I'm just call the big tower the great tower since it so much greater then the smaller tower. Plus I can't tell north from south in these pix. The spire as amazing and so is this building

Anyone know whether the spire is structurally important and that's why so little visible progress on the larger tower? Or perhaps just waiting 'til the spire is to a certain height before finishing the big guy so the two don't conflict?

On the time-lapse video you can see how fast the City of Capital Towers (the twin towers on the Left side) rose when compared to FT , since they were the same height as the East tower at the beginning of the video but on the end around 50 m higher or so...

Still i hope that construction on FT will move on soon, because this is one of my favorite projects not just in Moscow or even Europe, but Worldwide , and it would be very sad if construction would be halted or even cancelled (guess that it's highly unrealistic but still the possibility is here) because of the finance crisis.
I hope the same for Russia Tower too, but I don't think that the chnace sthat construction will move on anytime soon is high...

But in the first seconds of the time laps video the great tower doesn┤t grow fast too. Maby they work at the core or at the rooms in the floors.

But it also could be that it is on-hold because of financial crisis....

There is no may be. As it was said - they are working on mechanical levels with outriggers. It will allow to change column space and it takes up to half a year for every section. Current is almost finished.

If this white, for elevators, right. If gray b/w towers, that the spire.

Mirax is pretty close to bankruptcy, however have been juggling their finances to keep their head above water.

I'm confident the project will be finished, although obviously delayed already by the crisis, but am not sure it'll be Mirax who finishes it.
