But if you count the spire on Federation, Shard would then be fourth tallest building in Europe
If you DON'T count the spire, the Federation Tower (East) will have 360 metres that means it will be the tallest in Europe still.

Thank you mr. MyXiN
So the last open level is #70 and the blind top is equivalent to the height of 11 more levels, the last 10 being above City of capitals tower or the cabin of the crane !

It took only 2 weeks to build 2 levels #56 + 57 with twice the actual levels size, but strangely 2 and a half months... to build the last 2 levels #65 + 66 ! So with the former rythm, City of Capitals should have been reached today !

Thanks erdnisloed, I was wondering at what point it overtook City of capitals tower.

I think the shard is at 286meteres currently, quite a bit of work to be done on the currant floor before its finished but it is very narrow so could be done quite quickly.

The Shard goes up faster because there are large pieces of the top that are build at one time.

I agree, the construction methodology of MCT is a little old fashioned but cheap I guess.

The Shard may actually be for a short time the tallest building in Europe. Construction seems to be quicker, and the spire's assembly will add a great deal of height relatively quickly. But that shouldn't be a problem for MCT...

Now that the building has reached its tallest and the narrowest section, we can expect a very speedy construction for this building.
