Construction work on Lakhta Center, already Europe’s tallest building, is now focused on its crown and spire, Skyrise Cities reported in January. Glass panels were also being installed on the lower levels of the St. Petersburg, Russia, building. The 462-m-tall, 87-story skyscraper is to be headquarters of Russian natural gas company Gazprom, which has been planning the tower since 2005 (ELEVATOR WORLD, July 2014).

The building has also already set the record of nearly 20,000 m3 of concrete being dispatched in a continuous pour, topping the previous title held by the Wilshire Grand Center in Los Angeles. The finished building will include offices, 1,500 m2 of exhibition space and a public observation deck located on the highest floor providing 360° views. To keep abreast of Lakhta Center’s construction, view the fascinating official live camera at youtu.be/S_kcciBarbU.
