They all look so horrible. Can we veto and say none! Which country is this anyway? Where is st petesburg? I really dont mean to be rude but they look like a complete disaster, actually even disasters look slightly better. These designs are repulsive.

St Petersburg is in Russia. You must have a terrible geographical knowledge. This leads me to the conclusion you young/ Australian/ American or a mixture of all three. Sorry, I'm in a tense mood.

I love the video of the tower. It looks so... majestic. But very very lonely.

How did you know I was from Sydney? I don't have a bad geo knowledge; how am i supposed to know where st. petesburg is. I bet if you asked any1 here on the street they wouldn't know either. In my 20s so not too young.

The tower is pointless. Its trying to hard.

Actually there is also a St.Petersburg in the USA. But St.Petersburg in Russia is more famous. Maybe you know it under the former sowjet name "Leningrad".

Wow you must be kidding.... It's a historic city, everyone knows it
Not knowing cities like St. Petersburg means that your geography knowledge is AT LEAST bad

I'm prepared to let this one settle before it gets out of hand.

So what are the details about the winning tower?

Keep the scrapers far from St Petersburg's historical core...totally inappropriate...Scrapers look great in Moscow but it's totally wrong in St Pet's.
