WOW! Hockey sticks on top of CN Tower's spire to reclaim the title, now that would be a truly Canadian tower!

It looks like a pretty cool tower, but I must admit that it looks a lot like a syringe.

Omega Base Mast is a guyed mast and is Australia's & the southern hemisphere's tallest structure at 427m. It was built in 1982 and was the last of 8 Omega stations established around the world by the US government. It hasn't been in use since 1997 when the Omega network was shut down.

Here's a thread for more info. There are plenty of conpiracy theories about it

Thank you Oriolus, but still I wouldn't count that mast. Would be great to get a photo thought.

I'm not counting the Omega Mast as a tower - its just a mast. Omega Base Mast is the tallest STRUCTURE in the southern hemisphere. Jakarta Tower will overtake Omega to become the tallest STRUCTURE in the Southern Hemisphere and overtake CN Tower to become the tallest TOWER in the world.

Great tower, original and unique, not another hamburger spire ripoff, and this one is also almost like a skyscraper. Great one anyway.

Yup, I agree with every point.
But it really won't be hard to overtake that title for the Cn tower again.

I believe this is the winning design that was supposed to be the Jakarta Tower, by Jahn. Unfortunately it was always going to be too expensive/ financially not feasible and so they opted to build its present design instead.

after this tower is built i wouldn't be surprised if the CN tower increases it's height. afterall, didn't the designers say that the CN towers height could be increased if it's 'world tallest title' was taken? it may go over 600m!! and the CN tower has a public observation floor 50m's higher than the jakarta tower's highest floor.

i will watch the jakarta tower construction and this IS good news for the southern hemisphere. i just prefer and admire the CN tower more.
