MOSCOW | City of Capitals | 984 FT / 300 M | 77 FLOORS | T/O

Just 300m so counts as a supertall (300m, not 1000ft so that we have only one definition of a supertall)

I don't understand what that means. Why wouldn't it be one or the other? Are we now saying 984 ft is the new supertall?

"Moscow" tower is the first Europe supertall and the tallest Europe building 302 m. high.
Now all 3 tallest Europe buildings are in Moscow .
Also, "Moscow" became the second residential building in the world after Australian Q1.

This tower is hideous...not elegant at all.

However, I'd give my left nut to have ANYTHING built this tall in Phoenix.

I suppose only having a crappy 70s era downtown would make me as grumpy as the poster above.

These towers, and the complex as a whole, are just awesome. Not hideous glitz like Dubai or mundane boxes like Toronto, just classy, boundary-pushing modern architecture. Props to Moscow.

I've got to admit that once it's complete , this new area of Moscow may well rival La Defense for not just tall buildings (which it already surpasses of course ) but as a work of boundary-pushing and beautiful architecture. To me it all looks fantastic.
