The Federation will rise over Europe

Video: mms://video.rfn.ru/rtr-vesti/37100.asf

The first concretes were flooded today to the foundation of a complex "Federation". The huge multilevel building promises to become the tallest building in Europe. The whole height of complex will reach 440 meters.

To the foundation of typical building is pawn a symbolical first stone, while to the foundation of a skyscraper which should rise on territory of the International Business Centre "Moscow-City", have been flooded first whole cubic metre of concrete.

The mixed-use office-recreation complex Federation should become the tallest building not only in Russia, but also in Europe. It will consist of two tower 87 and 57 storeys.

"The best minds of humanity, architects who is projected the tallest buildings over all world including Dubai, - the main architect of Moscow Alexander Kuzmin said. Is a mixed-use complex. At the beginning it was supposed to be simply office buildings. But owners have suggested to make the hotel on the top of tallest tower".


Special capsule with a message has been thrown, before powerful pumps have started flooding concrete to a timbering of the base of a skyscraper. It says that a complex "Federation" - the first grandiose project of XXI century, and expressing a hope, that for descendants there will be nothing unusual as they can surpass the predecessors in all.

The whole area of a complex will have 347 thousand square meters, the whole budget - 500 million us dollars. In the towers there will be offices, apartments, hotel, banks, supermarkets, restaurants and trading galleries. The building, according to builders, will have the highest degree of protection from cataclysm.

"We have cleaned undergound places of parking, therefore any variants with the machines filled by an explosive, basically are impossible. Our buildings are made of a monolith, instead of from metal. A limit of fire resistance of a monolith in 4-5 times more, than have metal. Therefore that accident which has taken place in New York, here is impossible", - the head of the construction company Sergey Polonsky asserts.

The complex "Federation" is already the fourth building of a business centre "Moscow-City". Completely it should be constructed by 2010. The height of the largest building of Russia and Europe will reach 440 m. It will built by Russian, Turkish and American companies. The opening of complex "Federation" is planned for 2007.
