Yeah that's true, to me 600m (which is taller than the CN Tower!) doesn't seem nearly as high to me as it seemed just on year ago, with all those new towers in Dubai, as well as in Kuwait and Jeddah, some of which are planned to be more then double the height of Russia Tower (which already is two times higher then Europe's currently tallest highrise!) ...
But still the massiveness of this tower, as well as the unique "rocket" design will surely make RT one of the most recognizable highrises worldwide, as well as a new landmark for Moscow on par with the Kremlin and St. Basil's Cathedral.

Recent weeks there is not much activity at the site. We don't know the reason, do they stay because of technology or funds. Project isn't on hold officially though.

I don't know, was there a few days ago, ammount of activity seems to be the same as usual, hydrofraise changed it's position. I wasn't paying much attention though...

Well, lets hope it's one of the usual setbacks that were happening all around Moscow City at one time or another, and not lack of funding due to credit crysis.

Sad to see it halted, but at least were not left wondering. No reason that construction can't restart in the future though.

Yeah, it sucks to be a Russian billionaire these days. Some of them were hit pretty hard by the "crisis.” When the future financing of the project gets shaky the project construction turns shaky too.
