This is such a cool design, I love it. They just need to take down that ridiculous Apartments/T-shirt advertisement. It looks so cheap.

I agree with you...It look much better without that shirt...

That's a really cool picture.

I think the spire is already 100 meters. ~120m?

Can anyone give an educated opinion on the comment below. It seems excessively pessimistic and overly generalized. It comes from an article at http://www.time.com/time/world/artic...,00.html?imw=Y

"Later, I found another friend pacing his office atop one of the newly built skyscrapers of "Moscow City," the real estate symbol of Prime Minister Vladimir Putin's ambitions of turning the Russian capital into a new world financial center. Several major companies had already moved out of these costly quarters to way beyond the city's municipal boundaries, where they still can afford the rent. My friend's company will soon follow. The Vneshtorgbank (VTB), a major state-run bank, has just canceled its long-planned relocation to the Federation Tower, the tallest of the Moscow City towers. Soon they will stand empty, symbols of failure."

Just another bullshit article, typical from western media.
