Notes NOTES: Also known as St John's Beacon, this radio and observation tower with revolving restaurant was originally built as a ventilation shaft for St John's Market. However, it was never used as such due to a new law passed on the year of completion. After a lengthy period of disuse, it was refurbished in 1999 and reopened in 2000 as Radio City 96.7.
