With the addition of the spire to its top, Varso Tower exceeded the German Commerzbank Tower in Frankfurt (300 meters) by 10 meters and became the EU’s tallest skyscraper. Varso Tower has also overtaken the London Shard (309.6 meters).

In the overall height ranking in Europe, the Warsaw skyscraper comes fifth. It is shorter than four Russian skyscrapers, with the tallest of them being Lakhta Center in Saint Petersburg (462 meters), followed by the Federation Tower in Moscow (347.7 meters), OKO (354 meters) and Mercury City Tower (338.8 meters).

The tallest building in the world is the Burj Khalifa (828 meters) in Dubai, and the second tallest is the Shanghai Tower (632 meters) and the third is the Abraj Al-Bait Towers hotel complex in Mekka (601 meters).

Varso Tower is comprised of three office buildings whose combined area amounts to about 145,000 square meters. Inside of the skyscraper, in addition to offices, there is also a restaurant, bar, hotel, and shopping mall. A viewing terrace will be located at the skyscraper’s topmost, 53rd floor.

Final construction work of Varso Tower is to be completed in 2022.
