I think it is very silly to build ugly disproportionate structure that will stay this way forever, in order to hold some meaningless record for a short tme...
As is it already too tall for balance, well this would be not as obvious from closer distances as perspective will cover it to a degree.

I tihnk you don't get my point, it already been extend whether u like it anot, furthermore we havent seen the new/modified design we can't assume it will be that disproptionate.


My point is, since they have already decided to extend, might as well go futher just a few metres. A few metres wouldn't make a much of a difference consider they have already increased the height by almost 60m


Now just its another 3 more metres to the title. T101 is really goddamn lucky lol

Wow! Moscow is amazing. They don't show the skyline in the news that most people outside Russia would think St. Basil's Cathedral's the tallest structure in Moscow.

I'd like to precise... They don't just say 506m, but they repeat 'the hight may be higher than 506 m'
