This is the worst thing I have ever seen on this website. Also...it looks like a phallus (apparently the actually anatomical name for that is censored which is ridiculous).

Sorry but i need to be honest : this tower is absolutely UGLY ,they need to change the design if they don't want to be remembered for having the biggest P-nus monument in the globe.

just imagine Lakhta Center becoming on hold and taking longer than expected, with Federation Tower's spire being done, this would become the tallest building in europe. wouldn't it make us all proud...

It's rare to see almost everyone so outspoken against a design here

My question is what do they need such a huge tower for?
Hotels? Chechen Republic has a huge touristical potential no question, but they have some hotels, I think.
Apartements? I don't think that there is such a demand. It wouldn't be cheap also.
Offices? There aren't so much huge companies in Grozny.

Prove this building is funded by any government group whatsoever.

I'm sick of comments like these, on every large building thread...

Personally, I like Islamic architecture and I can see certain core Islamic elements in this one. But, my God, do they have to house them in such an insanely ugly building? This isn't just ugly, it's world-class ugly.

I think that's a different building, I remember seeing that design elsewhere.

I "studied" the russian forum section of this project as good as i can...(with google translator)
This is the last recent pic postet 21.01.2015:



It seems there's a little bit preperation work.
When i get the comments there right official sources claims the project is going further...but the reactions to this statements sounds like this is more propaganda and desinformation than anything else.
Perhaps someone here could translate the last pages there exactly.
