Mercury CT is the tallest in Europe.

The Fed tower complex never achieved that.

The West tower of it is 249m high and the east tower is NOW about 270m high but will raise till 360m.
The spire in the middle is planned to reach 509m.
I has a new contractor called "Enka". Restart starts in 01. Feb.2013


The Mercury CT is now 339m tall.

Haha, those are vents, not cladding. There will be only one row of this.

I have fallen in love with the shape of the tower. It can look completely different depending on what angle you're viewing it from.

I saw from those last few photos what appears to be ESB-esque lighting to be illuminating the wall. (forgot what the term's called)

Also, IMO, this building and Moscow University epitomize the grand character of the Russian people. But, Evolution Tower might one day balance out the sheer strength this building appears to have, for good or for worse.

Such an extreme beauty. And as you say, looks totally different from all angles.
