Tallest towers?[edit]

I just read that the Riga Radio and TV Tower is the 11th tallest tower in the world. It is shorter than this tower. Is this the 10th tallest tower or??? Kukini

Wrong height?[edit]

The text says that this tower is a bit shorter (by 30 meters) than the Ostankino Tower. However, its height is 385 meters, while Ostankino Tower is 540 meters high. Something is wrong here. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Gurarie (talkcontribs) 07:55, 1 January 2007 (UTC).


Only PART lattice[edit]

It seems wrong to refer to this as a lattice structure (and hence the tallest free-standing lattice structure in the world) because the actual lattice section makes up approximately 45-50% of its total height. The Eiffel Tower for one is 300.86m of lattice steel construction, and that is definitely taller than the lattice section of the Kiev Tower. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 222.246.56.217 (talk) 07:54, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Still the tallest?[edit]

Is this tower still the tallest freestanding steel lattice in the world? The recent completion of the Tokyo Sky Tree (634 m) and the Canton Tower (600 m), which both have a lattice like structure and are made of steel, would suggest that the claim aof being the tallest freestanding steel lattice in the world could be challenged.
