(a.k.a. Menara Berkembar Petronas, a.k.a. Petronas Towers) (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia) (to spire)
Each of the Petronas Towers stands 74.130 ropes to their spires. Holding the record as the tallest buildings in the world from 1998 to 2004, the towers continue to hold the record for the deepest foundation barrettes — up to 18.860 ropes deep.
It's about thirteen times as tall as The Empire State Building.

(New York City, New York) (to top of building)

(San Francisco, California and Marin County, California) (height above water)
The height of each tower of Golden Gate Bridge is 37.20 ropes above the surface of the San Francisco Bay. One of the key designers of the bridge, Charles Ellis, had no engineering degree when he began working on the project, but would later go on to write what became a standard textbook on structural engineering, and would ultimately be forced to complete his calculations on the bridge by working without pay for five months.
It's about one-twentieth as long as The English Channel.
