On April 29, 2013 the closed competition of architectural concepts of the multipurpose complex “Empire Tower” as a part of the international business center “Moscow City” summed up the results. The jury awarded a victory to UNK project which now got the right to sign the contract with the customer for further projecting of an object.
Architects developed the concept of the building reminding the cruise ship on the one hand, and with another — the triumphal arch denoting the main entrance from Krasnopresnenskaya Embankment in City. The project provides placement of medical, trading and office spaces, a parking on 815 parking places and open public spaces. According to jury, this decision allows to create a dynamic architectural image especially taking into account commercial “business” purpose of the building.
“In finishing glass and stone pitching will be used, – Yuliy Borisov says, – these materials will give the harmony to new object with the Moscow City complex. The lower part of the building will be heavier, and to the top it will be dissolving in air”.
The chief architect of Moscow Sergey Kuznetsov hopes that the new building will increase quality of building of “Moscow City”. “The Moscow city complex has to receive good, various architecture”, – he emphasized.
