Moscow planning to build world's highest skyscraper

The world's highest skyscraper, which is planned to be build in Moscow, will have 116 floors, Moscow architecture, construction and development department head Vladimir Resin declared on Echo of Moscow radio. He specified that the building would be 640 meters high.

He also mentioned that the program New Ring envisaged the construction of 60 high buildings of more than 35 floors. He noted that the construction of skyscrapers was a necessity for Moscow since there was no free area in the city. He added that there were 23 square meters of residential floor space per person in Moscow while in Europe it was about 50 to 70 square meters.

Firms that have international licenses for such activities will develop projects on constructing skyscrapers, he stressed.
