Norman Foster's tower in Moscow.
Norman Foster's design for a 118-story, 600-meter, or about 2,000-foot, skyscraper that would tower over Moscow and be Europe's tallest building has won the endorsement of Moscow's mayor, The Times of London reported.
The mayor, Yuri Luzhkov, approved the plan for the Moscow City Tower after a meeting last week with Foster, who said he expected construction of his "vertical city" to start within 18 months. A Moscow City Hall spokesman said the municipal government would make a final decision on the project after the plans were reviewed next month by the Culture Commission. Rising on the banks of the Moscow River near the Kremlin, the tower, with a projected cost of $1.5 billion, would have nine underground floors of parking and shopping space, a public ice rink, a hotel, 24 floors of apartments and offices and, on its top, an observation deck with cafés and bars.
