The Russian multinational energy corporation Gazprom is discussing with the authorities of St. Petersburg the construction of the 555-metre-high Lakhta Centre 3 skyscraper.
“In order to further develop the public and business district around the Lakhta Centre, the concept of the third skyscraper is presented. With its appearance on the coast of the Gulf of Finland, a harmonious architectural ensemble of three modern high-rise buildings will be formed,” the message says.
The company noted that the architectural composition of the new tower was created on the principle of the golden section, the shape of the tower is an exponential logarithmic spiral. This is a skyscraper with two wing buildings that are intertwined around closed translucent atriums.
According to the concept, the height of the tower will be 555 metres (108 levels), the area will be about 179 thousand square metres. The three-level stylobate will house office space and parking. The height of the highest level will be 453 metres and, as planned, it will house a viewing gallery.
It is reminded that in May of this year, Gazprom proposed to build Lakhta Centre 2 in St. Petersburg, which will become the second tallest skyscraper in the world. Currently, the tallest building in the world is the Burj Khalifa skyscraper in the UAE with a height of 828 metres. The height of the Lakhta Centre that is already built in St. Petersburg is 462 metres.
