I hate to be dissappointed so here is my question:

What`s the chances that this tower will be really build?

I don`t want a biased opinion. I want nothing but the truth.

^think you mean 'reminds you' of LBT''

Anyway, I shall be royally p'ed off if this tops out before LBT as this is a blatant cheap rip off the original, what will annoy me if this is built beforehand, people will say the London's a copy when we know it isn't. Blooming foster!!

Good call on that Lbt ripping off transamerica coth. I actually think they are all unique Lbt doesn't really look anything russian tower. Dimensions the same? Facade? Height? Just the pyramidical shape?

Sorry but this does not look one bit like LBT. It pisses me off when they say X tower is a ripoff of Y when only the basic shape are similar.

What's the first boxy tower ever built? By your logic most towers in this world are crap because they're a copy of that original box.

I thought this was one of those Projects that never actually get built. But it looks like it's really happening!

Badguyom, I apologise for my sarcastic comment, ignore me no hard feelings
Plus nothing was mentioned about this design being crap, it's absolutely stunning, but it's so blatantly obvious that this design was nicked from the Shard and a last minute redesign by Foster is a slap in the face to London. the fact the LBT has been proposed/approved for a number of years and with construction still to happen (and it WILL) cries out agony.

LBT is not a cheap ripoff of transamerica, just as Russia tower is not a cheap rip off of LBT. People, LBT and Russia Tower are two VERY different shapes! And they are both amazing. Good news that this is getting built, it is really going to help Moscow and Europe on the world skyscraper scene.
