What are the 3 going up at the front of the picture? Are they going to be tall or a similar size to the other two smaller buildings in the picture. What ever they are its going to look very impressive when they are finished.

Actually it was just an opening day of photo exhibition titled "Builders of Federation" (some pics - here). While we, the visitors, drank wine and walked to and fro, construction workers never stopped their work - it seems, they work 24/7 down there.

@Xander
Lowest is the Terminal. Check IBC thread for renderings.

Taller is approval on Plot 16a. 275m 62f. Design is probably not final.

It's to early to judge the appearance of Moscow's future skyline, and.. I'm puzzled. How does Eiffel tower and Transamerica building apply to their corresponding cities?

Well you're entitled to your own opinion. But I have to disagree.

I think they look great together, and part of it is because they're all unique. When you look at most skylines, most are just boxes. Here... its something different.

Why shouldn't it apply to Moscow? Its Vostok and Zapad. East and West. Uniting them. Its very symbolic.

That and it can become another symbol of Moscow. Along with Kremlin, 7 Sisters, etc.

They don't look like anything in particular. But FT looks specifically like a sail.
