The proportions - Base to Height - are more "normal" the Chicago Spire has very small Base for it's height.

Most ( if not all ) of the renders are from angles that show the CS and it's height, from other angles it will not be that out of place ( wait a few years and I'll be posting shots from the west ).

I have a feeling that they are going to extend the height of this tower by building a new tower on the top. I have a feeling that Chicago Spire may do the same too.

But if you see the renders of the two, they all have no antennae and they are both 610m and 612m. I bet they have a hidden agenda of overtaking each tower by placing an antennae just like what the Chrysler building's architects did to 40 Wall Street in the last minute by putting a new spire.

I think he meant adding additional height to both towers...extra floors.

An insider told me the secret modifications Gaeus was talking about are really going to happen, there are 2 options on the table:

Perhaps this one is more stilish:

So, the loss of Russian cultural architecture identity is nothing to fear for.

I love this building. It is sleek, elegant, modern, "understated," soaring and majestic. I like the Chicago Spire too (I know we are not supposed compare buildings) but I think Russia's tower is better. It seems very glassy and crystalline. Congratulations to Moscow!
