This project is part of the thriving Moscow City mixed-use district—centrally located within the sprawling Russian metropolis—the design of which is similar to London’s Canary Wharf and Paris’s La Défense. An 85-story skyscraper and a 49-story office tower soar from a 7-story transparent crystalline base, gradually tapering away from each other as they rise. Designed by US-based architectural and engineering firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill—renowned for its iconic towers, including Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building—the OKO Tower complex laid the groundwork for a new era in contemporary Russian development. At 1,150 feet high, and with a total area of 4,300,000 square feet, the OKO South Tower is not only the largest skyscraper in Moscow, but also the highest residential tower in Europe. The complex also has the biggest parking area in Moscow, with 15 levels for 3,500 parking spaces.
Residential and office lobbies have elegant interiors by Italy-based designer Massimo Iosa Ghini. With leading engineering solutions and security systems, 24/7 services, restaurants and bars, a private cinema hall, a luxurious spa and fitness center, and a private landscaped park, OKO Tower offers the ultimate in comfort and activity. The key-ready residential apartments boast designer interiors and stunning panoramic views of the Moskva River, the Vorobyovy Gory (Sparrow Hills) park, the Kremlin and the skyscrapers of Moscow City.
