City Palace Tower

  • Location  Moscow, Russia
  • Sector  Commercial, Landscape
  • Size  169,000 m²
  • Status  Completed

The City Palace Tower is the latest addition to ‘Moscow-City‘, a major initiative by the Russian capital to create a central business district on a former industrial zone, three miles from the Kremlin. The sensual, organic form of the building, which was designed by RMJM in collaboration with Scottish artist Karen Forbes, mixes passion and drama with a conventional square footprint ideal for offices and other commercial uses.

The twisting tower provides approximately 85,000 m² of retail and leisure facilities and 85,000 m² of offices and public functions, including a registry office – indeed the inclusion of the registry office for civil marriages inspired the architect-artist team for the conceptual form of the building.
