They are building another business district in St.Petersburg. The location is nowhere near the center, in fact its the vacant area of grassland in the top-left of this image, just left of the inlet:

And the tower (of unknown size, but it looks pretty damn tall)

Nobody has told here. Important not spoiled views, but it is bad that the silhouette of city which is unique varies. Not it is a lot of cities in the world have the unique silhouette, one of them st.-petersburg, but it can lose it

If you add a unique silhouette of the proposed tower to the unique silhouette of the city you will get a unique silhouette again

I got your point. Still I think that this tower could become a new landmark of St.Petersburg. Building it in the Morskoj Fasad as the post above mine shows, would completely obstruct its beauty and aura, as well as screw up all plans for the Oxta center around it.

Believe me, i'm from St.Petersburg, and I can completely understand the arguements about the Skyline and everything. I am also a bit apprehensive, but not because of the idea itself (which I think will turn out magnificently if done right), but because I fear it may not be done right.

Ohkta Centre design has been approved by the city architect (ie planners) and Gazprom.

Gazprom skyscraper runs into opposition
27 June 2007
Lloyd's List

RUSSIA’S all-powerful gas giant Gazprom is certainly no stranger to ruffling feathers on the international energy markets, but the energy leviathan is currently raising hackles closer to home.

Its controversial plans to relocate its headquarters from Moscow to St Petersburg with the $2.3bn development of a ‘Gazprom City’ business centre including a 396 m high skyscraper has continued to run up against public opposition.

The ambitious development is destined for the right bank of the Neva River in front of Smolny Cathedral, despite regulations forbidding construction of a building of more than 42 m high there.

Gazprom chairman Alexei Miller continues, however, to push the plans ahead and in March announced that the development had been renamed and would be funded differently. Presented as a radical overhaul of the project, the changes effectively mean that a planned office complex will now be a community and business centre to be known as the Okhta Centre and jointly funded by Gazprom and City Hall. The controversial skyscraper, known locally as ‘Miller’s Stick’, however, looks set to stay.

As the historical centre of St Petersburg is a World Heritage Site, UNESCO World Heritage Centre director Francesco Bandarin reportedly reminded Russia last year about its obligations to preserve it and expressed concern over the project.

Despite the potential to generate massive revenues in tax and local business opportunities, the project also remains deeply unpopular with St Petersburg residents, who are already suffering some of the worst traffic congestion in the country

The objections, however, are likely to fall on deaf ears. As one well-placed St Petersburg official told Lloyd’s List: “Out here Gazprom is next to God,and if they want to build it, they will build it.”
