Yeah, but Sacre Coueur isnt super central and no-one would build a tower right behind that. Smolny isnt super central and they ARE building this behind it! kinda sad...

Yeah, agreed. Chicago Spire looks like a rolled up weiner. This is majestic and gorgeous. Im not saying the Spire is bad, but this is a whole new level of design.

Gazprom Skyscraper Denounced

St. Petersburg residents spoke out against the planned construction of a 1050 foot/ 320 m tall skyscraper for the headquarters of the state energy company Gazprom at a public hearing. About 600 residents and activists confronted officials who defended proposed changes in city zoning laws to allow for the building to go up. "St. Petersburg is no village and it's skyline is an object of world admiration," said Tatyana Krasavina, head of a group fighting the project. Present regulations limit the height of buildings to 157 feet/ 48m.

counterstrike (CS) vs Half life 2 (Okhtacenter)

Of course CS is more magnificient project, this one looks very sexy by design. Maybe I'm the only one but I don't think this building could spoil skyline. Because when you walk dont the street you never see it. Actually it isn't in the historical center anyway. Of course they could build it in the new buisness center but this place is ok too. I like it's style really much, it's fresh looking.

A classy design for a gorgeous city... Looks like Gazprom's logo, nice flame. But please have it built it as far as possible from Piter's core, and mostly, that we don't see it when we admire Piter's gems and pretend we are czars, or when we admire Haussman's perspectives in Paris and pretend we are emperors, or Venice or Prague... 5 km may not be enough. It may ruin the city's atmosphere and skyline…Does anyone know how it will rendre on street level? Please Vladimir don't inflict this to your home town. Build everything you wish in bling bling Moscow, but leave the Kirov, the Ermitage and the churches alone.

Arabtec lands $2.7bn Russian tower deal
by Lynne Roberts on Sunday, 27 April 2008
CONSTRUCTION DEAL: Arabtec is to build the 400-metre-tall Okhta Centre in St. Petersburg.
CONSTRUCTION DEAL: Arabtec is to build the 400-metre-tall Okhta Centre in St. Petersburg.




Arabtec Construction said on Saturday it had won a 10 billion dirham ($2.72 billion) project to construct a 400-metre tower and five other buildings in St. Petersburg.

The UAE firm won over Russian and European bidders for the deal to build the mixed-use Okhta Centre development, jointly owned by Gazprom Neft, the oil arm of the Russian national gas company Gazprom, and the City of St. Petersburg.

The complex includes office space, along with leisure and entertainment facilities including a library and sports centre.

Work will begin soon, and is expected to be completed over 43 months, Arabtec said in a statement.
