MOSCOW | Rotating Skyscraper | 400m | 1312ft | 70 fl | Canceled



http://www.dynamicarchitecture.net/moscow.html

Moscow will have its Rotating Skyscraper
to become the new icon of the Russian capital.


According to the Chairman of the MIRAX GROUP Sergey Polonsky, “the brightest feature of the building will be rotation of most floors around the central core, irrespective of the movement of other floors. Thus, floors will not be identical, which will allow the building to change the form constantly. Another characteristic feature of the building will be the system of connection of pipelines: all engineering systems of the central core will be connected to the rotating parts of floors, which will allow to use water, electricity, heating and the sewerage in the apartments in a habitual mode. The method of construction will be also unique: the central core will be poured in-place, and the floors will be made section by section at a factory and fastened to the core when assembled, with all MEP systems and, probably, even furniture”. "After initial estimates, this method will allow us to reduce the time of construction minimum to 30 %, and besides, to essentially lower the site pollution during construction", - adds the Russian project manager.

This tower will have 70 stories, 400 Mt high. (1312 ft).
The developer is the international Moscow based, MIRAX GROUP Company headed by Mr. Sergei Polonsky.
The volume of investments into the tower construction is going to exceed $400 million.
The total area of the tower will be almost 110,000SM (1184000SF) with offices and retail premises as well as apartments and penthouses.
The project, to be realized in the new area of Moscow City within the limits of the third transport ring, is now in the stage of advanced design and coordination.
The beginning of construction is planned for the end of the year, and the commissioning of the tower into operation will be for 2010.

It's not proposed yet. Mayor said few days ago - "never heard of it, we were never discussing it". I'm not saying it won't be built - i'm just saying the title is wrong. No one picture shows correct position. First is in botanic garden, second is on a site of Chigirinsky's Russian Land (Zaryad'ye redevelopment by Norman Foster). It most probably will be located on a place of recently refused by Luzhkov 54 story tall Mirax egg building (few meters to right of first picture) or on an opposite side of upper Kutuzov motorway in the Big City.

And the Mirax egg was rejected because according to Luzhkov Moscow-city can not afford more office space (because of traffic jams)

Corporation MIRAX GROUP is to realize in Moscow a unique project Rotating Tower where each floor will rotate around of the central core of the building, irrespective of other floors.

The corporation has signed a corresponding agreement with architect David Fisher who owns the patent for the project concept. The volume of investments into the tower construction is going to exceed $400 million.

The agreement between MIRAX GROUP and president of Dynamic Architecture David Fisher was signed on July 12, this year. At the beginning of August, the initial payment was made, however, the partners do not want to disclose the cost of the contract. According to the contract, MIRAX GROUP has received exclusive rights for realization of the Rotating Tower concept in the territories of Moscow and St.-Petersburg.

The project is now in the stage of coordination, but it is already known that the total area of the tower will make almost 130 thousand sq. m., and it will have over 60 floors: there will be offices and retail premises on the ground floors while other areas will be for apartments.

According to Chairman of the MIRAX GROUP Board of Directors Sergey Polonsky, the brightest feature of the building will be rotation of most floors around the central core, irrespective of the movement of other floors. Thus, floors will not be identical, which will allow the building to change the form constantly. Another characteristic feature of the building will be the system of connection of pipelines: all engineering systems of the central core will be connected to the rotating parts of floors, which will allow to use water, electricity, heating and the sewerage in the apartments in a habitual mode. The method of construction will be also unique: the central core will be poured in-place, and the floors will be made section by section at a factory and fastened to the core when assembled, with all MEP systems and, probably, even furniture. "After initial estimates, this method will allow us to reduce the time of construction minimum to 30 %, and besides, to essentially lower the site pollution during construction", - adds project head Vladimir Antimonov.

"Now we are negotiating at once several land areas within the limits of the third transport ring, in one of which we are going to realize this project,” - Sergey Polonsky says. By his estimate, the construction working costs of the rotating part of the tower will reach $4 thousand for a square meter, and the total amount of investments into the project will exceed $400 million. The beginning of construction is planned for the end of 2008, and the commissioning of the tower into operation – for the first half of 2011.

So, it is almost impossible that the building's curves (shown on all pics) will be so smooth.

You know I just realized that the renders aren't very realistic. If tenants are able to control the position of there villas independently then the corners of the levels wouldn't be all lined up all orderly like in the render. wouldn't it be more random.
