About Capital City Moscow Tower

Capital City is comprised of two residential towers, individually named after two major Russian cities, Moscow Tower (the taller of the pair) and St. Petersburg Tower. A 17-story business center is housed in the complex. The towers’ form creates the visual effect of a series of stacked boxes offset from one another. This effect is achieved through a slight cantilever on only two façades of each vertical segment, and thus does not compromise the continuity of the towers’ main vertical structure. A mechanical floor demarcates each 15-floor segment and integrates the structural system. The Moscow Tower contains five such segments while the St. Petersburg Tower contains four.

Providing large, open living spaces with full-height glazing led to a structural solution that combines a minimal building core with a mega-column structure to achieve enhanced structural efficiency. Eight mega-columns carry loads for each tower segment. At each mechanical floor, the vertical load is transferred from the corner and central columns to the mega-columns through a perimeter belt truss.
