Oh, and the cladding has risen but most other constructors can do that much in a month or 2.

We all know that this project has been more or less on hold for about a year, but during the last months there was a steady, little progress at the top. Hopefully this continues. Even on the last pic that was quoted above, you can see that one of the cranes is lifting some kind of steel column.

Actually it's very visible - there was one outrigger level assembled. Now it's full 6-level structure.

There was a documentation on german TV yesterday, called: "Katastrophen und Konstrukte" on ntv. They stated that the federation tower is the strongest building ever made, when its finished and explained a lot of details on how the building is actually constructed to withstand any possible force.

Yeah, gotta agree here. I've also read that Federation Tower can even withstand a plane crash. Wow!

I have a good feeling this has been asked before...what is going inside the spire? It appears to be covered in glass for a good portion.

I've always loved the design of this building and have been concerned that construction might come to a stop due to financial problems but I have the feeling that once a project of this magnitude has been constructed to such an advanced state that there's so much money already invested in it that it simply can't be abandoned. I realize it's proceeding very slowly but at least progress is being made. I'm hoping that once this worldwide economic slowdown has eased that we will see this tower completed at a faster pace. Moscow is going to have a very impressive skyline.
