Can ur city beat this!

Since we are talking about tallest structures, i thought it would be neat to mention Mt.Everest (Tallest structure build by Nature) in Nepal


Age of Everest:
Everest was formed about 60 million years ago
Elevation:
29,035 (8850m)

Currently the tallest structure is CN Tower in Toronto, Canada.
it's about 553 m
8850/553 = 16 (so we need 15 more CN Tower)
Well, still long way to go to beat NATURE...LOL

The tallest building in Groningen the Netherlands is the Martinitoren, completed in 1482 (97m).




This is as good as it gets skyscraper-wise in Groningen. The Gasunie building (87m)




The interior is quite spectacular:





Only the first pic is mine, the Gasunie ones I had to google.
