Always wondered this, just like in some locations in China where the construction site is surrounded by undeveloped grass/dirt lots. How did the real estate market and financing of a city go from no/few highrises to supporting a monster??

It looks so lonely out on its pier. I think this would look great in a city like San Francisco.

This is the strangest most out of place skyscraper, but I like it. Tallest in Europe I would imagine right?

That is true; furthermore, the area of Russia that is considered to be in Europe is many times larger than scores of fully European countries. Take that and smoke it in your pipes. Then you have a area that you can consider Eurasian. On top of all this you're going to need to include a tiny strip of land that is purely Asian. Yes, Russian geography is vast, there's an astounding variety of land types​. Only the continent of Africa compares in this regard; however, Africa is a continent and Russia is a country. Geographically, I often think that it can only be accurate​ly described with the word, GARGANTUAN. ������

Yeah, actually, it is. At least the part where the vast majority of the population lives.
