History[edit]

Eurasia Tower was a skyscraper proposed in 2003 and to be on plot 12 in Moscow International Business Centre. It started construction in 2007. Eurasia Towers current owner, ZAO Techinvest, wanted Eurasia Tower to be the tallest building in Moscow. But Mercury City Tower, which was 339 m (1,112 ft), started construction in 2009 and was completed in 2013. Not only was it the tallest building in Moscow, it was also the tallest building in Europe, overtaking the 310 m (1,017 ft) tall Shard in London (which was slightly taller than Eurasia Tower). Eurasia Tower was completed in 2014, with a budget of $250 million, and the help of MOS City Group, Swanke Hayden Connell Architects and Thornton Tomasetti. It is now open to public in which you can visit and have a good look on the observation deck which is 306.8 m (1,006 ft) above the city and a parking lot of over 1000 spaces.
