Rotating tower l 70 fl l 400m
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.
