I think this is a very good project, i like the design, it's like Ukraine's version of the Federation Tower ( larger though) , and i also like that it's mixed-use, it seems that there're many mixed-use projects being planned or constructed in EE (FT, This one, Crystal island, Kulczyk Tower etc...)
It would definitely be great if this tower (and other planned ones too) would be build, Kiev's skyline would become one of the best in Europe, possibly 2nd best after Moscow's.
Btw, the commieblocks in this pic: http://archunion.com.ua/souz/p-002/004.jpg look very good, are they new?

This is an ugly thing. Kiev deserves much better.
Btw, I'm sure it will not be built in near futetre - it's too expensive project.

Why it's too expensive? I think that this "gate" will be build but not too fast

Will this one building be considered Kiev's downtown or business district? It looks too lonely and the design isn't too great. Ukraine's infrastructure is also very different from this building. A nice way to welcome the world though, if Russia will let it.

I think it looks great, what would it be used for?

It also seems like it's in a great spot for transportation, with the large avenue and the river nearby.

Yes

It's called Тризуб (Tryzub) and litteraly means three-pronged or trident, which is our national coat of arms.
Although it's called trident now, it is diving hawk
It's the royal symbol of our ancient kings since the 9th century. The oldest archaeological finds of tryzub in the territory of Ukraine are dated by the 1st century, some tribes used it as a symbol of power.
