Talk:Rialto Towers

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search


Nurg, I think it is the tallest in the southern hemisphere, I'm not aware of it's being surpassed. What I'm referring to however, is the tallest skyscraper, not including observation towers, such as Sydney Tower, which is taller. Perhaps what I had was ambiguous in that way, however, as far as I know, the Rialto is still the hemisphere's tallest skyscraper.

You're absolutely correct and I've clarified the article accordingly. I also added it to List of skyscrapers Nurg 05:58, 8 Jan 2004 (UTC)

Call for comment[edit]

Does anyone think that the height navigation infobox is worthwhile (I added it a while ago, but am looking for comment as to whether it should be used en masse). I was going to include a row for ages as well (see User:Hypernovean/Design for an example including it), but decided it would be too difficult to fill in. Otherwise, the problem I've seen since creating this is that as new buildings are built (and here in Melbourne that's quite common nowadays), the tables would be thrown out of whack fairly often. It would be high-maintainence. I'm starting to have second thoughts, but does anyone think they are a good idea? TPK 14:20, 7 Jul 2004 (UTC)

Terrorist Target?[edit]

I thought I heard around the time of the 2001 terrorist attacks that this building was an intended target. Is this true? - if it is it should warrant a sentence or two. (JROBBO 08:40, 2 May 2006 (UTC))

Uploaded Image[edit]

I've uploaded an image of the rialto towers, but i'm not sure if it is needed, if anyone wants to add it to the article or use it, its here

Height ranking[edit]

The follwong passage, from the article's introduction, makes little sense, as Toronto, Canada must certainly be considered part of North America: "At the time of its completion it was the 23rd tallest building in the world and the second tallest outside of North America (behind First Canadian Place in Toronto, Canada)." — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 12 April 2012

I removed the whole paragraph as trivial and unreferenced. --ELEKHHT 00:36, 12 April 2012 (UTC)
