Moscow City is a ghost town on weekends. It also might very well be a ghost town on weekdays too – this skyscraper city known officially as the Moscow International Business Center has entered its third decade of development, and although a number of businesses have already moved in, the complex still has a “work in progress” feel to it. And once it’s finished, I reckon most of the activity will be still confined to the inside of a dozen or so of its shiny towers.
The towers, by the way, include Europe’s tallest building – Mercury City Tower, as well as the continent’s 3rd-, 4th-, 5th-, 9th– and soon to be 2nd-tallest buildings. Architecturally-speaking, my favorites are the double-helix Evolution Tower and the Mercury City Tower, which glows orange as if it’s reflecting sunset rays all day long.
