When you look at the glass in the video, it looks as if the sun is setting. That's pretty cool. But the tower is still one of the ugliest I have ever seen. The Moscow skyline would look so much more modern and "clean" without it. Or if they could've just changed the shape. It does look very Russian, though.

One thing I like about the Moscow Business Center is that the buildings look nothing alike. I mean, the World Trade Center will always be my favorite complex because even though the buildings have slightly different glass, together they look united as one. But this is so interesting, and to make it more exciting, all of them (or most) of the buildings are under construction at the same time!

Such an underrated colour for a skyscraper.

Underatted, as in, bad? The glass is wonderful! I give it the world's 5th best cladding in the world! (surpassed by 4 World Trade Center: Best Cladding in the World Award, 7 World Trade Center: 1st Runner up, Shanghai Tower: 2nd runner up, and One57: 3rd runner up)

Underrated means it is not liked enough. More people should appreciate this colour, and therefore use it more often.

I love the copper glass, but the banding from the mechanical floors and that LED media screen absolutely ruin the flow of the tower. You'd think they could try to make it blend in more, but oh well. I still love the color!

Funny how taste varies. I think this is an absolutely unique and stunning tower, partially due to its colour. One of the best around. Nice additional fact is that it currently stands as the tallest skyscraper in Europe.

Oh. Well, I agree. It's one of the best glass I've ever seen, and I live in one of the best cities in the world. (One57, 4 WTC, and 7 WTC's glass are absolutely stunning.) Why don't people like this tower and it's cladding? Is it because they don't like the cladding?

And by the way, I don't like the spire anymore and I'm happy it's gone, because it looks like a guy with a chainsaw, and it doesn't look pretty. I guess I would have been fine if they just put a silver stick on top of the roof, but the spire they planned to put on the building is not hideous, just a little creepy.

I wish I could have a glass panel like this for myself...

To be exact, we should wait until it's completed. In the mean time, The Shard in London is the tallest building in Europe.

Same, to be exact, Ryugyong Hotel in the North Corea is not the tallest tower. But common sense says it is
