The main reason it’s famous is becuase it is in Canada. Lucky Canadians have a reason to brag. They don’t have trump - lemur

I truly believe it's famous because it held the record for the World's tallest tower for 34 years, from 1975 to 2009. And not because it is in Canada. - Metal_Treasure

6 Burj Khalifa

Immensely famous but I am not sure it is technically a tower in the proper sense generally I think a tower is a building where most of the height is not inhabitable like the CN tower or the Tokyo tower.

My idea was to talk about inhabitable towers but people added buildings with offices and apartments, biblical towers, fictional towers, etc. What can I do? So I added item descriptions to them, too, and even images to some of them, since they were already on the list. - Metal_Treasure

34 Orthanc

@whoever added this - did you mean the fictional tower in the Tolkien works?
If so, "according to J. R. R. Tolkien's legendarium, it was built during the end of the Second Age by men of Gondor out of four many-sided columns of rock joined together by an unknown process and then hardened. No known weapon could harm it. Although the Ents could split ordinary stone with ease, their assault on the tower only left a few scratches and chips on its surface. Orthanc rose up to more than 500 feet (150 metres) above the plain of Isengard, and ended in four sharp peaks. Its only entrance was at the top of a high stair, and above that was a small window and balcony." - Metal_Treasure
