I see this tower is underestimated in Russia. Maybe because of widespread advertising campaigne of another IBC building — Federation tower, which is much more popular.

Which is a shame, because it isn't just another tower, I like this one and it's very special in a good way.

Absolutely amazing tower. Moscow can be proud of this one. One of the best designs out there if you ask me. A phenomenal futuristic feeling to it. And the cool thing is, it looks Russian too, hehe. Reminds me of the Soviet Union in Red Alert 2 haha, it has this fierceness and strength as well rigidness to it, in a good way.

That's funny, my calculation of March 22 from the drawing was exact :
"I considered 309-285 = 24 ; 24/8 = 3 m for the last glass panel and consequently 3 x 7 = 21 + 285 = 306 m for the tower height (at the top of the metallic (...) structure of the pinacles put) on March 17".
So, with the last glass pannel : 306 + 3 = 309 m.

Because that would destroy the proportions of the building. The giraffe neck of the last step will ruin the architects idea and the visual harmony. Freudian complex of the building owners is just so exposed here. I cannot believe how cityhall would allow this, of couse a bribe would make that possible, seemingly the one good building design in the whole cluster is ruined and I pity Moscow.

Looking back at some pics, I personally don't think that a few more meters would ruin the proportions..

He is not a troll
Just his opinion is defferent from that of yours)

To my mind this possible future proportion is better than the old one.
