Btw; how can UNESCO say lowrise skyline without blinking? That's kind of oxymonoric... I have a supreme view of a lowrise skyline. Trust me; whatever qualities a lowrise city has, the view from afar is not one of them.

UNESCO has criticised ex-Soviet states for their handling of ancient sites.
Being founded in 1703 does not make it ancient. Russia needs more employment to help the economy so they should build it.

the skyscraper doesnt match the skyline.. it'l be better i think if it was made to look like the Russian-style churchs.. just like the jin mao tower in china, it looked like a pagoda, and you know the buildng is in china..

Not yet, media reports that the governor of the city will announce her decision about the tower later this year.

Sorry guys, it´s a very cool tower and a superb design, but the locatin is absolutly wrong! I signed the UNESCO petition for London, but St.Petersburg is different...they´ll destroy the whole atmosphere of the town with this giant!

It's a nice looking building that I would be glad to see built somewhere within 50 miles of where I am, but in St. Pete, maybe they should have tried to give it an older look to fit in somewhat so the public would be more accepting.

Does St Petersberg have, or plan to have, a non-central business district like Canary Wharf or La Defence? A district like that would be far more suitable for this building, plus it's more likely that it would be approved.

I think the design is great, but this will look MASSIVE in St Petersburg. People say London is a low-rise city, and 300m towers look huge.... but St Petersburg is *really* low-rise and 400m will look enormous.

I like St Petersburg how it is now..... I don't think I'd mind this particular skyscraper being built there.... as long as it's the only one.
