You need to check more the forum searching for canceled projects outside Russia.

If they don't build the spire, people will complain that Russia only cares about money and not aesthetics.

But then if they build it, people will complain that Russia is cheating for height and that they only care about vanity.

Actually, Russian developers concern only about money. Watch this thread with comparisons of what was designed and what was built http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1477545 (mostly in Russia)

I think there was a problem with the foundation of the spire and they were affraid it wouldn't hold since it was supposed to be made of steel and glass initially.

Although I would like to see the spire built, I always thought it was too tall for the building. The height of the building with the spire was supposed to be 1673ft., so if the building is 1224ft., then the spire would have been 449ft. tall. That is longer than the WTC spire, which definitely looks too tall. My vote would be to build the spire, but at a shorter height.

This is a great pair of towers. I think I will eventually get used to the missing spire, but it would have been amazing.

They really should get rid of that green stuff on the mall and glass it or perhaps do a stone-y facade to contrast all the glass elsewhere or something. Right now it looks like a cheap plastic backdrop of the 1980's kind, or one of those fish tank backgrounds... It's horrible.

As far as the Federation tower goes, man it has grown now since Renaissance took over. Looks awesome.
