Give a list of tallest structures of different kind for your country!

Let us give a list of the tallest structures of different kind for your country.
If the actual tallest of one kind is not the tallest of this kind, that existed in your country, than mention this in brackets. Please use as much categories as possible, but only those for which exist adaquate structures in other country ( skyscraper mixed use is for example not a good category).
The categories I choose for the following list for Germany are a good choice, as most of the structure mentioned there may exist in all countries.

Unfortunatly not included in this site yet. The telecommunication towers of television and radio on top of office buildings in SP are the tallest structures in Brazil. They are 150-200m high and in quantity of 12 aprox. I unfortunatly can not be more precise. For example has:

Tower:
Globo Tower on Trianon Corporate Office bldg - 185m (115m+70m) IF SOMEONE DRAWS THEM, I APPRECIATE A LOT- See Emporis.com for photos.

@Mkmillenium: Count skyscrapers with towers on its roof as skyscrapers in this defintion. I gave for all "tallest in German" in the upper list the pinnacle height as this height definition is the only defintion available for all kinds of architectural structures.

This might be breaking it down a bit too much, but as far as I know the Marriott Ren. Cen. in Detroit is the tallest hotel in the U.S.
