Im not saying this is the best in the world, however, it's an interesting design.

Spinnaker Tower 170m, Portsmouth, UK.

I'm surprised there wasn't a thread for this already. Besides the ones mentioned the Sky Tree in Tokyo and Oriental Pearl in Shanghai come to mind. There's a rather good one in Tehran as well... I think?

It will come off as impartial but the CN Tower is the gold standard in my book. Tallest thing on earth for 34 years and a marvel of engineering for its time. The proportions are perfect and the new lighting feature is terrific. It's a bit of a surprise how iconic it became. The CN Tower is one thing Toronto got very right.

That's a 47 floor condo in the upper right!
