Its around 33ft shorter than the Chrysler Building, which is my second fav New York building after the Empire State. Cant wait to revisit.

Tallest in the European Union.

The tallest building on the entire continent of Europe* will be the Mercury Tower in Moscow.

* coincidentally The Entire Continent of Europe was name of a band in which I played when I was a teenager, which later morphed into the only slightly less obscure Murrumbidgee Whalers

not true
The fact if the Shard will be the tallest en Europe doesn't depend upon the Federation tower.
The Federation Tower will have the same destiny as the Shard. It will be surpassed by a taller skyscraper eventually.
The question was if the Shard would become the tallest skyscraper in Europe. This means "when it is constructed" since no skyscrapers can be the tallest forever
So the question about the possibility for the Shard to become the tallest in Europe depends only upon the Mercury Tower and the speed of the Shard spire construction

Sorry for the off-topic! What I meant to say was that, to me at least, a skyscraper is more about quality rather than its size. And The Shard has that awesome quality, in both materials used for construction (especially glass) and its design.
