Mercury City: the tallest building in Moscow
In our time, construction of high-rise buildings isnecessity. More and more cities become cities, the area of which does not allow them to accommodate all residents and visitors. For this reason, the buildings began to be erected higher and higher. Earlier the house in height in 15 floors was a rarity. Many were afraid to live on its last floors. Today, such houses no longer surprise anyone.
In most cases, buildings of enormous heightthey are built not so much from the need to provide a living space to those in need, but from the desire to show their skills and create a new architectural masterpiece that will adorn the city.
Olympus of the Russian capital
The tallest building in Moscow is Mercury CityTower "- has 75 floors. This is a majestic building, the construction of which took six years and the cost of which amounted to more than 400 million rubles. The height of the Mercury City Tower is 338 meters. When planning the construction of the tallest building in Moscow was to be a height of 380 meters, but because of the limited resources had to change the design decision.
The Conquest of Europe
"Mercury City" was awarded the title "Highestbuilding of Europe ". It surpassed such giants as The Shard in the UK, Sapphire in Istanbul, Commerzbank Tower in Frankfurt and many other majestic buildings in the countries of the European region.
The tallest building in Moscow is functionalis divided into residential areas and shopping and entertainment sections. From the forty-second floor, luxury apartments start, and the last floors are provided without finishing, but with an expanded area, modern communications and excellent views of the city. The complex has five underground floors, one of which is a parking lot.
The capital of the Russian Federation is replete with high-altitudevisually comparing which it is difficult to determine the tallest building. Moscow is very responsible for the safety and reliability of buildings. It is known that our capital attracts a lot of attention not only the inhabitants of Russia, but the whole world. For this reason, there is no question of whether the residential premises that will provide the tallest building in Moscow will be in demand. Some believe that only foreign businessmen, mainly from Japan and the People's Republic of China, would like to settle on the upper floors of Mercury City, and citizens of the Russian Federation will prefer premises that are not so high. These are only assumptions, but if we talk about real facts, then we can say that LLC "Sberbank Capital" already has the right to a part of residential apartments.
Architects hope that the largest building inMoscow will be able to impress its guests not only with external dimensions, but also with an internal device, comfort and modern design solutions. The project was jointly worked out by Russian and American experts who perfectly managed to connect the design solutions and preferences of different cultures. The result of this work has surpassed all expectations.
