Well...Toronto held on for the record for an amazing 30ish years....and I don't think any one tower in the 21 century will hold it for as long as the CN did.....that said....can't wait to see this baby reach the 600 metre mark

Well actually yes there has been and it beats cn tower the great empire state building held a record from 1931 to 1972 which is 41 years so theres been a tower in the 21 century that held it longer then the cn tower
and my opinon the empire state building is 50 x better then the cn tower
