Skybean is correct.

The CN Tower is the World's Tallest Freestanding Structure eclipsing everything that is not a cable-supported tv mast. It is true that Ostankino was to be increased after the fire but there is no evidence that it was. Ostankino is 540m.

The CN Tower itself will be surpassed by Burj Dubai, which will be at least 800m tall and is presently under construction.
