Almost all except something rectangular on the left (there will be towers too but their shape appeared later than this picture was made) and two Zaha Hadid towers on the right: they are approved. Everything in the center is u/c now in different stages. Or even finished already.

For example from nearby u/c thread, Kingkey Finance Center Plaza itself is not u/c too, they are excavating the hole.
Ground works are part of construction process.

As much as the design is tripod and is more stabler than other designs, doesn't it also become vulnerable to the wind due to cone faced design?

I mean that this: ^ shape would give wind hard time escaping from the face of the tower. It is similar to Burj Dubai but BD's face angle isn't as deep in as Russia tower's and plus BD's edge of the faces are curvy so it can smoothly let air circulate wind around it.

On the other hand its so massive and robust. So wind should not be a problem at this height, I believe. If it would be id imagine they would rounden the corners.

Densetsu: The tallest at least.

wind is always a problem. the design dampens its effects

I should have been more specific.

Im glad to see this being realized though. Moscow is going high tech.
