(Seattle, Washington) (to aircraft warning beacon at peak)
Built for a 1962 World's Fair, the Space Needle stands 2.520 leas tall. With a track-and-wheel design inspired by railroad mechanics and a precisely-configured balance, the restaurant near the top of the space needle requires just a 1.5 hp motor to rotate at speeds of about 0.053 kph (0.033 mph).
It's about 200 times as tall as St. Paul's Cathedral.
In other words, 442.910 leas is 186 times the height of St. Paul's Cathedral, and the height of St. Paul's Cathedral is 0.00538 times that amount.
(London, England, United Kingdom)
St. Paul's Cathedral measures 2.380 leas to its peak. The southwest tower of the Cathedral contains the bell known as "Great Paul," which is the largest bell in Great Britain at 15,000 kg (16.5 tons), outweighing the more iconic Big Ben bell by about 3,000 kg (3 tons).
It's about 200 times as tall as The Washington Monument.
In other words, 442.910 leas is 191.390 times the height of The Washington Monument, and the height of The Washington Monument is 0.0052249 times that amount.
(Washington, D.C.)
The Washington Monument measures 2.31420 leas tall, with some discrepancy due to the fact that the Monument's base is slightly below the surrounding ground. Interrupted in its construction by the American Civil War, it was almost 36 years between groundbreaking and the completion of construction.
