Moscow reclaims Europe`s tallest building
Moscow: Moscow is reclaiming bragging rights for having Europe`s tallest building after losing the distinction for a few months to London.
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.
