I think Moscow has the best skyline in Europe in the moment. I'm sure in 2012 it will overtake many world cities with skyscrapers.

This is what I have been curious of all along since this building started construction - the central spire/antenna - It looks to me like it will be made of concrete...

On the spire note, I always thought people were supposed to see 360 degrees outside the elevator while going up. But it looks like concrete surrounded, my thought was silly anyway, 100% see through spire with elevator will scare people away.

That visible grey cylinder below blue hat thing is concrete. Is there detailed diagram of the spire showing where its see through and where composition of spire changes etc...

Some people are saying that it will be a concrete tube that will open up (will switch to steel and glass?) right above the part that is already finished by now (I think it's called the west tower).

As far as being scared, I do not think so. I do not get scared when I ride elevator to the top of TV tower in Las Vegas.

Good progress!

To the spire: Maybe it will host not internal, but external elevators, I think it is big enough to host 4 or even 6 of them...

Nice buildings. But it would be much better when they had not all the same color. i'm missing some contrast.

So happy about the skyscrapers being build in the Moscow City... Federation Tower would be the tallest building in Europe when finished right?
