Correction for CN Tower, Toronto.

http://www.skyscraperpage.com/cities/?buildingID=21

The skyscraperPage diagram has changed the towers
primary structural type from tower to highrise.
that's wrong, I have no idea of why this tower should
count as a highrise.

Even the Emporis database reckon it as a tower (telecommunications tower)
http://www.emporis.com/en/wm/bu/?id=...toronto-canada

"The precise height of the tower is 1,815 feet and 5 inches.
- The tower is comprised of two main observation decks: the lower and larger SkyPod at 1,150 ft (351 m), and the higher but smaller Space Deck at 1,465 ft (447 m)."

From Emporis.

I think buildings over 12 floors should count as a highrise, not
telecommunications towers.

If the tower was highrise it would have been in the "ten tallest buildings link"
link but it isn't.
Can you please change the tower's structural type back to "tower"?
Cause it's quite annoying when I search for todays 25 tallest highrises,
then I see 24 buildings and 1 tv-tower.

--Thanks.--

then, by your own definition, it does have more than enough storeys to qualify as a highrise

TORONTO - HOME OF THE TALLEST BUILDING IN THE WORLD

WOOT!!!!

Well the Ostankino Tele Tower in Moscow has
120 "floors" but still count as a tower, why should this not count as a tower too?

I agree with Bergenser, it's a Tower not a Highrise.

From wikipedia:
Quote:
A high-rise is a tall building or structure. Normally, the function of the building is added, for example high-rise apartment building or high-rise offices.
And if you go to the Wikipedia page for the word Tower there's a huge picture of the CN Tower.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tower

There's also a pic of the Sears Tower though...

honestly, I agree 100% with you and haven't a clue as to why its stature was changed

How many floors does the tower really have anyway? I can think of about 7. There are about two at the base, at least three in the main pod, and two more in the upper pod.

The main use of it is communication tower, the propose to built this structure, and seems to be a tower, btw one of the tallest in world, not a highrise for offices and residences as the form is not floor upper floor one behind each other. equally spaced and repeated. This is a structure with a tower with different pods in different highs, so for me it is a tower.
