eeeeeeee I can not belive I am having this conversation. I thought the WWW was suppose to be informative ? Well in this case that is not so, if any thing the WWW is only confusing fact and 30 years of history.

I thought it was common knowledge about the CN Tower ?

Any ways here are the links.

At 553.33 m (1,815 ft, 5 inches), it is the World's Tallest Building
Official CN Tower web site.

Enough of that.

Well, I suppose I appreciate my thread being resurrected. Anyhow, here's how it breaks down (in defence of my title):

Tallest Building: Taipei 101
Tallest Free-Standing Structure: CN Tower (no cables, but not fully inhabitable, only top)
Tallest cable-supported structure: Some broadcast antennae somewhere.

Anyhow, I said "The tallest building in the world" and I certainly stand by that.
