Moscow Set to Build 200 Skyscrapers

Moscow’s landscape is set to change even more dramatically over the next few years after the city government announced plans to build around 200 new skyscrapers in the capital by 2015.

The local government will designate 60 new zones around the city where these skyscrapers will be built, the head of the city’s construction department, Vladimir Resin, told journalists at a real estate investment forum Friday.

All the buildings, which will come under the city administration’s “New Moscow Ring” project, will be over 30 stories high and more likely than not will be constructed on the edge of town, Resin said.

“The new high-rise buildings will surely change the anonymous face of the city’s outskirts and become an idiosyncratic architectural focus,” he said.
