One Tower residential skyscraper (405 m) will be built in the Russian capital within five years and will become the tallest residential high-rise in Europe. Sixty meters taller, the building will beat the record of the Federation Tower located nearby in the Moscow City Business Center. 

It is estimated that the construction project will receive RUR 30 bln ($470 mln) in investments. The skyscraper will be built by Mosinzhproyekt, a company owned by the regional government, says Deputy Mayor Marat Khusnullin.

One Tower will be designed as a distorted prism and have over 100 floors. More than 2,000 people will be involved in the construction project.

Aside from residential apartments, the high-rise will take in offices, cafes and restaurants, clubs and gyms. An observation deck will be built on the 101st floor. The building will be connected to the surrounding skyscrapers by overground and underground passageways. The construction site is being prepared for construction works.
