What language is this article supposed to be?

Tower C[edit]

Where is this designation coming from? On the official site there is no mentioning of a "third tower".--Sascha. 09:53, 26 May 2007 (UTC)

Once there was a mention. It was called C. Elk Salmon 11:21, 26 May 2007 (UTC)
But not any more? And it is stays stated there that the complex consists of two, not three, towers. I think we should find another wording for that thing in the middle.--Sascha. 17:58, 26 May 2007 (UTC)
How about the central spire?--Sascha. 10:09, 28 May 2007 (UTC)
It's not central. It is part of Tower A as it's makes full structural complex height. Spire couldn't be used alone as it's not a building, while the spire is a part of architecture and structure. Its height should have to be included to Tower A. Elk Salmon 12:55, 28 May 2007 (UTC)
I'am just looking how English-speaking professionals call it and see only the (central) spire, that's why I'm proposing to call it that. This is how one American company (involved in the construction of the F.) refers to it:
A 430-meter stiletto-like central spire connects these two sail-shaped buildings.
And this is from the BBC: The tower will soar to 340 metres (1,115 feet), attached to a stiletto-like central spire. There will be a neighboring 53-storey tower.
"Architectural Record": Two asymmetrical glass towers will stand on a stylobate which also supports a centrally positioned spire perforated by elevator shafts. The antenna atop the spire rises to the height of 1,425 feet. The towers will contain 84 and 57 floors each.
So it's linguistically and technically correct, for such an unusual building. Tower C is not. Tchoban himself calls the central thing Antenna in German, but that is, well, German, not English.
--Sascha. 13:33, 28 May 2007 (UTC)
He could call it as he want. But technically it should have to be stuck to a building. The spire is an architectural part of the complex and it couldn't disappear. It's not a mast/antenna! Elk Salmon 22:23, 28 May 2007 (UTC)

Confused...[edit]

Is there any word as to why construction is stopped? Or is that just because it is night time right now, and they're starting again in the morning? --SteelersFanUK06 HereWeGo2010! 00:43, 14 April 2010 (UTC)

A 509 m skyscraper or not?[edit]

There are no references in the article so it is hard to tell. However, I think there are two skyscrapers: The under construction 360 m, 93 storey Vostok Tower; and the already completed 242 m, 63 storey Zapad Tower. And between them, partially supported by both of the skyscrapers, is a 509 m observation tower also under construction. When completed, Vostok Tower might qualify as the tallest building in Europe, but the observation tower is shorter then the similar purposed Ostankino Tower. That is what the CTBUH suggests, and therefore implying that the observation tower does not have enough fully occupied floors to qualify as a skyscraper (see the definitions here).

Or is it three skyscrapers? Astronaut (talk) 18:24, 22 July 2013 (UTC)
