I found this interesting. The new tower Called Mercury City Tower in Moscow is the tallest skyscraper in Europe. Sveta and I have watched this business center rise from the ground over the years and I guess that we never realized that it was going to be so tall. I found a paragraph below from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia…

Sveta and I were just talking about how they played games and said they did not have the money to finish these towers, when the worlds financial crises hit several years ago. Russians just scoffed at them and when the question was asked, “Why? and Where is the money?” Things quieted down and the building continued… 🙂

Mercury City Tower (Russian: Меркурий Сити Тауэр) is the tallest skyscraper in Europe, currently under construction in the Moscow International Business Center of Moscow, Russia. Construction started in late 2005, and the tower is expected to top out in September 2012 and to be completed by the end of 2012. Initially planned to stand at 332 m (1,089 ft) with 70 floors, and 5 levels underground, the tower’s top was modified during construction on 23 July 2012 in order to reach 75 floors and to culminate at 338.82 m (1,111.6 ft) as confirmed on 10 August 2012.

PS: Mercury City’s reign as Europe’s tallest skyscraper won’t last long, however. Its rival next door is the under-construction Federation Tower, set to reach 506 meters when it’s completed next year…
