CN Tower, Toronto
The 553m / 1815ft high CN Tower was constructed between 1972 and 1976. This modern landmark beside Lake Ontario is more than two and half times the height of Stuttgart's television tower (which, built just 20 years earlier, was the prototype of all such towers). About two-thirds of the way up the Tower (335m / 1100ft) the seven-story "Sky Pod" houses a revolving restaurant, and observation platforms from which, in clear weather, views extend for 120km / 75mi.
