The hight/length-ratio should remain between three and four, and yes, gigantic neo-clacicism'd way to go, timeless for sure.

Very good structure, all the posts here are pretty old, any news about this project, or is it dead for real?

So this is the end for the Crystal Island, why does mocow always have to cancel all the iconic structures!!! First, during Stalin's time the Palace of the Soviets, then the Russia Tower, and now this! If those three buildings where built moscow would be a true great city of the world!

With supertalls, the city is more interasting, theres more places to visit, and see. People would have said "Oh look, thats in Moscow I want to visit it, its amazing!" that would give the city a more futuristic and superior feeling, like it is somthing more than a largely populated city, and the capital of the largest country on Earth, already add supertalls+some more nice buildings, and you have the capital of the world! lol, just see:

And let this guy restore the USSR

They sure as hell don't hurt.

You only say this because you're city is severely comparatively lacking in skyscrapers.

my city is magnitudes more important than yours. if yours went down, no one outside of russia would really care. if my city went down, the world financial market would get its arse kicked. my city is the financial capital of the world.

London is without any doubt the financial and cultural capital of the world and really doesn't need any skyscrapers or supertalls to prove it, IMO

without any doubt
Not trying to start city v. city but I think there is plenty of doubt. Paris=cultural, New York=social, London=financial, Tokyo=economic

But I agree that building tall buildings is a pathetic way of becoming great or iconic. How many people choose Shenzhen over Florence? Frankfurt over Berlin? Busan over Rio de Janeiro? Tall buildings are oftentimes the byproduct of a great city's financial/economic might. But only a truly pathetic city would use tall buildings as proof of its greatness. New York or Hong Kong aren't great because they have tall buildings; the tall buildings are due to those cities economic might.

I heard that Russia had many projects were canceled because of the economic crisis (Russian Tower, Crystal Island, The federal island in Sochi, The orange building)?
I hope in future these projects will be continue development.

Thank you. Frankly these were real megalomaniac projects.
Keep in mind that in 2014 will be a revision of this project.


Russia tower :1,8 billion $
Crystal island : 4 billion $
Sochi island : 5 billion $
