Edelweiss (Russian: Эдельвейс) is a 43-story residential high-rise in Moscow, completed in 2003. It stands 157 m (515 ft) tall with a spire extending an additional 19 m (62 ft). The building was designed to be a companion for the Seven Sisters and shares a similar design concept with Triumph-Palace. Edelweiss is the first project in the "The New Circle of Moscow" program, in which about sixty high rise multi-use residential complexes will be built on plots around the city which were approved by the Moscow Architecture Committee.

Recreational facilities include an aquapark equipped with hydromassage tubs, waterslides, a solarium, a universal gymnasium, a ten-track bowling center, and billiards rooms.[1]
