yes, but the building is not finished yet, so the shard can still be considered the tallest finished (built) skyscraper in europe.

It's a very strange situation.
Being the tallest t/o (not completed) skyscraper in Europe Shard has never been taller than the Mercury Tower which is in Europe too.

If you look at the thread for the Shard it says TO which obviously means topped out but I don't believe the interior of the building is anywhere near completion. I noticed another building has COM on it's thread indicating that it is completed. So as Brad said, it is a strange situation because when the Shard really is completed it will be the tallest completed building in Europe for a brief period of time until the Mercury City Tower is completed. I suppose I'm nitpicking though.

The Shard gets to keep both a temporary tallest topped-out building and a temporary tallest completed building in Europe status while MCT lags behind, because the Shard reached/will reach those milestone before MCT, even though the Shard never managed to actually surpass MCT's height at any point in time. MCT will hold all those records eventually so I think it's fair that the Shard gets some record-holder glory for a brief time.

Since all statuses are temporary, what's the difference between 'temporary tallest completed" and 'tallest completed"?

I have always assumed when a building tops out, it should be listed in the official "tallest" rankings. This is what the criteria used to be at the CTBUH. Now they won't list a building in their rankings until it is completed according their criteria.

In my mind, The Shard is currently Europe's tallest until Mercury City tops out.

+1 This tower is beautiful. The cladding is excellent, except for the white lines, which I'm not a huge fan of.
