So, the roof is still going to be 326m? I hope they don't cut the spire, because it adds so much more to the building (and I'm not talking about height).

minimum height - 326m. maximum - 340m.
on those renders it looks around 332-333 meters tall.

in my opinion the tower feels very neat without a spire.

I like the renders together with Evolution Tower aka City Palace aka Wedding Palace. And the render together with a completed Federation Tower. In a few years we'll see all three completed next to each other, will make Moscow City an even nicer sight.

With the spire I give this building a 9.8. Without it I give it an 8.9.

Sorry for this bit of trolling, I just cannot resist after a look at these renders.

It's not about if you hate them or not. This building was design to have one. It looks ok without one.

Unfortunately the spire was not the only one thing they took away/changed. Also some significant details are missing. Without them and without the spire the tower looks kind of uncomplete to me. I guess they have had to do some cost cuts to make it even possible to finish the tower.

the original design:



btw this just reminds me the wtc3 case

I take it you are also referring to the crossbraces being cut.
