MOSCOW, November 9 (Itar-Tass) - American billionaire and businessman Donald Trump plans to build an office centre in Russia to be like New York's Trump Tower.
The businessman, who is in Moscow in connection with the Miss Universe 2013 beauty contest finals, told Itar-Tass that he planned to launch a business in Russia and was negotiating with Russian companies to build such a skyscraper.
Among the companies is Crocus Group of Russian billionaire Aras Agalarov. The company owner confirmed to Itar-Tass that there were plans for joint construction projects with Trump. "We began to discuss joint work in the area of real estate a few days ago," Agalarov said. This year, Crocus has participated in the organization of the Miss Universe show owned by Trump.
Russia's highest skyscrapers are located in the Moscow City international business centre. The 339-m-high Mercury City Tower, after the completion of the main construction work on November 1, 2012, became Europe's highest. It is 33 m higher than London's Shard.
The Federation East Tower, which is under construction, may become the highest. The planned height of the 97-storey tower is 385 m. The construction is expected to be finished in 2014.
The Russian developer company Crocus Group was founded in 1989.
