Singer building in St. Petersburg is a historical and architectural heritage building and owned by the federal government. Seven-storey building, built in modern style (1902-1904) for "Singer" manufacturing company, occupies about 7000 square meters. Management of "Singer" corporation wanted to build a skyscraper, similar to the "Singer" building in New York City, but it was not allowed to build houses more than 22 m tall in the center of St. Petersburg. The architect constructed a tower with a globe made of glass on the top that made an impression of a "Skyscraper", but didn´t block the view on other important buildings of the city center.
