Checking in on the 10 Tallest Skyscrapers Under Construction in Europe

Ever wondered which skyscrapers in Europe are the tallest? Well, building data provider Emporis recently revealed a study in which they discovered that Moscow is steadily maintaining its status as the skyscraper capital of Europe. Already home to four of Europe's top five tallest buildings, Moscow has six of the 10 tallest structures currently under construction.

Moscow may be full of looming structures, but if St. Petersburg's 463m Lakhta finishes construction as planned in 2018, it will become the new tallest building in Europe. Check out the full list below, which is rounded out by three buildings being built in Istanbul.
