Anyone know about viewing towers?

Something like the Eiffel and the Space Needle? These aren't being built much, it seems. Probably an inefficient use of land.

I wonder if anyone has an opinion on the possible price and viability of a Space Needle-like structure today.

Space Needle is on 35m by 35m lot and is 180m tall.

For my project I am thinking 400m tall. I don't know what size lot that would require.

Thx

The CN Tower, at about 550 m. tall, has an approximately 50 x 50 m. footprint, for what it's worth.
