Tallest building in your country

As you probably know 435-meters/1427-feet high Milad Tower in Tehran is already the tallest building in Iran, I think this is also the tallest one in the Middle East after Burj Khalifa in Dubai.

It is also good to mention the head of Milad Tower is the biggest of its kind in the world. Moreover, the largest revolving restaurant belongs to Milad Tower.

all the best to any post that adds here but notice quotes of height with towers or buildings to the tip of a spike or aerial on top.....I am frustrated that here in Australia a building in one state has emblazoned on it's observation deck floor a height measurement for the top of a prong way above that deck......we all are proud of our tallest structures but one day I would like to see a diagram of them all lined up.......eyes will see reality more than illusions of grandeur .........

You're still so annoyed that Q1 is taller than Eureka? Someone had to build a supertall and Melbourne couldn't do it. Oh, and it's a spire, sunshine.

this thread is "Tallest building in your country" or "Tallest structure in your country"??

because 435m Milad Tower in Tehran, CN tower 553m are the structures, not the buildings.

And this is tallest building in your country by pinnacle height ; by spire height ; or roof height ?

People still don't know the difference between a structure and a building?

The debate rages, and the plethora of flagpoles down under contributes mightly to the debate.

Q1 is clearly much taller than BMO

Well it isn't my fault you guys only build boring flat topped buildings. Get with the times. Spires aren't simply about giving a tower a bit of extra height. Anyway, argue it all you like, but CTBUH considers spires as part of the overall height therefore Q1 > BMO :p
