THE WORLD'S LONGEST
STANDING STRUCTURE

THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What is the world's longest standing structure?

struc·ture (strkchr)
n.
1. Something made up of a number of parts that are held or put together in a particular way: hierarchical social structure.
2. Something constructed, such as a building.

Now that that's out of the way we'll give you some choices as to the world's longest standing structure:

Contender #1: The Warsaw Radio Mast that was in Poland and stood 646.38 meters or 2,120 feet tall but collapsed in 1991.

Problem: It collapsed.

Contender #2: The KVLY-TV mast in Blanchard, North Dakota which stands 629 meters or 2,063 feet.

Problem: The tower is not self-supported and as a result generally does not qualify, bear in mind that a rope dropped from a balloon is technically a structure, also not self-supported, which could otherwise claim the title of the world's longest structure.

Contender #3: The Petronius Platform in the Gulf of Mexico which covers 610 meters or 2,001 feet from the ocean floor to the top.

Problem: Although the Petronius Platform is a freestanding structure, it is supported by the water and many believe that the part of it underwater should not count just as the underground portions of a building to not count in it's height.

Contender #4: The CN Tower in Toronto, Canada stands 553.33 meters of 1,815 feet high.

Problem: There is no problem, the CN tower, at the very least, is the world's longest freestanding above ground structure.
