Building: Federation Tower
Location: Moscow, Russia
Completion: 2013 (expected)
Owner: Mirax Group

AE Interests: This 1660 foot, multi-use complex will consist of two towers with a spire between them and house hotel suites, restaurants, cafes and apartments. The concrete being used for this structure is grade B90 which is twice as strong as traditional mix designs and should withstand a direct impact from an aircraft. The central spire will house two high-speed elevators with external glazing as well as an observation deck.
