Well, it doesn't look so bad without the spire IMO. I quite like the way it's gonna look now TBO. The skybridges (at least one) could have been kept, though.

I'm surprised they aren't demolishing the spire first. Seems a little risky to finish the towers and then remove the spire. Why take the risk of damaging your buildings? I would assume they'll be covering the spire with scaffolding and netting to protect the buildings as much as possible. But with all that's occurred with this building (ie. fires, delays), seems like they're just tempting fate.

Yeah I was about to ask the same thing that I'm surprised it appears the lower floors of both towers are being fitted out and opened for business even while the top is still being built. But then again if that smaller tower did indeed finish two years prior, it's no surprise it should be well-filled by now. I just thought the smaller tower seemed to have been open for business before it was even done, but that wouldn't be right.

I wonder what they'll think of next to castrate this tower even further...

Castre seems to be the word.

It would have been an unique icon in the skyscraper-world.

Now it turns out to be nothing. ( ) Nothing.

Very sad... The Red Square remains "the image" of Moscow.

Such HIGH hopes. Such impoense

Trying to look at the bright side: It won't outshine the great scrapers there.....

The spire is scrapped? Am i in a nightmare? NO!!!!!!

NONONONONONONO!!!!!!!!!!!

(And by the way it has been a long time since I've used emoticons besides lol, and this is the first time I've used negative emoticons. That's like a child who swore for the first time. )

But no! That is NOT right! That DEFINITELY needs to be fixed! They can't just DO that! WHY DID THEY JUST DO THAT?!?!?!

Okay, maybe I was overreacting, but this was very unexpected and disappointing. I really wanted some kind of pinnacle to top off Moscow City. Now I know how it feels to have One World Trade Center's radome scrapped! But I guess the absence of the spire brings something contemporary to the building. Now it looks more like two buildings than one building. And it looks more modern. But I still want the spire back. Life lesson: Life is full of disappointment. But seriously, I will always feel nostalgic for the spire. Ironically, The Mercury City Tower's spire was scrapped, also.

Unfortunately Moscow IBC has seen a much more heartbreaking loss than the Federation Tower spire.

I like them more without the spire and sky bridges. One or two sky bridges would be alright IF they had an arc in the facades to match the towers.
