I'm told there's been some recent news on this, so maybe it's time to re-open the thread.

i saw that someone replied in this thread and put my rageface on to scream at people bumping old threads and then the surprise a trustful member and mod brings hope for us all.

however i wonder if they still have chosen the same plot, since i thought the old plot was sold for a few lower res buildings.

Awesome, hope this takes a positive turn. Norman Foster has to make his mark on Megatalls. So far he's been unlucky. His designs are unique compared to AS+GG Megatalls.

It is seen who was the last to reply the thread before one opens it

PS The Russia Tower as it was planned by Foster will not be built.
PPS In the Russian section we don't have the Russia Tower thread any more. I wonder why this thread exists here.

Yeah, it should go to the Archives. Whatever new project deserves its own thread.

yes i figured, it's just too long ago and the plot is long gone. I really liked the design and spot though, i really hope for something similar, especially similar in terms of height

The wikipedia page for the building says that:
"In January 2012, the Moscow government extended the construction permit to 31 December 2015, stipulating that the total area of structure be decreased to 350,000 square metres (3,800,000 sq ft), of which approximately 240,000 square metres (2,600,000 sq ft) would be located above ground".

There is a reference for the info that appears reliable, though it is in Russian and the Google Translate that I relied on wouldn't have been worth the paste.

If this is not built, there needs to be another 600 meter building with three tapering wings built somewhere else. Kingdom Tower and the Ryugyong Hotel are not enough of this excellent design.

I think that something like the Russia Tower would be fantastic if it was built at Penn station as a part of it's redevelopment.

Too bad. The old design was very spectacular.
