World’s Biggest Building Coming to Moscow: Crystal Island

Moscow’s rapidly growing skyline will soon feature an eye-popping new addition: Crystal Island, which will be the world’s biggest building when completed. Sir Norman Foster’s mountainous 27 million square feet (~2,5miljoen m²) spiraling “city within a building” will cost $4 billion (4 miljard dollar=2,7miljard euro) and it is scheduled to be built within next 5 years.

The Crystal Island will be Lord Foster’s second large scale project in the Russian capital, and his third new building design that resembles a volcano (we’re talking about his two mountainous buildings in Astana, Kazakstan). Although many people are calling this design the ‘Christmas Tree’ of Moscow - we can’t help but be reminded of the utopian and also rather volcanic X-Seed 4000 design for Tokyo. Unlike that pipe-dream project, however, Foster has a track record of getting buildings built, so the likelihood is high that we will see this striking structure towering over the Kremlin within 5 years time.

The statistics for the project are absolutely staggering; floor area alone will be four times the size of Pentagon in Washington DC. The incredible 1500 ft (~450m). tall multi use structure will feature 900 apartments, 3000 hotel rooms, an international school for 500 students, cinemas, a theater, sports complex and much more. There will also be a 16,500 space underground parking lot for all the visitors. The Crystal Island visitors will be able to enjoy panoramic views of Moscow on the viewing platforms located 980 ft.(~300m) above ground.

And as we’d expect from Foster + Partners, this soon-to-be world’s biggest building will also incorporate a number of sustainable design features into the overall scheme. The exterior facade will be solar responsive and will include solar panels which, along with wind turbines, will generate electricity for the huge tower. Natural ventilation will be provided thanks to numerous strategically placed large atriums. The internal environment will also have dynamic enclosure panels slotted into the structural framing that will allow daylight to penetrate deep into the heart of the structure; the panels will also be controlled to modify temperature inside the building – closed in winter for extra warmth and opened in summer to allow natural ventilation. Energy management is at the heart of this structure, several on-site renewable and low-carbon energy generation projects are planned.

MOSCOW | MosFilm Tower | 203m | 54 fl | 131m | 34 fl |


Crystal Island location on Moscow map, IBC shown as "city"



******************************************************



Now, Mosfilm Tower

The tower is located on Pyrieva str. 2., Moscow South-West.
In Russian it is called 'Dom na Mosfilmovskoj'

Don-Stroi company is building the tower.

2 residential towers
- 203 m 54 floors
- 131 m 34 floors

This estate, is situated in the western part of the capital, in the Mosfilmovskaya Street area on the Vorobyovy Hills. The estate includes two high-rise buildings connected between themselves by parallel low-level sections.
The Building One is shaped as a rectangular helical tower. The core of the building consists of circular-shaped elevator halls on each level that function as a single upright threaded rod holding the composition of the building. The twisted building has its vertical dynamics, its architectural solution uses an original rhythm of window panes: the higher from the ground level, the larger the area of window panes. The facade is decorated with special plates of light-toned natural stone.
The second – the lower – high-rise building, uses several types of special glass: transparent, matte, and variously shaded.
The parallel sections connecting the two high-rise buildings face each other with their passage galleries of glass.

The spacious multi-lighted atrium lobby of the central entrance is decorated with natural rock of warm color, and paneled with honey-waxed wood. This area houses mini-cafes, a bathing room for pets, and a large 90-seat cafe. The door on the right-hand side of the entrance hall leads to the commercial and recreation complex.

The construction plan provides for a real English-style garden with large-size trees such as maples, limes, willows, firs and rowans. English lawns alternate with Moresque lawns that require no mowing. Rye, wheat, and flax are planted in patches as small islands. Part of the premises will be decorated with red plants, flowers, and shrubs.
The main square of the residential estate will have a Japanese hill with a fountain. The sloping wall of Building Two – the smaller tower – will continue in a waterfalls, with cascading water falling into a pool strewn with rock pieces and glacier boulders. For the residents, this will be a veritable oasis in their own yard, an artful imitation of wild nature, with ducks and swans on the mirror of waters.

Geez you guys are getting some impressive buildings in Moscow. I would venture to say that Moscow will have one of the most dynamic and impressive skylines in the world once there's enough of them built to symbolize Moscow (as opposed to now where people think of old Stalinist era buildings)

Is Moscow's infrastructure even able to handle all of these projects. From what I've heard it is already really strained.

Are there any plans for new subway lines as well?

Yes R@ptor, they are building metro now at the rate of about 10-15 km of new lines per year and are promising to acclerate to about 30 km/per year in a few years

Transit insfrastructure is strained for several reasons that are being addressed after years of inactivity.

1. After Soviet Union collaps, during hyperinflation of late 80s early 90s - there was no way to finance big projects such as metro construction. Metro construction has been frozen and cost milliions of $$ to just keep the unfinished lines in frozen state.

This situation is reversed now; there are plans to double the length of Moscow metro lines from about 300 km now to 600-650 km by 2025.

2. Moscow has never had a business district, so offices are currently dispersed all over the center of the city (mostly within Garden Ring). Obviously, a lot of rush hour traffic is heading into the center of the city causing jams.

This situation is being addressed by construction of IBC and other business districts as the one shown above. These scraper clusters are located on or outside third transport ring (several km outside the Garden Ring). As the new office buildings are completed, businesses will be forced out of the historic center. The density of traffic in the city center should be reduced.

3. When few people had cars and most used public transit, the surface modes of transit such as busses and trolley busses performed much better than now. Today, you can sit in a trafiic jam on a trolley-bus just as frustrated as in cars sorrounding it.

This will addressed by construction of high-speed light rail which does not share the road with cars and is grade-separated at most critical intersections. Monorail line will be exteneded.

4. The road infrastructure is being improved as well.

So, it is not all pink and rosy, and there are big problems, but they are working on it.

I like the Metropolia project, a cluster on its own.
Often the new buildings are really huge, something not to be seen out of Moscow, is there a reason to built such buildings ?

1. not sure what you mean when you say "not to be seen out of Moscow", plenty of supertalls are being built all over the world
Oh, I guess you mean not Europe.

2. the reasons for building supertalls in Moscow are the same as anywhere else in the world - they are a statement of might and power, they attract attention, become focal point of a skyline , bring visibility to the city and occupants of the building; become iconic images of the place, i.e. they satisfy ego

Yeah, by 2106 Earth will have two Moons and we will travel there by a taxi cab fom Moscow. And by 2062 Eurasia Tower will be cut in half and converted to a golf course... or so Mirax wishes.

My honest projection is that Eurasia Tower will top out before Federation Tower is completed (including the spire).
