The Moscow IBC is expected to become the first zone in Russia to combine business activity, living space and entertainment in one single development. The Moscow government first conceived the project in 1992. An estimated 250,000 – 300,000 people will be working in, living in, or visiting the complex at any given time.
Europe’s tallest building Mercury City Tower is built in Moscow IBC. The complex also includes third-tallest, fourth-tallest, fifth-tallest and ninth-tallest buildings in Europe. The Federation Tower is currently under construction, and is going to be the next tallest building in Europe, even taller than Mercury City Tower, in 2015.
