Construction work on the international business complex Moscow City is expected to be complete by 2007. As a Rosbalt correspondent was informed by the press office of the Moscow administration, the site has been allocated and some parts of the complex are already under construction. The aquapark and the hotel, for example, are both under construction and work will begin on three other facilities during the autumn of 2003. The other buildings will be built over the next four years. There are still plans to build the Russia tower although there is still no information about who may invest in the tower's construction. The whole construction project will not only involve architects from Moscow and other areas of Russia but also England, the US, Holland, Germany and Italy.
