Grand Tower Moscow is a highrise office tower in Moscow to be constructed on top of an already existing basement structure. It consists of a podium building and a slender twin tower sitting on top of it. The podium building reaches over the complete foot print of the as-built basement structure and is about 65 m high. The tower above will have a curved shape with overall dimensions of approximately 75 m x 96 m.
The twin towers will be coupled only by light bridges and bracings in individual stories. The building will have a total height above ground of 275 m and 283.5 m respectively (including the wind screen on top of the buildings). There are 50 storeys, twelve of which are double-height storeys. While the tower itself provides office space, the podium offers several above-ground parking levels, a spa area, a restaurant/canteen, retail and a conference area including a banquet hall.
