I strongly agree. Two spires at the top would have been even better.

If they're not going to add a spire, why does the obvious place to put a spire have a giant set of sliding doors in front of it?

God this building looks like such a mess with all the random black stripes. It will never stop looking unfinished.

Those black stripes damage the design so much. Whoever was in charge of placing them should be fired.

And especially that stupid screen on top which has done nothing but display random colours. No ads, nothing.

They might display ads once it's opened (if it hasn't been opened already).

This is my subjective opinion but this is the least fitting building in Moscow city skyscraper ensemble. It doesn't mean the building itself is bad or deeply flawed, but its overall design and shape just screams 80's while being on a sleek, glassy background.

Does anyone else hold this sentiment, because I apparently cant get over it?

It was supposed to look a bit older because it is designed in reference to the constructivist design movement of the early 20th century, which ties it to Russian culture. The glass also gives reference to the red colour that is so important to Russia.

The intent is understandable but I think there could've been a much more elegant design that could have done the same job and still nicely blended in with the rest of the buildings.

Elegance is subjective

It is but when you directly compare its design with lets say, Federation towers, then it presets some sort of unwritten aesthetic guidelines.
