Apparently, not: these slopes are on the northern side. Moscow has very low insolation anyway.

I saw a MLP drawing book at the grocery store today and almost bought it.

The LED display kinda ruined my total joy for this skyscraper. I'm fine with the mechanical floors, at least they add some kind of pattern to it. The big LED just looks like some kind of rendering error from a video game, heh.

Maybe there is still hope. At least there already was a precedent in Moscow City - the top of Naberezhnaya tower was reclad after owners realised their mistake:

The sad thing is that there is visibly different glass below and above the black blob, so it would be very difficult to remove without a total makeover of the top section.

What type of glass did they use, looks very "coppery".

Seems the adrenaline junkies love this tower.

The up-close glass is so spectacular. Some of the most beautiful glass I've ever seen!
