Guiness Officials: Structures which had been marked by the Guiness Book of Records

Post images and some info of ANY kind of structures which were mentioned in the Guiness Records. Some buildings that are not in the last record book, may appear but with it's exact period.

I'll begin with The Highest Hotel In The World [1999 & till now]:

The Grand Hyatt Shanghai in Pudong, Shanghai, China
"The Grand Hyatt Shanghai in Pudong, Shanghai, China, is the highest hotel in the world. It occupies the top 35 floors of the 88-storey 420-m. (1378-ft.) tall Jin Mao Tower, the tallest building in China and the third tallest in the world."

I think it is a shame, that the following constructions are NOT in the Guinness Book:
- Pylons of Pearl River Crossing, tallest electricity pylons in the world ( http://en.structurae.de/structures/d...fm?ID=s0017587 and http://en.structurae.de/structures/d...fm?ID=s0017586 )
- Radio Tower Muehlacker, tallest construction ever built of wood ( http://en.structurae.de/structures/d...fm?ID=s0012456 )

Radio Tower Muehlacker, tallest constructionever built of wood, height: 190 metres. Built in 1933/34, destroyed in 1945.

- Radio Tower Gliwice, tallest existing construction built of wood ( http://www.structurae.net/structures...fm?id=s0012024 )

Radio Tower Gliwice, height: 118 metres, tallest existing tower built of wood
