Yep, for a brief time after it was built, it was the tallest structure
in the world.

Until recently, that crown belonged to the KVLY tower near Fargo,
N.D., at 2,063 feet, which is still the tallest structure in the
western hemisphere, but lost its world title to the Burj Khalifa
(formerly Burj Dubai) in Dubai.
