the Liver complex in Liverpool,

Now you mention it, I can see the similarity. The Liver building is only about 40 miles from us.

One can see that the new planned design will blend better and compliment the Kremlin and Red Square rather than overshadow them.

Its still standing.  It was the old Hotel Rossiya torn down last year to make way for an even more massive new hotel, office and shopping complex.

To give an idea of how large it was, it was 21 floors tall,  had 3,200 rooms, 245 half suites, a post office, a health club, a nightclub, a movie theater and a barber shop as well as the 2500-seat State Central Concert Hall. 

Stayed there during my first visit to Russia in 1997.  It was originally built to host all western travellers to Moscow - appropriate security included.  I remember getting my morning workout running around the inside of the hotel on my floor - figured it was close to 1/3 mile each lap.  Saw a concept in the theatre and went to the Anastasia "socials" in the night club.  There was a Baskin-Robins ice cream parlor there too!

What was it like to be in Moscow so many years ago?

Many valuable photos and films remain of those days and here is a sampling from YouTube. For instance, several very interesting videos are produced around the old and popular "Song of Moscow."


This video features scenes from Moscow streets, the underground Metro as it looked in days past, trolley buses, and from a cruise on the Moscow river: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4CCoJwuv1iY

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LYseI5qlbLM




And of course there are more modern views of Moscow, too:
