The 405-metre ‘One Tower’ is set to be
become the tallest residential building in Europe, the deputy mayor of Moscow
announced as he presented the ambitious project at the Moscow Urban Forum.

The skyscraper will
also be the tallest in the Moscow City International Business Center, topping
the city’s current tallest building, Federation Tower, by more than 30 metres.
It will be built in a unique geometric form and will be 101 floors tall with
three more underground floors.

“Today we’re presenting the project of the
tallest residential tower in Europe,” Moscow Deputy Mayor Marat Khusnullin said on Friday, adding that
pre-construction works have already started. The building is set to be
completed in 2024.

One Tower will have
unique functional, visual, and technological features, and will be unique both
in Russia and Europe, according to First Deputy General Director for
Development of ‘Mosinzhproekt’ Albert Suniev.

The author of the
project, architect Sergey Skuratov, likened the tower to a yacht canvas and an
airplane wing. He said the building will have the best view of Moscow’s

Moscow city
authorities approved construction of One Tower last year. More than 2,000
workers will work on the site. The completed skyscraper will offer its
residents and tenants a total area of 8,000 m2.

The Russian capital
is becoming rich in skyscrapers, and the newest addition is set to be the sixth
supertall building in the city.

While the new skyscraper will be the
tallest residential complex, it will not be the tallest building in Russia.
Last October, construction of the Lakhta Center in St. Petersburg was
completed. The 462-metre skyscraper will host the headquarters of Russian
energy giant Gazprom. The building is set to open its doors in a year, becoming
the tallest building in Europe.
