Looks like a very transparent skyscraper, I hate it. (The transparancy, not the actual scraper)

Man I wish they would hurry up and attach the last bits. It would be wicked if this building could top up and snag tallest building in Europe for a short time before Mercury City catches up.

Yeah it wouldn't last long as Europe's tallest, but the record would be there nevertheless. That's only going to happen if they can put up the top shard frames before Mercury City moves past 305.7 m.

No matter how tall Moscow skyscrapers are the shard will be still more popular and get more attention because it is in London

you can brag about visitor stats when they are released. Not very useful otherwise.
