ISLAMABAD | The Eiffel Tower Building | 400m+ | 1500ft+ | 87 fl | Pro



Personally, I hate the idea and the fact that it rips off Eiffel. But I thought I'd post this here and see what others have to say.

Well, it's not as if it hasn't been done before...

There is the Blackpool Tower:

the Las Vegas Eiffel Tower:

and the Legoland Eiffel Tower!:

It's just another one of these, but taller!

But whether it should actually be called 'The Eiffel Tower' and be taller than the masterpiece itself is really quite debateable. Eiffel gets no say in this.
