well over half of pit already done.

Sep 3, 2004, 12:26 PM
Cool, this pit is MASSIVE! I know the building should start to rise some time in the beginnig of the new year, but do you know when they will finish digging and start the next phase? I can't wait to see it.

Sep 3, 2004, 1:40 PM

First pile were sunk yesterday. For a week earlier than planned.

To first pile puted message for future, which contain such next words "For XXI century this is big project, but we understand, that after a hundred of years 340 meters will be typical height. Children must going further than parents and apprentice must surpass their teachers. This is meaning of progress and meaning of life. We trust that we make a valuable contribution to developing of our country. We know that you will make more. Today we doing it. Tommorow it will be you."

Компания «Mirax-Сити» произвела забивку первой сваи уникального небоскреба «Федерация».

11 октября 2004 г. на территории Московского Международного Делового Центра «Москва-Сити» была забита первая свая самого высокого небоскреба Европы - башни «Федерация». На церемонии президент корпорации «Mirax Group» Сергей Полонский зачитал 'обращение к потомкам', которое потом было заложено в капсуле в фундамент здания.

'Дорогие друзья - жители будущего! Сегодня, 11 октября 2004 года в день начала строительства башни «Федерация» мы хотим обратиться к грядущим поколениям, считая, что являемся счастливыми свидетелями очень важного исторического события для Москвы, России, мира в целом.Мы гордимся тем, что не пройдет и 3 лет, как самое высокое здание Европы - башня «Федерация» станет украшением столицы. Для начала 21 века - это грандиозный проект, но мы, конечно, понимаем, что уже столетие спустя строительство здания высотой 340 метров будет обычным делом.Ведь дети должны идти дальше родителей, а ученики - превосходить учителей. Именно в этом смысл прогресса, смысл жизни.Мы верим, что внесли свою лепту в развитие нашей родины. Мы знаем, вы сделаете больше. Сегодня мы строим будущее, завтра его будете строить Вы!'

По традиции о каркас сваи была разбита бутылка шампанского - 'на прочность!', и ещё одна бутылка шампанского с автографом Президента МИРАКС Групп г-на Полонского была передана на хранения до 2007 года - даты окончания строительства объекта Федерация.

«Федерация» - центральный объект бизнес-центра «Москва-сити». Ее высота достигнет 340 метров. Завершение строительства запланировано на конец 2007 года.

here is article by ABC. from 20 october 2004.

"Federation" skyscraper is seen in this undated computer image of Moscow, Tuesday, Oct. 19, 2004. The first beam was put in place last week for the "Federation," a mixed residential and office project that will consist of two soaring glass-clad buildings linked to an even taller stiletto-like tower, due for completion in 2007. The taller of the two buildings is to top out at 340 meters (1,115 feet). (AP Photo/Mirax Group, HO)

Construction Begins on Moscow Skyscraper
Construction Begins on Moscow's Newest Attempt at Europe's Tallest Building

MOSCOW Oct 20, 2004 — Although still only in its infancy, construction has begun on the building that is to be Europe's tallest, a shiny younger brother to the dour Stalinist "Seven Sisters" skyscrapers that dominated Moscow's skyline for a half-century.

The first beam was put in place last week for the building called the "Federation," a mixed residential and office project that will consist of two soaring glass-clad buildings linked to an even taller stiletto-like tower, due for completion in 2007. From an observation deck there, visitors will be able to view a city being transformed by a booming economy and a taste for gigantism.

The taller of the two buildings is to top out at 1,115 feet, 249 feet higher than the continent's current champion Moscow's Triumph Palace apartment high-rise. In western Europe, the tallest building is Frankfurt's 850-foot Commerzbank.

With the two curved-wall buildings sloping away from the central tower, the $315 million complex will "call to mind the sails of a brigantine" ship its developer Mirax-City claims.

The popular weekly magazine Vsyo Yasno came up with a different, though equally gushing analogy: Don Quixote and Sancho Panza jointly holding a spear.

The comparison may reflect Moscow's long penchant for hugely ambitious projects that often go awry, a run of bad luck dating back to at least 1737 when the Tsar's Bell, the world's largest, cracked before it could ever be rung.

In the 1930s, dictator Josef Stalin conceived of what would have been the world's tallest building at the time, a Palace of the Soviets topped by a gargantuan statue of Vladimir Lenin that would have outstripped the Empire State Building by 112 feet.

Moscow's main cathedral was dynamited to make way for this pinnacle of official atheism, but the ground proved to be unstable and the grandiose project was abandoned in favor of a swimming pool which itself was destroyed after the fall of the Soviet Union and the cathedral was rebuilt.

In the 1960s, an entire neighborhood was razed to build the Rossiya Hotel, Europe's largest. It became notorious to visitors for its nightmarishly endless corridors and a seemingly limitless supply of vermin and prostitutes. It is now being prepared for destruction.

The 1,762-foot Ostankino television tower in northern Moscow, the world's tallest free-standing structure when it was built in 1967, was a popular tourist attraction until its image was literally blackened by a 26-hour inferno in 2000.

The city's arguably most successful soaring structures are the famed "Seven Sisters," the Gothic-influenced skyscrapers built in the 1940s and 50s. Although many outsiders find their pointy stone spires and turrets uncomfortably reminiscent of a wicked witch's castle, the look struck a chord with Russians. The Triumph Palace and several other residential high-rises that have sprouted in recent years follow the style closely.

"Federation" will be a comparative shrimp to the world's current tallest building: Taipei 101, at 1,670 feet, is nearly 50 percent higher. But Russians appear to be in the mood to play serious catch-up.

The Moscow building is "our late answer to New York's Twin Towers," Vsyo Yasno commented.

What does that mean ?
Does he imply that skyscrapers are built all around the world because of the fall of the twin towers ?

Good stuff. I anxiously await completion of this project.

Jan 20, 2005, 11:40 AM
Я слышал, что НИКОйл отказался финансировать проект. Как же они теперь без основного инвестора строить-то будут? Или нового нашли?

Еще слыхал, что какой-то еврейский диамантер (Лев Леваев, кажется) задумал небоскреб в Сити построить. Об этом проекте уже известно что-нибудь?

Jan 20, 2005, 12:14 PM
Да НИКойл больше не будет учавствовать как главный инвестор. Однко останется инвестором. Они купили какую то компанию - не помню какую, так что теперь не имеют бабок для инвестирования.
Миракс выпустит облигации на млрд баксов из которых большая часть пойдет на КФ. Кто является новым главным инвестором я не знаю. Но были какие то сообщения о Самсунге и КСК...

Что касательно Леваева, то он планирует вложить в небоскрёб на 14 участке МДЦ.

Jan 21, 2005, 1:40 PM

depend on russia tower and some other very tall projects

Feb 9, 2005, 6:26 PM
Russia Tower scaled down because of... terrorism right? Or is that just a rumor?

Either way CF is an excellent design, and would make a great tallest for Russia... if Russia Tower has been scaled down.

Feb 9, 2005, 8:59 PM
Russia Tower could be scalled down with 50% of possibility. But anyway it will be taller than CF. 398m vs 340m.

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.

Mar 15, 2005, 6:19 PM
Nice! That's some pretty good progress since the last update. It should start to rise pretty quickly now. As for those "Blue Man Group" construction guys, I'd imagine they'd have to be pretty tough to work in that snow. Much tougher than their stage version;)

Mar 17, 2005, 2:16 AM
Yea, remember the last time you shoveled snow? Now imagine if you had to build a skyscraper while shoveling it.

Mar 31, 2005, 6:20 PM
Starting to take shape! And a tower crane to boot! Coth, do you know if this will be a steal tower or concrete tower once they get above ground?

Apr 1, 2005, 7:28 PM
I bet it'll be a concrete tower. Concrete has been more and more widespread since 9.11.

Apr 1, 2005, 8:44 PM
I've noticed that too. I wonder if it's due to the rising cost of steel or improvements in concrete and the pumping technology. In any case, concrete is quickly becoming the new black:D

Apr 4, 2005, 4:47 PM
i think concrete.

well. 39 hours operation of flooding of foundation slab for tower B completed yesterday.

here is some official photos









Apr 18, 2005, 9:36 AM
some known plans.

The core of tower B begin to rise on 20 april and will reach 5th floor to the end of june (8 floors - from -4 to +4).
Works on pile's field of tower A (340m) begin in may.

Apr 18, 2005, 10:30 AM
Good to know.
The construction pictures are about to be very interesting.

Apr 18, 2005, 3:39 PM
things are built out of concrete more than steel because it is more fire proof, if the WTC had a concrete core, they would not have collapsed on 9/11.

Apr 18, 2005, 7:22 PM
Many more skyscrapers are being built with concrete than steel. A lot of it is due to safety concerns but the cost of steel is probably helping designers look at concrete as their choice for their structures.

Apr 19, 2005, 5:18 PM
i think it will be concrete core.

I find it intresting that they continue to work at night on the buildings in Moscow. Is that because of the cold winter, that they need to get as much done as possible when it is warm out?

May 6, 2005, 9:56 AM
The construction looks very similar to that of US7 and SWFC.

May 6, 2005, 12:29 PM
Well, I don't know about Tower B, but Tower A will be built by developer of SWFC.

May 6, 2005, 12:44 PM
It's a japanese firm, isn't it ?

May 7, 2005, 2:14 PM

May 7, 2005, 2:16 PM
China State Construction and Engineering Corporation or something like that. I don't know much abuot that. On emporis it is listed as construction company of SWFC. Not as developer, sorry.

May 7, 2005, 5:50 PM
Is Complex B the tallert one or the shorter one? if it's the shorter one, is the complex gonna rise like Nabereznaya Hotel - first ths shorter tower, then the taller one?

May 7, 2005, 10:31 PM
hehe. They called it Naberezhnaya in English because was beware of mixing those words up. There are Riverside Hotel in Red Hills and this Naberezhnaya Tower (Embankment Tower) in IBC. It is not hotel. It is office/residential complex.

The Tower B of Complex Federation is shorter.

I'd get offended or something except that I peronally know that the stereotype is so widespread that those who say it actually believe it. Seriously, the winters are barely colder than in the NYC. Trust me, Toronto winters can kick Moscow's winters' ass by coldness and the amount of snow.

It should start rising about a floor a week now. I have noticed that with most concrete skyscrapers.

May 24, 2005, 11:43 PM

and few new renderings, based on model






Jun 14, 2005, 5:52 PM
So it is above ground! As for the renderings, are they going for the glassier look or the stonier look for the base? It looks like they have two different renders from the same angles.

Jun 14, 2005, 8:01 PM
Sweet!!!! That looks so awesome. Great renders they really show how much of a pressence this building will have at street level.

Jun 14, 2005, 8:49 PM
Does the "spear" between the towers have any purpose other than being a spire/antenna? Does it have elevators or mechanical equipment?

Jun 14, 2005, 10:53 PM
there are few panoramic elevators supposed to be in spire

Jun 15, 2005, 1:47 PM
When is the other tower supposed to start?
