What is WE?

THEY have a choice: Either they build one gigant (expensive) tower or 3 small (cheap) ones.

the way this reduction was anonced in Russian it is unclear if the tower will 200m tall, or if hight of the tower will be reduced by 200m (so that tower will be 412m tall).
At any rate it is way to early to take any of this as a reliable information. In the current mess in construction in Moscow any speculations are beside the point.
But if we would speculate, then one of the developers - Mirax through its flamboyant (not in a faggy way) owner/chairman Sergey Polonsky says it would love to buy the project and finish it in original design, height and location.

Anxiously waiting for fresh and reliably news concerning this project... I have no clue why Moscow officials do not take advantage of Mirax Group's offer...

But if we build 3 small towers (less than 300 metres), that means that the city of Moscow have p#ssed out on us. Build the tall tower as planned or don't build it at ALL. And I'm not going to build a green space on the site either.

is not silly question... they look the same... at 200m,400m,600m,1800m... is the same design... the only diference is how would fit the other buildings.
In Moscow IBC would look small, but in other european cities would dominate the skyline...

Personaly I like the 400m version. It would still look the biggest in IBC, only in statistics Federation Tower would be taller (spire). I know a lot of boys here are obsessed with size (I wonder why ) and really want a 600m tower, but a 400m would fit better IBC.
