The Russia Tower though, honestly I doubt will get built.
I still remember in 2003 when sOmeOne was all excited about it, and I think that even in 2 years from now there still won't be anything new.
Mostly because they know they lost the WTB race to Dubai, unless if they drastically change the design and increase the height with at least another 200m. Which I doubt will happen.
But the place is high quality, especially Parcel 12, it is, IMO, the best of them all, even better than the Federation building. It is elegant, highly stylized, and just look at it, it's beautiful! And on top of that it's tall!

i'm really impressed with the height of these buildings, but IMO, some of them are just so cheap looking and ugly ;)
I really don't want but i will notice about your nationalityl. You are Pole. So it is not surprise what you think. But i really don't care.
CF by most of people considering as one of most beautiful tower in Europe, same goes to Parcel 12. All towers, except of City Hall, designed by famous architectural studios. Parcel 12 by SHCA. CC by nbbj. CF by Nps Tchoban Voss. Russia Tower by SOM. 17-18IBC will be possibly designed by SOM or Norman Foster etc.

Well il share my opinions about the towers from the renderings...

:master: absolutely outstanding
Complex Federation
Parcel 12

:eek:kay: excellent
Russia Tower (but not good enough for its size ;))
City of Capitals
Northern Tower
Naberezhnaya Tower ( will depend a lot on what glass is used, so could turn out bad)

:sleepy: not so great
Moscow City Transport Terminal. ( dont think the facade is really tasteful)
City Hall and City Duma. ( okay shape but overall not really pleasing)
Tower 2000 ( not so great but its decent and doesnt stand out, its just there )

phil, please read carefully comments to plots;)
oh, that makes more sense than cargo :doh:
Still, doesn't look very good to me, even if it's for transportation use, the office part could be better.
However the rest of the City is amazing, each individual tower is a masterpiece (unlike that 'tallest residential tower in europe' London claimed it has :p).
Except the Duma, I don't like that tower

hey I noticed the new tower on Parcel 14 in the international forums
:applause:
It's magnificient! I still hold Parcel 12 as my favorite of all, however the IBC is just keeping on adding great new towers.
BTW, should I sticky this thread instead of the Federation tower? Since this is an entire overview of the whole IBC. What do other mods think?
