No money - simple as that In fact FT is most problematic project in all Moscow IBC atm - financial wise. Developer is practicaly bankrupt and it's not clear yet who will be new owner of this tower. That's why it's sooo slow.

Several elevated walkways connect the buildings via the masts.

Elevated walkways, always a bad idea. No one uses them, they kill foot traffic beneath them, the overhang causes people to avoid the area underneath.
The area underneath is part of the building, so it's not walkable. The walkways are useful in many ways, they effectively turn the two towers into one, plus they are good for safety.

Also they need the East Tower finished in order to build the spire upwards, sonce it's attached to it.

Petronas has a walkway and there is no area walkable.

But look at the mall underneath, and look at its sales.

Walkways are bad ideas for humans, on planet earth. Overhangs are the same. Oppressive, scare people off, etc.

I see you've got a very uncommon disease, you should see a doctor.

Through your lack of understanding of what the word "disease" means, I see you suffer from a severe lack of education. You should see an elementary school.

At least there's some progress. Looks to be a floor or two taller since earlier this year. Very slow. But it's something.

An uncommon insight.

FBI building in DC, walkways in Chicago, New York, Los Angeles and Seattle, the new
Shenzhen Stock Exchange Plaza, the .Gov buildings in Changzhou...I know I am correct in my assessment.

Elevated walkways and overhangs kill the ground beneath of all foot traffic.

How the hell does elevated walkways kill the ground beneath? I mean, it's not like it's going to destroy the earth, is it?

I believe that the claim is that elevated walkways/skybridges divert pedestrian circulation away from the ground level and thus make the area seem more deserted. This is true in some cases and not so in the case of others. The diversion of pedestrian traffic also depends on other factors such as climatic conditions and traffic density. In places like HK, multiple-level pedestrian circulation thrives, so it's difficult to come up with a standard verdict on skybridges.

The official sources say: they are not going to rise the spire at least in next 5 years
