If that's true this thread should remain closed and new one in skyscraper section should be made.

Gosh I got excited even only for the idea of resurrecting this project but it seems it's not going to happen

Even though The Shard is one of the most unique building in my opinion, old Russia Tower design would trump them all. Simply, there is no better representation of a triangular building than this one, design is (again, my opinion) flawless. This is this kind of project that would fit and dominate almost all skylines. If it had been built in Moscow, the MIBC would have been the BEST CLUSTER IN THE WORLD. Without it, it's only second best

To me the Russia Tower was the only great tower to be build in the cbd (Well there was also the mercury tower but they ruined it). And I agree the Russia Tower design was flawless, there was nothing to put your finger on. Would most likely be my 1st favourite tower in the world if build.

On the other hand when I look at mercury city tower I think to myself maybe it was better that they didn't build it there. If they would ruin a perfect design of rt like they did with mct it would be a MAJOR fail imo. It is better to not build it at all than build it cheap, and we knew the rt developer struggled with money issues.

To think of that lost potential really sickens me Even the Shard looks massive to me, but to think that this would have been 2x taller, and wider is mind-blowing.


Seriously. It might be 200 meters shorter, but I think it would have been more impressive than the Burj. At least we are getting the similar looking Kingdom Tower.

Potentially the most beautiful building on the planet externally, and with ultra-classy interiors, lost forever.

It is really a pain the a** but maybe it is better that they hopefully will start it in few years (over 600m of course)
so they don't mess up the cladding or something because of the gained experience and professionalism.

I have to agree that it is perfect and execution has to be perfect.
Imho it is the modern day Cheops pyramid.

It is really unfortunate. But atleast something is coming up.

Is it still being designed by Norman and Fosters?
