It's not that simple. The costs rise with the height some exponentially.

When a 300m skyscraper costs for example 1 bio $ that doesn't mean that a 600m one costs 2 bio$ but 2,5 or 3 bio$ while remaining conditions of course.

Is there a planned date when construction should resume or has it run out of money?
Not much has changed. Only a few stages were build during the last 5 months. There is no official reason for the abortion. It came very abruptly.
In the russian section isn't any new information.

The creditor is fed up with construction process (12 floors in 2 years) and refused to give another part of the credit.

Cranes stand on the tower because their work is not paid, the "ENKA" files suit on the "Potok8". The kernel still to renovate and renovate. Renovate two floors of the three should be of defective,*because was the decision to to dismantle third floor. The spire will likely will be in the distant future to dismantle. Well, so now the project has become interested Bank VTB. Wait and see what comes of it. By the winter could again will begin to build the tower.

its so crazy... while all these other towers in Moscow are going up so quickly (Evolution tower, Mercury tower etc etc), yet this is dragging on. If this will not be finished whilst the others are finished, it will be a real eye sore. :-/

No need to worry, I understand what you mean and discussing with people on a forum is the best way to learn english so you'll learn it well in time. Besides, nobody was ever born with knowing all languages

Sadly, I am worried about this building, that crooked top looks really bad. This does look like quite extensive damage. I don't want to be overly pessimistic but the damage looks really bad. Together with problems with financing which iirc this tower had I don't see this finished any time soon

Yes, very true. Excellent way to learn English.

Also, I agree... i cannot see this being finished anytime soon. Which is a real shame for Moscow's beautiful skyline.

What I don't understand is why doesn't one of Moscow's many billionaires buy in to this project and help finance it to completion.

It might have been but that damage is very extensive. That floor is definitely irreparable and some of the floors below it might be as well

I guess they'll have to disassemble a floor or two and then build it again
