i think the bridges were only possible because of the spire holding them together. to build the bridges they would need a redesign, which would need money, which was the cause of the spire to get cancelled to begin with. the latest renders seemed to suggest that the bridges were gone as well

I get what you're saying but my problem is that, in a way, they do blend in together and too much.

For instance sometimes in life we want to go to a loud party and be surrounded by people but I don't think anyone wants every moment of their life to be loud parties. We like to surround those loud parties with times of peace and serenity or small low-key get togethers with friends and family or moments of productivity when we accomplish things. We can better appreciate the parties by spacing them out.

These buildings are all like loud parties that are just playing different kinds of music.

In my opinion, the orange tower should be an icon of Moscow but placed there, I don't really see that happening. Why would it? All the buildings are shiny. All of them are modern, audacious designs. All of them very tall. What does the orange one really do that the others don't? Its not the tallest, its not significantly older and thus doesn't possess any real nostalgic or historical significance over any of the other buildings, its not the craziest of designs there, its not the shiniest...

So you see, the buildings, to me, are kind of smothering each other. That's what annoys me about it, I think.

Kind of funny it became the tallest, considering it was planned to the 4th tallest behind Russia Tower, Federation Tower C and Mercury City Tower.

This building is cool, hopefully someday Moscow will get a signature tower to really stick out above the rest.

The CDB is looking great though

Finally, after so many years of delays, fires, and developer changes, this tower is nearly finished.
