great to see that the project gets back on track to its old speed!
the top is progressing quite well: http://www.federationtower.ru/about/process/

two questions:
what is the use of the openings in the windows that are placed above the second mechanical floors?
And secondly, will they place these X-formed pattern, which was tested at the bottom of the front, onto the whole cladding or just in some parts?

Nice tower. But the main problem with the 'Moscow City' cluster is that all the new buildings have glass facades (particularly blue and green ones) which makes the skyline a little bland. More variety certainly wouldn't hurt.

I agree. Cluster is too dark.

There are apartments on these floors, they should have openings in the windows according to the standards.

While they all have the glass facades, some of the one's in early construction stages right now will be different colors. Mercury City Tower is copper, and City Hall/Duma will have a red tint. That should give the cluster some variety.

Russia Tower was also to be black.

The core is topped out. The dome is only left. We except the tower to top out by the end of the year.

im sad to see a skyscrapes inside moscows center....you have a beautiful architecture...dont ruin it.....all cities should follow Paris example with building a skyscrapes city outiside (la defance)...to keep the historical center beautifull...

Both skyscrapes are amazing but don't quite fit i think......
(im from a city where everybody in the past years did everything the could to ruin the neoclassic architecture of Athens, so now my city is a mixture of beautifull buildings from 2000 BC, romantic buildings from 1850s and ungly ones from 1960s)

It's not a center. It's 5km away from Moscow kremlin and about 2km from historical center. Comparing to 7km of La Defence from Louvre. And La Dafence borders with historical center, while Moscow has 2km modern zone. Paris historical center is a lot bigger.
