About Lakhta Centre
The Lakhta Centre is a project of the construction of a mixed-use complex with the total area of 400,000 square metres in Saint Petersburg. The high-tech skyscraper is located outside of the city centre on the coast of the Gulf of Finland. The concept of the project includes the construction of a business centre, a sports complex, various public facilities, a scientific and educational complex and other services. The centrepiece of the Lakhta Centre is the 462-metre-tall tower, officially the tallest building in Europe. The building was designed by British architecture firm RMJM. The developer of the Lakhta Centre is an energy company Gazprom.
Lakhta Centre will feature a 360-metre-high observation deck and a restaurant with panoramic views. The completion of the Lakhta Centre is scheduled for the end of 2018, while a publicly accessible observation deck will welcome first guests late 2019.
