The mixed office and residential tower called Mercury City has topped out at 338 meters (1,109 feet), officials of its development company said today.
The tower, sheathed in copper-coloured glass, actually became Europe's tallest in September while still under construction, when it exceeded London's 310-meter (1,017-foot) Shard, according to the construction information company Emporis.
Mercury City's reign is likely to be almost as short.
It's next-door to the under-construction Federation Tower, which is to reach 506 meters (1,660 feet) when it's completed next year.
Both are in a sprawling development called Moscow City that also holds two other buildings that once were Europe's tallest.
Moscow: Moscow is reclaiming bragging rights for having Europe's tallest building after losing the distinction for a few months to London.
