TV Towers are all so beautiful and handsome. The first modern concrete TV Tower was completed in Stuttgart in 1956.

The function of KL Tower isn't just for observation platform for tourist.

It is first and foremost a broadcasting tower as it is owned by our largest telecommunication company TM (which has its own Supertall too - Menara TM) which had its earlier latticed-steel tower adjescent to the current tower replaced as it is too short.

So yea......the broadcasting spire which houses various antennas and such is well over 400m (KL Tower sits on top of a 90m hill) and there's not that many buildings around KL that would block it at least for the next 50 years. Also the top 2 floors houses broadcasting offices and facilities.

To recap.....the primary function of the tower which is for broadcasting isn't obsolete yet so it would still be there for decades to come.
