Well, for me the spire was something that made this project truly outstanding. Without the spire MCT looks unfinished, it's just... Try to imagine Empire State Building without its spire: the beauty is still there, but the shape lacks a final touch. This is the kind of feeling I have about MCT now

Unless the Spire is also streamlined with the shape of the building. Not looking like an antenna on a Radio.

Can't wait til' it's finished

It's going to look great. Moscow will have the best skyline in all Russia when this, the Federation Towers, Evolution and Eurasia get completed. Also if they build Russia Tower and, of course, City Hall and City Duma

It's funny, the last thing you'd expect in Russia is a bright orange skyscraper.

Haha! This is indeed a delightful surprise! As for the last picture, I would say, Russia has enough of this, BUT so many cities have new bright and shiny districts, historical centers and inhabited areas - Yekaterinburg, Saint Petersburg, Sochi, Kazan, Vladivostok, Perm, Grozny, Novgorod, Novosibirsk, Hanty-Mansiysk....

I agree with the sentiments that Moscow now has the best skyline in all of Europe. Not just the height, but also (especially) the unique and memorable designs of the each of the scrapers give Moscow the edge! Keep it up!
