Meh, I'll stick with the CN Tower in Toronto, world's tallest free-standing structure for the past 31 years. The observation level and the glass floor are pretty awesome. The best is going outside at 342 metres up and feeling that breeze.

Oh yeh, i did a project on this when i was in Year 8. I had to read books and such about it and i was told from the book i was reading that the Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia were the tallest buildings in the world. This is what i found on the internet about it.

Skyscraper buffs disagree on whether features like flagpoles, antennas, and spires should be included when measuring building height. Also under dispute is the question of what, exactly, constitutes a building. Technically, observation towers and communications towers are considered structures, not buildings, because they are not habitable. They do not have residential or office space.

Soaring 1,670 feet (509 meters), the Taipei 101 Tower in Taipei, Taiwan appears to be the world's tallest building. But the Taipei 101 Tower's massive 60-foot spire contributes to much of that height. Before the Taipei 101 Tower was completed, the Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia were described as the tallest buildings in the world. But, like the Taipei 101 Tower, the Petronas Twin Towers get much of their height from spires, not from usable space.

If you count only habitable space and measure from the sidewalk level of the main entrance to the structural top of building (excluding flagpoles and spires), then Chicago's Sears Tower, built in 1974, may still be the tallest building in the world.

But none of these buildings will keep their rankings for long. Even taller buildings are on the drawing board. Freedom Tower at the new World Trade Center in New York City is expected to rise 541 meters (1,776 feet) tall, including its enormous spire. However, if spires, flagpoles, and antennas can be counted when we measure building heights, perhaps rankings of the World's Tallest Buildings should include all man-made structures, whether or not they contain habitable space. In this case, the CN Tower in Canada is the world's tallest building. The communications tower and tourist attraction measures 553.33 meters (1,815 ft., 5 inches) tall.

So i guess it really depends who measures the building?

Well the Taipei 101 is the tallest skyscraper, the CN Tower is the tallest tower/freestanding structure. The difference? Who knows, its all definitions.

Taipei 101 is 509.2m or 1,671 ft for you non-metric people. CN Tower is 553.33m or 1,815 ft.
