Not really. First of all, Russia Tower is offices, so it won't be in the running for the world's tallest all-residential title that CS is going for. Also, it's 612 meters, and because of the 2000 ft height limit in the US, CS can't go higher than 610 meters (2000 ft).

I suppose they could be in competition for which will top out first, though.

What time is it now in Australia? Here it's about 11 pm (23:00) on the tenth, and you posted this a few hours ago marked as the eleventh.
