List of tallest structures in the United States

List of tallest structures in the United States

The height of structures in the United States has historically been poorly documented. However the data is a matter of public record, appearing in documents maintained by the Federal Aviation Administration and Federal Communications Commission.

This list is populated heavily by antenna masts. The engineering aspects of super-tall masts are highly specialized. Only four companies erect the majority of such structures: Doty Moore Tower Services (Cedar Hill, TX); Klein Towers (Columbia, SC); LeBlanc Royal Telecom (Oakville, ON); and Stainless Inc. (North Wales, PA). The design and construction are largely governed by RS222E EIA standards. A 1000 ft (305 m) mast costs between $0.7 and $1.1 million to build, while a 2000 ft (610 m) mast costs $2.4 to $4 million. Prices generally vary depending on tower capacity and wind loading specifications.

A common misperception is that landmarks such as the Stratosphere Tower are the tallest United States structures, but they are in fact the tallest "buildings". Likewise Taipei 101 is often misrepresented as the world's tallest structure, but in fact is far eclipsed by antenna towers in over a dozen states in the United States.

In the United States, the FAA and the FCC must approve all towers exceeding 200 ft (61 m) high. Furthermore, it is very difficult to get permission for structures over 2000 ft (610 m) high. The FCC presumes them to be inconsistent with the public interest, while the FAA presumes them to be a hazard to air navigation, resulting in poor airspace usage. A significant burden of proof is placed on the applicant to show that such a structure is in the public's best interests. Only when both agencies have resolved all legal, safety, and management concerns is such an application approved.

Since 1978 the United States has maintained eleven tethered aerostats sites along the southern borders. These balloons rise to 18,000 ft (5500 m), carrying radar units for drug interdiction purposes. However since the balloons are aided by buoyancy and are not permanent they are not considered true structures.

LORSTA (Loran Station) Port Clarence is currently being studied with a view toward refurbishment or replacement, and if the latter will be dismantled. The runner up in Alaska for height is the 808 ft (246 m) public telecommunications tower at Knik near Anchorage (coord|61|25|N|149|52|W|).

Arizona

** Height: 775 ft (236 m)
** Page (coord|36|54|12|N|111|23|25|W|)

** The Navajo coal-fired power plant, generating up to 2250 MW of power, is located 4 miles (6 km) east of Page, and boasts three 775 ft (236 m) reinforced concrete chimneys. In 1991 the EPA faulted the station for producing haze around the Grand Canyon, and in 1994 a study was done to investigate demolition requirements. However the studies never reached fruition. The tallest radio tower is the 650 ft (198 m) KSZR (97.5) tower in Oro Valley near Tucson.

** Hoyt (coord|39|55|22|N|103|58|18|W|)
** Year built: 2003
** Owner: Denver Radio Tower Company
** The primary reason for the tower is to get radio stations who do not have license for the Denver area to get into the Denver area (big advertising bucks). According to Raymond Morris, "I was the previous owner of the land on which the tower was located. I was trying to negotiate a lease with them, but the going got tough and I ended up selling 367.3 acres [1.5 km²] from a larger piece of land, (4000 feet x 4000 feet) [1.2 by 1.2 km] ."

The mast is owned by the Department of Energy and maintained by National Security Technologies. The second tallest structure in Nevada is the Moapa Entravision Tower at Moapa, a 426.7 metres tall guyed TV mast at Moapa erected in 2008, the third tallest 401 metres tall Moapa Kemp Tower at Moapa, the fourth tallest is Stratosphere Tower near downtown Las Vegas, which was erected in 1994-96 and reaches 1149 ft (350 m) and 921 ft (281 m) without the mast.

** This tower was known as the KTHI Television Tower until June 1995. It is the second tallest structure in the world, eclipsed only by the still-under-construction Burj Dubai in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, planned for completion in 2009. As of September 2, 2008, the website for the Burj Dubai project reported that it has reached a height of 688 meters (2,257 feet). However, the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat will not recognize the Burj Dubai figures as official until that building is complete. From 1974 until its collapse in 1991, the Warsaw Radio mast in Poland also eclipsed the KVLY-TV mast. North Dakota also has the third tallest structure in the world: the 2060 ft (628 m) KXJB-TV tower at Galesburg.
* KXJB Television Tower (Fargo/Valley City CBS 4)
** Height: 2060 ft (628 m)
** Galesburg (coord|47|16|45|N|97|20|27|W|)
** Year built: 1998
** The KXJB tower is the world's third largest man-made structure. It had collapsed three times due to winter and summer storms, though the first time it collapsed in 1968, it was caused from a Marine helicopter cutting four guy wires of the tower. The KVLY TV tower, the world's second-largest man-made structure is only about six miles from the KXJB tower.

** There was a taller tower from 1987 or 1988 until 1994 or 1995 when it was dismantled. It belonged to WCOM-TV (Mansfield Ind 68) and was located just south of Butler, Ohio. WCOM-TV signed on March 3, 1988. Height of the tower was 1576 ft. WCOM-TV used the tall tower and a directional antenna to try to serve the Columbus market. The station went dark in 1991 and the tower was sold to a religious broadcaster in South Carolina to be used as two separate 800 ft towers. An engineer recently reported that part of the tower was still on the ground in Sumter, South Carolina.

** The tower is home to WIMZ-FM 103.5, whose antenna is at the top. The tower itself is located one mile east of House Mountain, and stands 1,752 ft (479 m) above ground level. When used for television broadcasts by its former owner, Multimedia, Incorporated (former licensee of WBIR-TV, Knoxville) it was shielded by mountains from the audience in the western Knoxville suburbs like Farragut, Oak Ridge, and Oliver Springs. This tower was built, because the owners of WBIR-TV could not obtain land atop nearby House Mountain, because the only land suitable for a television tower base on the mountain, had been purchased by the station's main competitor WATE-TV, Knoxville.
