Amazing pics. This must have been a treat. I love the towers, but I don't really like the Pudong or Dubai-like context.

I really have to check out Moscow. I live in a heavily Russian neighborhood in NYC, which whets my appetite for the real thing.

yes, density of modern districts very low. mostly complex construction.

as of server - it's fast and located in m10 datacenter, which is connected to m9.
just you can't loading all shots at once. they loading sequentially. there is a limit for sessions per ip.

Trantor, the city center is very dense, it is all built and there is very little free space, check a panorama of the center by Brad here
http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/showthread.php?t=127519

outside the historic center, dense apartment complex neighbourhoods are interspersed by parks and industrila zones, so they certainly look less dense than the center

but the local population density in those districts is very high since there practiclally no single family houses - they are all highrises - 5, 9, 14, 25 stories and up

so, if you zoom in a particular direction, it can look very dense, even outside the city center, like in these pics by Aleksey (from SCC)









if I am not mistaken, these pics were taken on the same day from the same location as this thread

the whole thred is here http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=467651

Moscow is an incredible city and so are these photos. The vast expansion of the conurbation is rivaled by few. Moscow looks as though it has a lot of park space (any central parkesque parks in the city?). Great set, you're lucky to be one of the first people on top of the tallest building in Europe - do you know if there will be an observatory eventually? Thanks.

Wow. I had no idea. Wonderful photos.

It also depresses me to know that Spring apparently comes to Moscow before it does to Boston!

Moscow is looking much better. I like the mix of the new sleek glass towers with the old Soviet style towers.
