So are they not going to build the spire anymore to bring the overall height to past 500m?

Nope. I think it's because of financial problems.

spire canceled in 2013, because of crisis of 2008, and long recession in company. the owner sold the company and shareholders decided to stop building spire and disassemble first section. I wrote it one time, maybe in MIBC threat

Ah what a shame! I really liked the tower with the spire. Still looks fantastic but I really liked it.

"Vostok" simply means "East"
