Okhta Centre may be shortened by 300 metres

Gazprom business centre project in St Petersburg including an impressive skyscraper may undergo changes as it is opposed by the Russian Minister of culture. The height of Okhta tower should be cut from 396 m to 100 m, allowed by St Petersburg altitude regulations, claim the minister.
      The 396 m Okhta Tower will wreck the city architectural look, just like a tower built in Moscow not far from the Red Square.
      The government has not approved the project officially; the height of the Okhta Tower is still not agreed upon. Experts presume the ministers decision to oppose the project may bear fruit over global economic instability.
