The tower consists of 60 floors, which means it can not have a height of 400 meters. Here are details on the project on the Internet:
.... The project is now in the stage of coordination, but it is already known that the total area of the tower will make almost 110 thousand sq. m., and it will have over 60 floors: there will be offices and retail premises on the ground floors while other areas will be for apartments. http://thebuilderblog.wordpress.com/...wer-in-moscow/
Tower of Abu Dhabi Plaza in Astana 382-meter consists of 88 floors! There is a difference?

oh, i think The Torch will hold this title for some months, until Princess will be completed.
Princess will be the tallest resi for 3-4 years, then the Pentominium will catch the tiltle
i don't think 23 Marina has a chance, it has slowed down a lot...
