Despite its small population (2.9 million), Kiev is ahead of such megacities as London, Moscow, Sydney, Mexico City, Bangkok, Seoul, and so on in terms of the number of developments.

The residential complex Mirax is marked on the SkyscraperPage resource as a high-rise building. Mirax is a mixed-use project: residential complex with commercial infrastructure.

The Urban Experts team in collaboration with the British architectural firm Leslie Jones Architecture have developed a re-concept of an office building into a residential property of international class.

The multifunctional complex should first include an office center with a height of 192 meters (which was supposed to be the tallest building in Ukraine), but in the process of work and practical adaptation of the development concept, the project’s indicators were optimized today to 28 floors and a height of 110 meters. The total area of ​​commercial real estate has been approved – 137 622 m2.
