After all, over one year after complaining about the slow progress (August 2007), I have to say again that I was right - I felt something like this would happen and well, since my last comment (which was in February) on this project, things seem as they didn't progress very much, still working on the underground parts - now not only another winter is coming, but the financial crisis is freezing the construction work completely. I feel like it could take some time to see this tower finished (reminds me of the SWFC story).

This building design is truly a work of art. I think I mentioned it before somewhere but this entire complex seems to resemble a "modern" of St. Basil's cathedral.

I am a Muscovite, and I think this tower is so extremely ugly as to be terrifying. There is nothing Russian in this tower. I wish this tower never gets built. I'm in favor of an old design. Now this is the tower they should have built

Why is it retarded? Give some rational motifs for you believe. And where did you find a pencil in here? Make it plain and comprehensible, because I don't perceive your mentality

I like that "pencil", hope one day they build it too in Moscow (I've read they are building something very similar in Malaysia or somewhere else in east Asia).

The pencil indeed looks far better. Russia Tower won't be much of a landmark for Russia.


When was that tower proposed? And for what place?

What are those people on the top talking about saying the pencil design is better???

The current render kills any other render comming near it, no doubt...

Don't think so. The pencil design looks much better and classy. The current one is very exchangeable.

i would say london bridge tower... but some poeple will be very upset bout my post, like all the chicago patriots who would have killed you if you had any doubt that cs is going to be built.
i also think that most of these 600m or more height towers in dubai wont be built. but enough pessimism for now.

Definitely prefer the current design, very modern. The Pencil looks like a tourist attraction a la Busan Lotte Tower; The new one looks like an icon.
