you are correct, JOSSZZ, there is no definitive render

early renders are sketchy, plus they are wrong because many buildings went through significant design changes

later renders are wrong because every time any buliding is changed/new one is introduced - the investor/builder of this particular building makes a render of the IBC that shows off their own building but greatly simplifies and even distorts competing projects; such renders even now are frequently based on obsolete versions of many buildings

so, there is no up-to-date render

the foto was taken from the 20th floor of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs (one of 7 sisters); the original and larger version are here



it is more than 1.5 years old and is already outdated by construction; but we so rarely see pics taken from this limited access building that I feel the pic is worth posting

I wish St. Basil's Cathedral were not blocked. But then, I guess, the scraper would be blocked...
Beautiful shot anyway.

Not much more so far; it is an approved proposal, construction to be finished in 2014. A couple of renders

These are CHPs (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cogeneration). The water vapor from Cooling towers (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cooling_tower) is quite more visible when the temperature is below 0 °C.

Moscow, as I am sure you know, is northern-most megapolice of 15mln people, and probably the coldest too. There are a number of big heat/electricity generating plants in the city, but only one of them- the one on Kievskaja embarkment is anywhere close to historical city center.

taken from: http://metro-rumata.livejournal.com/120890.html

Even this plant is well outside Garden Ring, but it is close to Hotel Ukraina, IBC and Moscow State U, so it does get in a lot of pictures.

Good news - most of these chimneys do not emit much toxic stuff - mostly CO2 and water vapor. Bad news - these chimneys on Kievskaja do interfere with skyline. It is technically possible to clean the emissions and release them from much lower chimneys, but it would cost some $$, and I have no idea if fathers of the city consider doing away with Kievskaja chimneys any time soon for aesthetic reasons.
