“The Golden Skyscraper”, constructed in 2013, is the tallest building in Europe. It is 339 metres in height.
The panel of experts of the international “Icons of Russia” project declared the Mercury City tower the symbol of Russia, 2014.
Creators of the project are the Russian architect Mikhail Posokhin and the American high-rise construction expert Frank Williams. The lower floors have been set aside for office space and retail areas, and the 43rd to 75th floors for luxury class apartments complete with designer interiors and hotel service.
The building has an overall area of 173,960 sq. m. There are 75 storeys above ground level and five storeys below it, incorporating restaurants, underground parking, and a club floor. All this goes into making Mercury City — above which there are only stars.
