I thought this was a new project until I found out only the name was changed.

The project did not have any name before. Just the plot number.

The Oko



Description

The OKO is the new skyscraper by Capital Group in MIBC Moscow City, to begin the new chapter in Russian contemporary development. The OKO is performed by American architectural bureau SOM (Skidmore, Owings and Merrill) and consists of an 85-storey skyscraper and a 49-storey office tower that soar from a 7-story single transparent crystalline structure at the base of the complex embracing all the best for ultimate living, business and entertainment.

The OKO Project reflects the ideas of anticipating future, feeling the next-day dynamics and implementing it in the innovative architecture, progressive materials and ultimate technologies. The OKO Project creates the new vision of life and business — successful, stylish and independent. Furthermore, the OKO is the new reflection of the futuristic concept, with its cult of progress and technological genius. A century later, the ideas of transition from present into future get embodied in the OKO Project, a piece of development art.

400+ move-in-ready residential apartments with designer interiors with breathtaking views of the Moskva River, the Kremlin and the White House, Sparrow Hills (Vorobyovy Gory) and the skyscrapers of Moscow City, modern A class business centre, progressive engineer solutions and security systems, 24/7 services from a world-class 5* hotel, a fitness center, SPA, outdoor tennis courts, private cinema hall, conference hall, restaurants and bars ― the OKO offers the very best for maximum comfort and activity any time, day or night.

Oko means eye? So why not call this super-tall the "Eye"? Since in that image the text is all in Cyrillic and not English.

Yesterday we called the tower The Eye.
But on the official page (in English) they decided to transliterate not to translate. So now it is Oko in both languages, in Russian and in English. http://www.capitalgroup.ru/en/object...e/description/

The name of this building is in Serbian.
The "eye" in the Serbian says "oko".
