It's very good to have the tallest tower in the region, and I'm very glad too.

But for a sec I thought, Is this really a need for Jakarta and Indonesia?, Very big capital of investment. Instead of building this, I think the government should be cleary focussing on improving life qualities of people who live in remote areas, rural Islands or even in the big cities it's self.

Just my opinion though, nothing serious.

Chad, this project is fully funded by the private sector...so it doens't affect the government's budget for everything else. Besides, the construction of this tower will employ thousands of workers over a period of 5 years.

CN Tower is 553.3m isn't it so it wont take to many hockey sticks at all for them to beat 558m & claim back the title of worlds tallest tower :)

When completed Jakarta Tower will also be the tallest structure in the southern hemisphere, eclipsing the Omega Base Mast at Gippsland (Victoria, Australia) at 427m.
