires thanks to the relative weakness of the Russian economy compared to China and India.

Russia Land had approached leading rival Mirax to try and secure their participation in the venture, or alternatively sell it on to them however this also failed.

So desperate were Russia Land to try and build something, anything, that they even did a feasibility study into whether it would be possible to construct the tower at a third of its originally approved height - a mere 200 metres. This has also failed.

With the conversion of the site into a car park it now seems likely that the Norman Foster designed pyramidal supertall will never see the light of day, although mothballing the plot in such a way does make it a prime piece of under utilised real estate suitable for future development once the Russian economy has started to recover.

The're not going to leave the site and wait, they decided to built carpark there. Its clear its cancelled. That doesn't mean of course they cant build something there in future. But still feel sorry for that one. One of the best designs i've ever seen.

It would be nice if you will read the thread, at least last several pages, before posting news.

To each his/her own. I think this would be one of the world's greatest supertalls. The prospects look remote this design being built though. If they do build a carpark, then it's fairly likely it'd be years before a new developer bought the site and then most likely they'd go with their own new design.
