Only if they considered Muscovites worthy of any information regarding this building. Now people have to guess what the final design of this building would be. Such a secrecy only points out the developer has no respect to the city's residents.
What it will look like, what is the height, will there be a spire?
They gotta update their website.

Additional floors have made the tower to look more balanced.
And the cladding is awesome. It is perfectly suited on color to the skin of brown bears wandering across Moscow

You may learn to keep such thoughts to yourself as you mature.
You may even learn that it's a big world out there, and other cultures have different tastes to yours.

The cladding is what makes me like this tower more than Federation Tower. In fact, I even like Eurasia better than Federation Tower. The world needs no more blue/offgrey skyscrapers and cities seriously need to bring more colour into their skylines. I honestly wouldn't even mind a black glass skyscraper, it's just that greyblue glass is a bit unoriginal nowadays.

That's exactly why I find strange as well those who don't like the Montparnase tower in Paris just... because it's : "a BLACK monolithe", compared with similar 1970ies blue towers all over the world !

Are they close to doing the final slope or what?

Sorry, but I just want this to be done

Montparnasse is a huge exception. Its location kills it. If it were in la defence, with other skyscrapers, it would be better, in my opinion.

Mercury City Tower is clunky statement. The design has a 1970/80's attitude in a bad way. The white piping accentuates the awkward sloped forms. The color is the least offensive element, but is held back by all other attributes that fail. Even the massing is missing much needed height in the final upper setback, it appears to be stunted. Sorry, wish I had something good to say here... for the tallest tower in Europe, this is a sad bust.

You did not prove your statement that the tower is a clunky statement.
The sloped forms are brilliant, not awkward
The final upper setback is not built yet. Some floors have been added.
You say the upper section needs height. Others don't think so...

I don't intend to prove anything here... this is my opinion. I based my upper section comment on the rendering, not the current height of construction.
I'll also add that I will reserve final judgement until the actual tower is complete and can be viewed from many perspectives and times of day. However, if this tower were built in my city, I would be very disappointed.

Looks damned nice to me, cannot wait to see it with all the glass on it although, that would give me a final impression.
