Offices are only at the bottom floors, not in the tower, so yeah, for now it is the highest residental tower in EU, followed by Złota 44 in Warsaw.

Isn't Triumph Palace in Moscow residential?

Also Sapphire of Istanbul only got a mall at the bottom, the tower is just residences.

moreover, City of Capitals, the first supertall in Europe, is also residential

as far as at least 85% of the square is residential, the whole building is counted as residential. that is logical since nobody would like to live on 1-5 floors( or even higher) in dense urban area, so there's a need to include shops etc. to sell the property.
So, Sky Tower is residential

We were talking more about the European Union, I think .

(Oh, if Britain gets out of it, Warsaw/Wroclaw will hold the title for longer... )

How often do they want to tell us that. This is not a thread for Asia or America.
This is about the best skylines in Europe.

And including not only Moscow,
but also London, Istanbul, Frankfurt, Paris and Warsaw.

Sorry for this is not (yet ) one of the best European skylines - before the crisis there was a plan to build a 285m high tower, now in the following years 4-5 towers will be build -. I post it because it's a great picture, something else than Rotterdam and London and of course because it is my city
Rotterdam fireworks kicks Warsaw fireworks ass.

Indeed, Frankfurt is not the same level of quality as London - it's better.

London's skyscrapers are neither better nor worse than other cities. Please Give me an example of what London's skyscrapers makes better than other. This is bullshit.
