ST. PETERSBURG, Russia (AP) - Lawmakers on Wednesday approved the construction of a skyscraper that will rise near the architectural treasures of Russia's Imperial-era capital, a project that has drawn protests from many residents.

The complex is to be built by 2016.
Why the rush - slow down.

Looks gorgeous, but as already said a million times the location couldn't be more terrible. The historical city centre of St. Petersburg doesn't deserve to be humiliated. Hope they'll build this beautiful skyscraper to somewhere else.

Will this tower improve the skyline of St. Petersburg or spoil it?

It depends upon if it is biult.
To my mind if it is not built it will NOT improve the skyline.

So, can a supertall improve and spoil a mostly low skyline?

This particular one, in my opinion, can only spoil the skyline. they have to change it's color and shape and even move it to different place before it is too late.

I love the look of it, but it could be in a better spot as to not mess up Saint Petersburg's skyline.

IMO, the tower itself is a great design, although it does not fit in st. petersburg - it is simply much too high for this city.
Anyway, hopefully within next couple of years other towers will get build, but looking on the project masterplan, the area is occupied only with very short buildings.

I don't think that this one skyscraper will spoil the skyline, even a cluster of skyscrapers won't. For example Paris, they don't have skyscrapers in the historical center, but they have "La Defense" and it don't spoil the skyline but it even improve it.
