Moscow skyscraper designed for attacks
Sunday, July 17, 2005; Posted: 9:48 a.m. EDT (13:48 GMT)
http://www.cnn.com/2005/BUSINESS/07/17/moscow.tower.ap/

MOSCOW, Russia (AP) -- The developer for a skyscraper billed as Europe's tallest says that state-of-the-art construction and design methods will make it safe from plane attacks similar to those that destroyed the World Trade Center in New York.

The futuristic, glass-clad Federation Tower will house offices, a hotel and luxury apartments along the Moscow river in a western region of the Russian capital.

http://i.a.cnn.net/cnn/2005/BUSINESS/07/17/moscow.tower.ap/story.vert.fed.tower.jpg
Federation Tower is representative of the construction boom in Moscow.

Its twin, sail-like towers -- the tallest of which will be 340 meters -- are attached to a central 430-meter stiletto-like spire.

In western Europe, the tallest building is Frankfurt's 260-meter Commerzbank tower.

http://i.a.cnn.net/cnn/2005/BUSINESS/07/17/moscow.tower.ap/story.vert.fed.tower3.jpg
At present the tallest building is Frankfurt's Commerzbank tower.

"The pillars would cut through the plane, and that is all," said Sergei Polonsky, president of Mirax Group, describing the building's resilience to a September 11-style attack.

"Regardless of how many planes hit it, it won't fall down," he said, standing in the shadow of one of the partially completed, reinforced concrete pillars ringing the perimeter of tower B, the smaller of the two.

A recent event saw the official presentation of the big name contractors that will work on the Federation project by Mirax.

They include construction manager Turner Construction, a division of the New York headquartered high-rise construction specialists, structural engineers Thornton-Tomasetti, ThyssenKrupp AG's elevators division and Liebherr, who will be providing cranes.

Mirax have worked on a number of upscale apartment and office projects in Moscow.

Federation Tower is emblematic of the construction boom, which has transformed Moscow's skyline in recent years and filled the city's streets with the rumble of building work.

The skyscraper will form the focal point of the sprawling Moscow City development -- a glass and steel assembly of high-rises-in-the-making, designed as Moscow's answer to Wall Street or the City of London.

http://i.a.cnn.net/cnn/2005/BUSINESS/07/17/moscow.tower.ap/story.vert.fed.tower2.jpg
The tower will be 420 meters high and the tallest building in Europe.

Sergey Tchoban, from architects Tchoban Voss, said that while it may contrast with Moscow's older buildings, the Federation project would blend in with the capital's eclectic style.

"Moscow is a city of silhouettes ... we hope it will complement and enrich the structure of the city's silhouette," Tchoban said.

But for now it's a silhouette in the making -- tower B is just two floors high and swarming with Turkish and Chinese builders.

So far Mirax Group are not saying how much of the building's office space is taken, but Polonsky was confident that as the biggest building in the capital, they would not need to take out ads in the newspapers.

there are many sources with different heights. the official site says abou 420 meters.

430m was wrote by AP, i suppose, while titles for pictures was added by CNN i think...

The rebar sticking out of the bottom floorplates suggests that those floors will continue outward, probably connecting with the other tower. Coth, will those be retail or parking floors underground?

Moscow to join tallest tower club

A Chinese construction firm has signed a deal to build an 87-storey tower in Moscow, which the developers say will be the tallest in Europe.

A Turkish firm - Ant Yapi - is already building the foundations for the $530m (£305m) Federation Complex.

The tower will soar to 340 metres (1,115 feet), attached to a stiletto-like central spire. There will be a neighbouring 53-storey tower.

The complex will house offices, luxury flats, a hotel and leisure facilities.

The developer, Russia's Mirax Group, says the glass-clad towers will have state-of-the-art design features which will protect them against any 9/11-style terrorist attack.

"Regardless of how many planes hit it, it won't fall down," said Mirax president Sergei Polonsky, quoted by the Associated Press.

Mirax signed a construction contract in Beijing on Monday with the Chinese Engineering Construction Corporation. The work is expected to take two years, Itar-Tass news agency reports.

The skyscraper was designed by German architects Peter Schweger and Sergei Tchoban.

They say the structure will be fire-resistant for 10 hours.

Currently the tallest building in Europe is Frankfurt's 260-metre Commerzbank tower.

Funding for the project came from Vneshtorgbank, which will occupy 30 storeys of the tallest skyscraper. Ten other major Russian firms will also have offices in the building, Russia's RIA Novosti news agency reports.

The Hyatt hotel chain plans to turn 44 floors into a five-star hotel.

Hi coth.

In my opinion, this is the best looking tower out of all the 5 supertalls currently under construction. Is there any new photos of the building? I noticed the last photo was over two weeks old.

Did the construction slow down due to the weather (as well as the updates)?

I like that they number the floors for all to see. makes it easy to see they are working on the 27th floor.

GREAT UPDATES.

Do you think the roof collapse today in Moscow will slow down construction?

Wasn't the roof collapse on a market? From my experience in other european cities, the markets are usually just thrown together, and probably not really constructed to any kind of a code, and are put up by the people that run the market. I would say its a completely different situation.

Coth, you constantly post some of the best supertall pics (AND information) on the web. Thank you very much for your efforts.

Are you going to start visiting the Russia Tower site as well?

BTW, is FT considered to be one building or two?

It's not different site. It will be between FederationTower and Northern Tower (on right of oleg's photo).

FT is two towers on one podium. Spire is also considering as tower C.

30!!! That's half way!

I'm really looking forward to see the second tower start to rise and to see them put that spire up in the middle. I wonder how long that thing will take?

Coth,

A couple questions:

1. In the render highlighted in red, there seems to be the part of the building that goes inside the structure (recessed). I don't see it being made into the frame structure in the pic you just posted. I am assuming that the podium shown is for tower C, so this is the correct side. I am sure you posted pics of all 3 sides of the building, but all sides are smooth with no recess. Did they change plans and decide to make it smooth all around? The render shows walkways inside the recess.

2. The green box shows an opening. Is this the walkway or mount to tower C?

that rendering is not final. i posted already in thread more closer look to final.

some things where improved from this rendering. no stone in podium. plus glass color still unknown.

facing should begin soon. 4 levels tall chinese glass panels will be installed from level 11 and upper.
