Lakhta Tower Saint Petersburg
High, higher, highest: This is the motto in current high-rise construction and is also true for the new Lakhta (Lachta) Center in Saint Petersburg. Gazprom's headquarters is already Europe's tallest building. The multi-purpose site, which has been under construction since October 2012 and will have 400,000 square meters of usable space, will be the heart of Gazprom Group's headquarters; a significant portion of the site is earmarked for public and leisure infrastructure. The Lakhta Center building will be the new landmark of St. Petersburg and, at 462 meters, the tallest building in Europe. The highest of the 87 floors will be 372 meters high. The viewing terrace there will provide an impressive panoramic view of the city of St. Petersburg and the Baltic Sea. The same applies to the panorama restaurant at a height of 315 meters.
