The City Hall and Duma building in Moscow's new business district Moscow City is to become the new seat of the Moscow government and at the same time accommodate the city of Duma . The structure will consist of four 308.4 meter, 71 storey high buildings. These four identical buildings are connected to one another in such a way that the letter M (for Moscow) results in the facades from all four directions .

Since the government buildings of the city of Moscow are widely distributed over the city, this project was born. The aim is to bring the authorities under one roof. The old official buildings can also be sold. In addition, the new buildings should be better equipped technically.

Work on this project began in November 2005. The complex was originally supposed to be completed in 2009, but further construction was delayed in connection with the international financial crisis . Currently (as of January 2018) nothing more is known about the planning.
