Well, i dont mean to be picky, but when I count Burj Dubai, this tower, Mecca, Chicago spire and Russia Tower, that alone would demote CN Tower to 6th. Adding PAGCOR bumps it to 7th...

And dont forget the Sumida tower will be finished by 2011, meaning CN tower would be 8th...

Theres also the possibility of other towers being built, like that tower in Busan, Shanghai center, Australian Solar tower or even Al Burj. In 5 years, its possible CN Tower might not even be top 10!

The fact that it has been tallest for 30 years is precisely the reason for the interest.

Karachi port tower is also taller than CN at the proposed 1947' height, however this project together with Pagcor and Sumida tower are still yet to confirm, so let us just not include this first.

And yes thanks for pointing out, I realised CN would drop off from the top 5 tallest free-standing position in just 4 years after losing that status


Its something sad for a structure that reign the skyline for over 3 decades.

when I first saw this tower, I am abominated by the design, but after adjusting myself to it, it is starting to look really nice now. One of the best structures under construction in the world.
