No I haven't been to Sydney but since it's one of the most iconic freestanding structures, I would like to put it in there.

Nouvellecosse I made a mistake, it's 400m, not ft

Almaty Tower

The Almaty Tower in the Kazakh city of Almaty was built between 1975 and 1983 and is one of the tallest free-standing towers in the world. The tower is located on high slopes of Kok Tyube mountain (Kok Tyube is Kazakh for: "greener hill"). It is 371.5 m (1073 ft) tall; its 114 m metal aerial reaches 1000 meters above sea level. The tower has two operational observation decks at the height of 146 m and 252 m, which are accessible by two high-speed elevators. It is however not open to the public. The tower was built by the architects Terziev, Savchenko, Akimov and Ostroumov. Since Almaty is particularly vulnerable to earthquakes, the TV tower was designed to withstand earthquakes up to a strength of 10 on the Richter scale.

One freestanding structure I like was the planned Fort Canning Tower in Singapore. It was never built but it would look impressive for the city's skyline.
