Even -35° C is not a problem. Closed space covered by special cloth, some heaters and we have positive temperature inside.

This floor of the MCT is the last chance for the Shard to snag Europe's highest building, however briefly. But it looks like that is not going to happen.

I am actually very glad London has its landmark to celebrate its second wave of worldwide recognition in the world history. The tower is magnificent and beautiful.
Moscow also will have its charm to come yet, but Moscow is so different....

these londoners... in 2040 this tower will look like a historical one or like a soviet achievement may be. while another prominent tower will look outdated. use your time machines right now to check it out if you are not sure you see 2040 in real
p.s. may be mct alone looks weird but it was designed to be a part of moscow ibc

By the way, congratulations Moscow on Europe's tallest. That's fourth in a row so far.

Thank you MyXiN to confirm that MCT became :

the highest tower in Europe on January 17 2012 (but don't know for the next 5 m ! )

and as well that... VitMos won the bottle of vodka

PS : On your former posted diagram, level 70 had 305,62 m instead of your announced 303,20 m. I suppose that it is due to the changes on the construction of the last real levels (like on the hight of level 67 and the shape of the top) that we can notice from this diagram (cf. p. 100).
