From russian forum:

ОKO | 30 m. 9 fl. | 244,9 m. 49 fl. | 3**,*m **fl

More 2 floors to T/O
for the lower building, maybe current height is 230 m +

For big building expect increase to max 360 m. Current height around 220 m. 54 fl. Nobody knows max, floors.
The Russian moderator mr. MyXiN said: In that area buildings max 360 m. If I understood correctly.

Unless you don't care about the design being ruined, then yes. A tapering building cannot simply be increased or decreased in height without disrupting the angle of the taper.

I'm guessing they will pull a Mercury City Tower and put up a big black ugly advertisement screen at the last second to increase the height.

Maybe they can carry on with the taper and when it's finished, they could add another one?

The shorter tower has the best cladding in the entire IBC. I'm glad the height was raised from the 630' that was originally listed on this thread.

This will soon overtake the Federation West Tower and Imperia Tower.

The smaller tower can't have too much farther to go? Near T/O now?

Judging by the taper, I'd say it's on the final floor, it it hasn't topped out already.
