The Ukrainian capital of Kiev is set to solidify its position as the newest business hub in Eastern Europe with the development of Sky Towers

Designed by experts in multi-use projects, Hong Kong-based firm DLN, the towers will be the tallest commercial development in Eastern Europe. Comprising of two towers, of 34- and 57-storeys respectively, the project consists of a gross floor area of 155,400 sq-m with a height of 210 metres. Located on the intersection of Sholudenko Street and Peremogy Prospect in the Shevchenkovskiy District, the Sky Towers will be in a central position close to Kiev’s city centre and the main train station.

The mixed-use towers combine grade-A offices to accommodate 17,000 people, an international-brand name hotel, shops and restaurants. Pushing the boundaries of design, DLN have come up with a futuristic form for the towers, incorporating a host of geometric elements to reflect the transitioning nature of the city. As the first project to be completed in Europe by the Hong Kong practice, DLN has employed a range of skills gained from their work in creating iconic structures throughout Asia. "DLN is renowned for shaping the skyline of Hong Kong, and now we want to bring our 44 years of experience in building successful cities to Kiev through the Sky Towers. This is a significant project for DLN as we look to continue building on our industry knowledge and establish ourselves in other regions," said director of DLN, Alexander Lush.
