This has nothing to do with LAKHTA center, no Swedish fortress of sort here, nowhere is it written that the works are being stopped.
Okhta Center is a former name of Lakhta Center. If they meant entirely different project on okhta center old location they should specifically state it imo. Even all the renders in the articles shows the lakhta center at the sea front.

This way not only we but also ctbuh and themoscowtimes got all confused.

Yes but on a totally different plot, it's called Okhta and not Lakhta for a reason... these are the names of two different areas in Piter.

Don't know about the Moscow times (nobody posted a link to a Moscow times article btw), but the Ctbuh did get somewhat confused, yes. Possibly they can't read Russian very well. Better wait for confirmation from our Russian forumers before reposting alarmist claims...

Ctbuh links to themoscowtimes and moscowtimes list kommersant as a source. Also ctbuh links to a building page of okhta/lakhta center (and it dit mention "it's also known as Lakhta Center") and all the above articles shows current lakhta center sea side renderings. All that obviously suggest the tower we discuss here in this thread is dead, which apparently is not true.

From your article from Komersant:

Quote:
Градозащитники Санкт-Петербурга одержали победу в борьбе против застройки принадлежащего "Газпрому" Охтинского мыса, где ранее планировалось возвести скандальный 400-метровый небоскреб "Охта-центр".
http://www.kommersant.ru/doc/2213989

Quote:
Gradozaschitniki St. Petersburg won the fight against building belonging to "Gazprom" Okhta Cape, where previously planned to build a controversial 400-meter skyscraper "Ohta-Center"
Click on picture with cannons and you will find this text.
This case has nothing to do with the current project.

I think kommersant should note that the tower is rising with different name on different location in the city. Also the fact that they published new lakha center sea side renderings along with the article didn't help much

Sounds to me like bad journalism, not everyone is a skyscraper fanatic and couldn't realize the difference.

By court decision Gazprom was forbidden to built anything on it's site near Okhta river.
There is absolutely no relation with Gazprom's construction site in Lakhta (construction site for Lakhta Center).
Okhta and Lakhta are two different places in St. Petersburg.
Lakhta Center is under construction in regular regime.

You're totally confused. U/C and move this section back.
Okhta-center is near Okhta, Lakhta-center is near Lakhta, you see?

And, God forbid, never read soviet newspapers before dinner. - But there are no other newspapers. - So don't read any at all.

Geez, good to see this back UC. I guess the moderators jumped to conclusions to quickly like they did with Ping'an a few months ago.
