CN Tower (but it doesn't count), so it goes to the nearby 1st Canadian Place in Toronto's Financial District.

The tallest building I've seen is Eiffel Tower, the tallest office building I've seen is 1 Canada Square in London.

The highest building i've NEVER seen? There's lots of buildings i've NEVER seen. But i think you mean "ever" seen.

The tallest building I've ever seen i guess would be the CN tower in Toronto. But if you don't consider that a building I guess the First Canadian Place building would be the tallest actual building i've seen.

I have been to Shanghai, Taipei, Hong Kong, NY (pre 9-11), and Chicago. So I have been to most of the world's premier skyscraper cities. I think the tallest building I have never seen is the Petronas Towers in KL. That will change when the Burj Dubai is completed, I don't forsee myself going there anytime soon.

Ive seen loads of tall buildings (CN tower, Shanghai financial center, sears tower, empire state etc) but the building that seemed the tallest when looking at it was the Eiffel tower. The difference in scale between it and the rest of the city is really spectacular!

Never seen???
That would be the Burj Dubai.

If you mean, the tallest, that I have ever seen, then it must be the Eiffel Tower, I guess.

The highest towers I have seen is the Empire State Building.

But i don't know, which is the highest floor I was standing in:

Rockefeller Center Observation Deck, 63th Floor of the Empire State Building or the observation deck of Fernsehturm in Berlin.

Also I was more confused as he had made the mistake 3 times, but then I saw he was not an english speaking forumer so maybe he does mean 'ever'

If that is the case...then the top 3 I have seen are...

ESB
Bank of America
Chrysler

Hehe, someone who gets it. I was wondering the same.

For me the Eiffel Tower.
