The Federation Tower ( _ru. Башня «Федерация») is a skyscraper currently under construction as part of the Moscow International Business Center in Moscow, Russia. Construction of the towers began in 2003. When completed in 2009, it will become the tallest building in Europe, rivalring the Mercury City Tower (also in the Moscow IBC). By 2012, the Federation tower will then hold second place as construction of the Russia tower (also in Moscow IBC) is completed.

The complex, designed by the German firm NPS Tchoban Voss, is being developed by Mirax Construction and is owned by the Mirax Group. The construction company for the East Tower is the China State Construction Engineering Corporation, while the construction company for the West Tower is Turkish Ant Yapi. The curtain wall for both towers was designed by the New York office of Thornton Tomasetti under the direction of Jean-Pierre Kocher AIA.

The tower was climbed solo by frenchman Alain Robert in September 2007.

Design

The Federation Tower complex is divided into two towers:
* East Tower (A), designed to be over 506 meters (1,660 ft) to the tip of the spire. 93 storeys and 360.403 meters (1,182 ft) tall by roof. ::Construction Progress::::Core - 40th level:::Steelwork - 39th level:::Floorplates - 38th level

* West Tower (B), designed to be 62 storeys and 242.399 meters (795 ft) tall.::Construction Progress::::Built

Several floors of both towers will be utilized by the Global Hyatt Corporation. Bank VTB has opened a US$ 250 million credit line for the construction of the towers and has bought 33 office floors. Total construction cost for the complex is estimated to be over US$ 530 million.

The spire soaring up to over 506 meters (1,660 ft), will have a 360° view out its elevators which will move as quickly as 18 m/s (40 mph).

Bridges between Eastern and Western towers will contain restaurants and cafés.

Mirax Group president Sergey Polonsky [http://polonium194.livejournal.com/27959.html claimed] in his blog that Guinness World Records registered West Tower to have highest clocks in the world.
