I love what Russia is building these days and I also love their old architecture. Moscow really would be a fantastic place to visit.

There is no exact answer to your question.

Not even the tallest in London now.

Isn't it time to take this thread out of the Supertalls or are we going to wait until 2050 in case something reliable really happens in Moscow?

it's so hard to understand that on hold is different from cancelled or shortened or whatever? just wait till they finish the tower and we will see at which height it is arrived!

I hope they will finish this fantastic tower at the height is planned for, so... Wait! or is so frustrating for you that London don't have the tallest in Europe?
And for the record, they already have the top 3 skyscrapers in Europe and other 3 are U/C plus 1 in Saint Petersburg! -> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...pers_in_Europe

Certainly, will not. Moscow has ALREADY one supertall (more than 300 m) called 'Moscow'

IMO it is not about height that makes a scraper internationally regognised, but it's look, and not wanting to start a war here but I think London does a better job of making world recognised scrapers. Or maybe moskow hasn't had enough time for it's scrapers to gain recognition...

the look of a skyscraper is subjective, personally I think that Federation Tower and Naberezhnaya Tower are a lot better of the Shard, but this is my opinion.
And I don't think that London is world recognized for its skyscraper, they have nice skyscraper, the Gherkin is one of the best, Heron also, but not a world recognized skyline.

We will know pretty soon. As soon as that core gets taller than the other tower, its heading toward the original height! I don't think I can even bear the idea that it might be lowered. And if the spire doesn't go up any higher than the buildings, it will even look worse!

I love the original design, the look of a mast with two sails on each side. If East Tower has to be shorter, I'd prefer it to match the West tower and then the spire (mast) rise above them both. If they just top off East tower now, it just being a couple floors shorter than West t., it'll look terrible.

God, I hope Mirax gets the financing to finish the original design.

In the world neither London neither Moscow has any recognition of skyscrapers, USA and China rocks there with NY and HK, Asian and North American skyscrapers like Empire State building are known worldwide, sorry almost nobody knows about London skyscrapers except for Swiss tower as far as I talked with people. Well, not many people know Moscow has any skyscraper

Well, hopefully both cities and Europe will start to build more modern buildings.
