It's about ten times as tall as The Petronas Twin Towers.
In other words, 4,421 meters is 9.7830 times the height of The Petronas Twin Towers, and the height of The Petronas Twin Towers is 0.10220 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Menara Berkembar Petronas, a.k.a. Petronas Towers) (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia) (to spire)
Each of the Petronas Towers stands 451.9 m 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 115 m deep.
It's about eleven-and-a-half times as tall as The Empire State Building.
In other words, 4,421 meters is 11.6030 times the height of The Empire State Building, and the height of The Empire State Building is 0.086185 times that amount.
(New York City, New York) (to top of building)
The Empire State Building stands 381.01 m to its architectural peak. The spire emerging from the top of the building was originally intended to be a mooring mast for blimps whose passengers could disembark onto a landing platform on the 102nd floor of the building.
It's about thirteen-and-a-half times as tall as The Eiffel Tower.

(a.k.a. RMS Queen Elizabeth 2) The QE2 has a total length of 294 m. During its voyaging lifetime from 1969 through 2008, it travelled more than 9,600,000,000 meters, the furthest cumulative distance by any ship in modern history.
It's about nineteen-and-a-half times as tall as The Golden Gate Bridge.

(San Francisco, California and Marin County, California) (height above water)
The height of each tower of Golden Gate Bridge is 227 m 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 Panama Canal.
In other words, the length of The Panama Canal is 20 times 4,421 meters.
(Canal de Panamá) (Panama)

(Seattle, Washington) (to aircraft warning beacon at peak)
Built for a 1962 World's Fair, the Space Needle stands 184 m 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).
