That guy wonders why the tower will be built alone (not in the cluster). Actually I also think that Okhta center must be either surrounded by other skyscrapers or moved far from the historical center of Piter. It will look very strange: one supertall in classical skyline of the city. Just like only one tooth in a mouth..

CONSTRUCTION DEAL: Arabtec is to build the 400-metre-tall Okhta Centre in St. Petersburg.




Arabtec Construction said on Saturday it had won a 10 billion dirham ($2.72 billion) project to construct a 400-metre tower and five other buildings in St. Petersburg.

The UAE firm won over Russian and European bidders for the deal to build the mixed-use Okhta Centre development, jointly owned by Gazprom Neft, the oil arm of the Russian national gas company Gazprom, and the City of St. Petersburg.

The complex includes office space, along with leisure and entertainment facilities including a library and sports centre.

Work will begin soon, and is expected to be completed over 43 months, Arabtec said in a statement.

Did Arabtec inform them that there is no such things as a deadline in the UAE, and that this is part of the way they work?

Im sure it will be fine though, good to read that it will get built .

C'mon. Eiffel tower looks quite harmonical in Paris skyline. If they built something like Eiffel in Piter, it'll be great. But not that boxy skyscraper with glass cladding..
