If all goes according to plan, the skyscraper will be completed by 2018. The original plans for the construction were presented in 2008, when numerous controversies appeared. At the same time as the new post about this project new images and schemes of construction have emerged, and the project is titled Triangle 2.
Within the new skyscraper with 42 floors will be located four-star hotel and 120 rooms, Sky Bar and 70,000 m2 of office space. Modification schemes now include the construction of an additional 2,240 m2 of space for nursery for employees' children.
