The VRT-toren

The Sint-Pieters-Leeuw Tower, sometimes called the VRT-toren, although there are several by that name, is a 300 metre tall free standing tower at Sint-Pieters-Leeuw, on the outskirts of Brussels, Belgium built in 1996. It is the tallest free standing structure in Belgium.

After its construction, it was suggested that it was built illegally, due to irregularities in the building permits. There were complaints against it as some feel it is an eyesore, and it has even been suggested that the tower may be demolished.[1][2][3] In April 2007, the irregularities were straightened out, and the tower is now considered to be built legally.
