Great update, there's a high chance for it to be T/O before the completion of The Shard. Heck, it's still going to be whole 80m taller than The Shard.

Pardon?! The shard's roof is 305 metres. This one 322 metres. So make that 17 metres taller.

It's unclear for know. It's possibly +326,7, not +322,0. But this one has got spire, so 380 or 365. Final height of spire will be decided later. So anyway it's between 60 and 75 meters taller than Shard.

Nah,i don't think fair at all to count spires-especially antennae looking ones-unless an obvious substantial continuation of the building.
The shard appears solid profile all the way up to 309 metres.So IMO 21 metres difference only
Looks an good scraper though.

We do count architectural spires here on SSC, just like CTBUH doing it. And it's got a solid profile way up to the tip of spire as well.

Anyway, don't forget, Shard has top floor at just 244m, anything above is just a very tall wall around the roof hiding technical equipment So Shard isn't that pure as well.

Highest occupiable floor on Mercury is 69th +293,04. Highest level +296,74m. City of Capitals Moscow has highest level at +294,65m.

Erm
Roof height of MCT 322m - 326m.
Roof height of LBT 305m

...there is no doubt that the profile of the Shard is utterly complete and graceful from bottom to top...as opposed to say a larger profile them thin spire to top off another umpteen metres.
LBT viewing gallery is at 244 metres (just lol,and a bonus for it being public viewing gallery-not tooo many scrapers with public galleries at such a great height around the world),yes. The building continues with 15 radiator floors to a 305 metre roof .Actual building,floors and such.No getting around that
Anyways,i llike this tower (renders),especially because of it's height.Nice one Moscow.And City of Capitals is pretty awesome,different.Very futuristic.

Shard's roof - +248 radiators is just an equipment installed on the roof.

Mercury spire isn't just to top off meters. It is the mega column going off the tower. It carries supporting functions through the wall tower from foundation. It's a part of supporting structure.

No my friend.Shard roof is officially 305.6 metres.
And the roof of this one is officially (approx) 324 metres. And as i said,the profile of shard is a continuation right to the tip (not building then ''column''/spire etc whether it's functional or not).But hey,it's a little taller than Shard,thats cool with me 8-)

Spire counts whether some people like it or not - or think it's unfair. So 70 meters taller than the Shard (plus, minus).

Nothing to do with ''like'' or ''dislike''. Officially,building heights are only to what is determined as ''roof'' height.(So) that being about 20 metres in this case. ;-) Maybe somebody will go up the completed Shard and stick a 71 metre stick/spire atop it.That would settle it ? No,course not.

What are you trying to prove? Official height of Mercury is 380, Shard 310. That's it. However, whether it's 20 meters or 70 higher, doesn't really matter, because it's simply higher.

Not trying to prove anything. It's a fact that the roof height is 20 metres difference.
As i said,i don't care about it being a bit higher tut. I like this tower.Please,end of

CUL made it clear very right.

Speaking of height
http://realty.lenta.ru/news/2010/06/21/skyscraper/

Moscow authorities gives a green light to increase height of Mercury City Tower. Developer wants to increase it by 15200 sq. m. That's about 7-10 floors more.

Nah sorry.If LBT and MCT were stood side by side,there wouldn't look much in it at all-apart from a thin spire thingy on top of MCT poking higher. :-)
