The CN Tower is the 5th tallest free-standing structure in the world! Constructed from 1973 to 1976, the CN Tower in Toronto, Ontario, Canada was, and still is a record breaking landmark. It was the tallest tower in the world up until the Burj Khalifa surpassed it in height back in 2007.
Some current world records (from Wikipedia) include:
- World's highest glass floor panelled elevator @ 346 metres (1,135 ft)
- World's longest metal staircase with 2,579 steps
- World's highest and largest revolving restaurant @ 351 metres (1,152 ft)
The CN Tower serves many purposes besides being a landmark attraction that lights up the Toronto skyline. The tower broadcasts television, radio, and telecommunication signals to the surrounding area, and it has an observation deck, complete with a glass floor.
