I may disagree with the 'politics' of Gazprom and also the location of the building (St.Petersburg imo is in the same category city as Prague, Rome or Venice in terms of historical city ensemble, but seemingly this does not suffice), but the architecture of the building is quite impressive.

So, this is the design that was selected?


Excellent, as this is the one that I personally favored.

This is an excellent looking design.. My only suggestion would be if it was a little taller (I probably say that about every building though), maybe in the 100 floor range.

This looks almost like a proposal in Shangai that got scrapped a little while back. I think it was to be built near the Jin Mao Tower...

I've never been to Saint Petersburg. I'm interested to know specifically why some say this will visually, or aesthetically ruin the district it is planned for.

from Russian sub forums:

Many people don't like that Gazprom tower dominates all historical buildings. Also many percieve the tower as symbol of Gazprom ruling the city and not the city's government. And some people find the way it dominates the city very similiar to Citadel in Half-Life 2

It was on the news about that tower, here in Helsinki. They said the local people there don't like the idea. They say it would ruin the "view" in St. Petersburg. I think the maxium height of a building there is limited at the height of 45 meters. The company, who is about to build that tower, has already reserved a huge space for that tower even though it isn't even approved yet.

Wonderful tower, the location is fantastic next to the water. The facade looks excellent. I almost forget I like the video too.

Russia under fire over St. Petersburg skyscraper plan
By Denis Pinchuk

ST PETERSBURG, Russia, Jan 31 (Reuters Life!) - A giant skyscraper planned for St Petersburg would ruin the Russian city's historic skyline, the United Nations cultural body said on Wednesday.

Gas monopoly Gazprom is pressing ahead with plans for the so-called Gazprom City in St Petersburg, a low-rise city with an elegant skyline dotted with churches, gilded spires and old mansions.

"Gazprom City is the most visible problem in St Petersburg," Francesco Bandarin, head of the UNESCO World Heritage Centre, told reporters through a translator on a visit to the city.

"The project has raised UNESCO concerns, mainly due to its proximity to St Petersburg's historic centre ... St Petersburg is a horizontal city.

"An architectural solution that goes against its historic background is unacceptable."

St Petersburg is listed by UNESCO as a world heritage site. It was founded by Peter the Great in 1703 as a "window to Europe" and Gazprom's plans to build the 300-metre-high skyscraper has triggered a storm of criticism from historians.

The city's skyline survived a 900-day siege by German forces during World War Two after Hitler ordered the city wiped off the face of the earth. In Soviet times, the city was known as Leningrad and Russian President Vladimir Putin was born there.

Bandarin said he had raised Gazprom's architectural plans with St Petersburg's governor.

"It's a proposal by the Gazprom corporation. It has not been approved yet, which is what I heard from the governor," Bandarin said. "UNESCO will not abandon the city to the whims of fate."

UNESCO has criticised ex-Soviet states for their handling of ancient sites, including Uzbekistan's hasty efforts to restore the ancient Silk Road city of Samarkand, home to valuable Islamic art and architecture.

That's a bit of a silly question.

They are again of location, not against of the city. There is a common opinion that it should be built in the Coastal district.
