A new ad has been recently put on Federation Tower - that of one of the most expected smartphones, Nokia N8. However, the ad is installed in a very strange way:

If it helps finance construction, they could plaster anything on there for all I care. Anything to reach those 510m!

i'm kinda confused by the project's future. will it be onhold or will they change the design to finish it with least money possible or will they just construct it very slowly and hope that there will be better times some day?

It's difficult to judge now. According to Mirax it's u/c.
Nobody says the design will be changed.

in view of the first pic I thought: "wow, new cladding on top - work has resumed!", but the second reveals the sheets that are meant to hide the significantly inactive construction site on top.
Anyone optimistic that there'll be more change on Vostok over the winter than occasional new ads?

I don't see any relation to slums and stopping construction on this tower?

Besides, I don't think thats a slum anyway. Looks more like an old industrial area with some old sheds.

I didn´t mean it, I just wanted to show the slums ...... the construction has already stopped, I mean the tower looks the same for months. I hope they will continue soon.... it really had a good design!

There are no slums in Moscow. There is old industrial zone with factories and urban railroad in this area.
