I've no doubt that owners of CN would increase the height to stay above this tower. When the Ostankino Tower caught fire and renovations were in place, the Russians there stated that they may beat CN to over 560m. CN officials stated that they will not relinquish that title since building higher would mean better tv reception and more money for the Greater Toronto Area.

The CN Tower was designed to have a height increase for revenue purposes. The final possible height? According to the boys at CN....just over 2000 ft or 610m.

Yes, it is true that records are meant to be broken and CN holds the title for a long time but the gang at CN won't give up without a fight and I see a higher CN Tower to at least recapture the observation and telecommunications record.

Burj Dubai is underway and will put a decisive end to all.

YES, and I'm very happy about that. I thought it sucked that the tallest "structures" on the planet were either antennaes or... antennaes with observation decks. Finally it'll be a habitable building, not an antennae, not a solar tower, not a space elevator...

So... I think it's time to move this thread to "Construction" since the backhoe arrived on the scene.

sad news for jakarta tower :



It seems they have changed the height of the new tv-tower in guangzhou again! now they are making it taller, the last decision was to make it 450m now they have increased the height to 610m...

The article:
Guangzhou, capital of Guangdong province, will harbor the world's tallest building - the to-be-built Guangzhou TV tower will reach 610 meters tall, according to the Tower's construction management center.

The project will cover an area of 175, 000 square meters, with a total investment of 2.215 billion yuan. The first phase of the project will be finished by 2007


finish faster than jakarta tower ^

wat i like about this tower is the fact that they've managed to incorporate traditional indonesian architecture into it, while at the same time giving it a modern twist. put together, the pointy hat-like "roof" along with the three columns, closely resembles those traditional indonesian huts on stilts.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I doubt they'll be able to finish Guangzhou tower in 2 years...the article says "Phase 1" only, without specifying what it means...
