Not a bad design. But it looks a little dated. It looks like an early 80's design to me. But as with all of the projects going in Moscow. It will probably look better in reality than it does in the model/rendering.

I'm confused??? Looks like the same Foster project, except at half the height, 332m vs. 600m. Same pattern on the cross bracing and everything. Did the Foster project get cancelled and this tower is replacing it?

You are probably confused... what is in the middle of the 3D model is still the 600 m Foster project, the Mercury tower is the one to the left of it, and it looks like this:

here is scan from arx04 magazine. they have 29 pages related to moscow ibc in this edition with many renderings and plans. few of them scanned and posted in russian section of ssc.

so here is scan of mercury city tower. they say it's 332 meters by roof and 380 meters by spire!

I like super-fast constructions.

This design looks really nice, but they should release other renderings from different angles.

The great news is that the tower is already under construction. I hate a long wait after I've seen a nice design.
