I doubt that FT will top out before BD...
There are still 61 floors to build, including 4 very difficult technical zones which takes several months each. Only after completion of 90th floor they will able to connect the spire. So it will happen not early of Q1 2009.

So only the spire between the 2 buildings will go to 506m? That would be the second 500m+ structure for Moscow.

I think the height of the two skyscrapers will be counted seperate and the spire will be counted as a no free standing structure.

The towers look great, they have advanced a lot in the construction, but these towers haven't been completed and they're making news. It was amazing how french spiderman climbed the West Tower.

It is the VTB's logo. VTB (Vneshtorgbank) is the 2nd biggest bank in Russia.
