I am devastated to hear that the Russia Tower will never be built. The company proposes to use the site to build three smaller skyscrapers and a large parking garage. Despite this, I hope that a 600-metre tower that has a different design that either of the Russia Tower proposals should be proposed. And i still do NOT want those three smaller skyscrapers and/or that parking garage constructed as they will definitely spoil the plan for the Moscow International Business Centre and I reject any arguments.

Moscow needs a signature skyscraper, that's a fact. Russia Tower looked too much like the Ryugyong Hotel. Conclusion: they're using crisis as an excuse to change the design for political reasons. A new ~600m will be build in the next few years, I'm sure.

That's an interesting theory, albeit unlikely.

I was pretty vague, wasn't I? But I don't understand you reaction either. I suppose when you're vague you'll get interpreted differently by every individual based on his/her own mind. Sorry, ?

I can not believe that they cancelled this project. It was impecable for the style and design quota of Moscow and Russia. I am sad to see that it has to go for good. I hope someone else can maybe fund it to be a success. Why was it cancelled?

It's not cancelled yet. Nobody has bought a plot so far yet, nor nobody has bought Russian Land entire business or single projects. So it's still on hold.

next time read the thread before posting

Any chance you can change the title from 'Cancelled' to 'On Hold'. I think it's misleading people.

I'd change the whole title. Whatever is eventually built in the plot, is going to be a completely different design.
