Moscow Federation Tower

Moscow Federation Tower

Construction began today in Moscow on the site of what is to become the tallest European skyscraper.

The Federation Complex will include two towers, measuring 340 and 240 meters respectively, and will itself be part of “Moscow-City” - a gargantuan multi-building project that has been under development for over a decade now. The possibility that the new towers (and not the Kremlin) may soon become the standard postcard view of Moscow is bothering many. Not us.
