It's about eight-and-a-half times as tall as The Petronas Twin Towers.
In other words, 24,930 shaftments is 8.4070 times the height of The Petronas Twin Towers, and the height of The Petronas Twin Towers is 0.11890 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 2,965 shaftments 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 754.60 shaftments deep.
It's about ten times as tall as The Empire State Building.
In other words, 24,930 shaftments is 9.97170 times the height of The Empire State Building, and the height of The Empire State Building is 0.100280 times that amount.
(New York City, New York) (to top of building)
The Empire State Building stands 2,500.10 shaftments 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 eleven-and-a-half times as tall as The Eiffel Tower.
In other words, the height of The Eiffel Tower is 0.0855 times 24,930 shaftments.
(a.k.a. La Tour Eiffel) (Paris, France) (to flagpole peak)
The Eiffel Tower stands 2,130 shaftments tall, including its flagpole. The Tower is the largest structure in Paris as most other buildings are governed by a zoning restriction limiting them to a height of 243 shaftments or less.
It's about thirteen times as long as The QE2.
In other words, 24,930 shaftments is 12.90 times the length of The QE2, and the length of The QE2 is 0.0775 times that amount.
(a.k.a. RMS Queen Elizabeth 2) The QE2 has a total length of 1,930 shaftments. During its voyaging lifetime from 1969 through 2008, it travelled more than 63,000,000,000 shaftments, the furthest cumulative distance by any ship in modern history.
It's about sixteen-and-a-half times as tall as The Golden Gate Bridge.
In other words, the height of The Golden Gate Bridge is 0.0599 times 24,930 shaftments.
(San Francisco, California and Marin County, California) (height above water)
The height of each tower of Golden Gate Bridge is 1,490 shaftments 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 twenty-and-a-half times as tall as The Space Needle.
In other words, the height of The Space Needle is 0.0485 times 24,930 shaftments.
(Seattle, Washington) (to aircraft warning beacon at peak)
Built for a 1962 World's Fair, the Space Needle stands 1,210 shaftments 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 twenty times as tall as St. Paul's Cathedral.
In other words, 24,930 shaftments is 21.80 times the height of St. Paul's Cathedral, and the height of St. Paul's Cathedral is 0.0459 times that amount.
(London, England, United Kingdom)
St. Paul's Cathedral measures 1,140 shaftments 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).
