MOSCOW | MosFilm Tower | 213m | 54 fl | 131m | 34 fl | Com

The tower is situated on Pyrieva str. 2. This is a well known Moscow Film area.
In Russian it is called 'Dom na Mosfilmovskaya str'
Don-Stroi company is building the tower.

2 residential towers

- 185 m 45 floors
- 120 m 36 floors







by igor, November 2006



by ulex today










This estate, is situated in the western part of the capital, in the Mosfilmovskaya Street area on the Vorobyovy Hills. The estate includes two high-rise buildings connected between themselves by parallel low-level sections.
The Building One is shaped as a rectangular helical tower. The core of the building consists of circular-shaped elevator halls on each level that function as a single upright threaded rod holding the composition of the building. The twisted building has its vertical dynamics, its architectural solution uses an original rhythm of window panes: the higher from the ground level, the larger the area of window panes. The facade is decorated with special plates of light-toned natural stone.
The second – the lower – high-rise building, uses several types of special glass: transparent, matte, and variously shaded.
The parallel sections connecting the two high-rise buildings face each other with their passage galleries of glass.

The spacious multi-lighted atrium lobby of the central entrance is decorated with natural rock of warm color, and paneled with honey-waxed wood. This area houses mini-cafes, a bathing room for pets, and a large 90-seat cafe. The door on the right-hand side of the entrance hall leads to the commercial and recreation complex.

The construction plan provides for a real English-style garden with large-size trees such as maples, limes, willows, firs and rowans. English lawns alternate with Moresque lawns that require no mowing. Rye, wheat, and flax are planted in patches as small islands. Part of the premises will be decorated with red plants, flowers, and shrubs.
The main square of the residential estate will have a Japanese hill with a fountain. The sloping wall of Building Two – the smaller tower – will continue in a waterfalls, with cascading water falling into a pool strewn with rock pieces and glacier boulders. For the residents, this will be a veritable oasis in their own yard, an artful imitation of wild nature, with ducks and swans on the mirror of waters.

I love the shape and design, but what use is the tower for? Commerical, or residential? Are there a lot more towers going up for Moscow like this one?

The tallest tower fasade and design are both awful, can't say the complex is nice but the second tower looks pretty good

You like the shorter one?

Personally, I am not a big fan of the shorter one, but I really like the taller one.

The facade and the base of this tower are similar to the ones of the Cathedral Plaza Tower in Bucharest:

Yep... more pictures here... http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...&postcount=314
Those are from a website (it doesn't work right now) that promotes the actual plaza more than the building, so except the picture I posted above, there are no pics with the whole tower there. Which by the way, at 75m and 19 floors is much smaller than MosFilm .

Here's the render on the construction board:

...and a very recent video from youtube:


Hope nobody considers this post off-topic

As far as I understood both buildigns are under construction.
Probably the projects are independent. And the architects had not seen other projects

Yes... that's what I think too. I wasn't accusing or anything

Anyway... what I don't like about MosFilm is that it's a bit grayish.
But overall it's a nice project and I like that type of base with those beams... kind of like taking the base of the Seagram bulding to another level.

actually that tech data in the first post is outdated. both towers seems to be increased in plans. lower is already 37 storeys tall. according to latest sources the taller tower is going to be over 200m tall.

Yes.

The progress is a bit slow right now, but as soon as they finish working with this floor and the next, it should speed up.
