@anyone who might know
Is this residential or commerical or mixed? When can the people/businesses move in and how expensive are the units in the building?

Damn beautiful Moscow at night! That is a superb improvement even from a few years ago.

I am wondering the spire will be connected to both towers at several levels. Will the spire also have an elevator with observation deck at the top or even a restaurant? I am sorry if I did not read the post earlier. I still am infatuated with the 'cloud cladding' that is a remarkable design!

I remember a couple years ago this was called 'Complex Federation' I like that name better than the present one. I also love the height increase of the spire, now when completed it will be awesome.

One more thing. The low rise building perhaps 10 or 12 floors, I love it. Is that not adjacent to the place where Russia Tower will be built?

Woow the construcition of the tower is going very well. I like how the towers looks with the neon lights at night, it looks amazing. The other constructions in the sorounding area looks very advanced. I like how the city has change a lot during the past year and hoping to see more changes in this year.

Have not been on this thread but LOVE the neon cranes! The Moscow skyline is fast turning into a world class financial district.

Well done! (with more to come I am sure)
