Yeah, no skyscraper basement would be that deep. People would think they've opened up a mine in the city

The London Shard, while technically a supertall doesn't have occupied space much past 800 or 245 meters so these would be the first in that category too.

Yes, tallest twins in Europe...

Also would be 6th twins in the world after Petronas Towers, Huaguoyuan Towers, JW Marriott Marquis, Orchid Crown and Orchid Heights Towers.

Great addition to the skyline, though it will be even more unbalanced than now....

I don't know why 'Tallest in Europe, outside of Russia' is said so much. Russia's not an equal enough part of Europe or something?

I think this is more "tallest twins in the traditionally christian western Europe".

Because it will be the tallest in Europe, outside of Russia. He said that because if he only said: Tallest in Europe. Everyone will say: Wrong, in Russia there are taller buildings.

I dont see this tower in nearly future, because EU sanctions to Russia. Emin Iskenderov is a member of the Economic Council under the Ambassador of the Russian Federation in France.

Because for a lot of Europeans (like me), Russia isn't a European country. 75% of Russia is in Asian continent.

50% Frenchmans are descendants of non european immigrants (Algerians, Moroccans and other Africans). Modern France culture is afro-european culture.

Africans





Europeans

Maybe, but for even more Europeans (like me), Russia is clearly a European country. (74% of the Russian population live in the European part of Russia i.e. west of Urals)

Russia and the overwhelming majority of Russians are, Europeans by culture, Europeans by religion, Europeans by language, Europeans by ethnicity, and so on... So, isn't that enough to be truly and definitely European? Don't you think?

Yeah, yeah! ()
I think you don't know France nor the French people very well dear. I mean there is a whole country outside some 'multiethnic' Paris suburbs, and a whole people outside the France football or basketball team.

The last data about the French population said that approx. 82-85% of us are ethnically white/Europeans (and even up to 90-92% if we include the French of North African and Middle Eastern origins who are aslo ethnically white for most of them e.g. Turks, Lebanese, Tunisians, Algerians, Sephardi Jews, etc).



Anyway, back to those twin towers.

It is no matters who we are. Multiethnic societes like USA, London, Paris... is BEST. Mix of people around world with incredible culture, music, beauty, cuisine... with cosmopolitan atmosfere.

Back to Towers.
