Probably not- the renders clearly show that the thin spire is supported by the taller tower. They will probably "cut" the part of the spire which is supported by the taller tower and than "paste" the part which is not supported at all on the lower part of the spire which is supported by the two towers. Anyway- they will need to do some serious redesigning.

Even with a redesign of the spire, it still should make it a supertall at least. But I hope Mirax can find the right financing to finish it according to the original design.

Yep. They just have to complete this tower the way it was intended to. It's the main piece of this collection. Also it's named after the Federation, it must become the tallest and best. Hell, in a city like Moscow, and with the kind of projected revenues involved in being at the core of MBD, it sounds crazy it can't find enough investors.

Height wise the design is a bit of a hack, so there's a part of me that would be happy to not see it reach hypertall scale. I just hope they can create good proportions if they decide to scale down.

It can be built out to the original design later, just like the Blue Cross Tower in Chicago and the Olympic Stadium in Montreal. Everything is already there to do that except money.

If I'm not wrong, the tower under construction (East Tower - Vostok), will've the same height of the completed one (242m./795ft.), isn't?
So this thread should be moved to the Skyscrapers section...

yes thats true that the east will be built smaller as projected but you might be wrong that the thread should be moved in to " highrise " cause i read some where that they leave the high of the spire (so 510 m ) but i'm not realy sure if this information is true.

can you read carefully - there are no such official plans at the moment

if there were such plans you would know them from us, not from yellow press.
