Yekaterinburg seeks ideas to develop world's tallest abandoned structure
Soviet engineers began working on the structure in 1981 but only reached half of its intended height before the USSR collapsed, ending work on the project. As a result of engineering mistakes, the tower now has a slight lean, though it is not at risk of falling, Newser reports.
The tower has been sealed shut because of the number of suicides and not-always-successful base-jumpers it has attracted.
