Eiffel had a permit for the tower to stand for 20 years, meaning it would have had to be dismantled in 1909, when its ownership would revert to the City of Paris. The City had planned to tear it down (part of the original contest rules for designing a tower was that it could be easily demolished) but as the tower proved valuable for communication purposes, it was allowed to remain after the expiration of the permit. The military used it to dispatch Parisian taxis to the front line during the First Battle of the Marne, and it therefore became a victory statue of that battle.
Type your answer here... It was supposed to be torn down, but it has stayed as a permanent structure
The Eiffel tower was saved from demolition in 1909 because the antenna is used for military and radio purposes. The antenna was very helpful for the military during World War one.
There were no plans to demolish the Eiffel Tower in 1990. Originally, the Tower was planned to stand for 20 years (that is, until 1909), after which it would be removed. However, it proved valuable as a radio tower, and was permitted to remain. Later in World War I, it was used for radio jamming equipment against German communications.
The structures that Eiffel designed had great social, economical, and political impacts on the world. These structures included bridges, the Eiffel Tower, and the Statue of Liberty. The Eiffel Tower had a huge impact on France. The tower was the focal point of the International Exposition in 1889 and drew millions of people to Paris. Nearly two million people visited the Eiffel Tower in 1889 alone. The tower quickly became a tourist attraction and brought large amounts of money into France's economy. After originally being thought of as an eyesore (it was actually designed to be torn down easily after the end of the Exposition), the tower quickly became a national symbol of France and brought a sense of pride to the people who live there.
The Eiffel Tower was built in Paris, France as the entrance arch for an international exhibition called Exhibition Universelle which was a "World's Fair' exhibition to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the French Revolution. Its architect and structural engineer was Gustave Eiffel. Eiffel originally submitted it to the city of Barcelona, Spain for the 1888 Universal Exhibition but was refused because they felt it was strange, didn't fit in with the design and look of the city, and was going to be too expensive of an undertaking. Eiffel then submitted his design to the committee in Paris for the 1889 Exhibition. It was constructed from 1887 to 1889 and was officially opened May 6, 1889. It was intended to be a temporary structure to be torn down shortly after the exhibition closed.

The Eiffel Tower was built between 1887 and 1889 and inaugurated in 1889 for the Universal Exhibition of Paris. In those days Paris was "the center of the world".As this building was, during 40 years, the highest built building int he world, is became a symbol of Paris and a symbol of France, known today by a lot and a lot of people.The way the cinema, and especially the US cinema, represents Paris also contributes to make the Eiffel Tower a worldwide known symbol.Each big city in the world has its own symbolic building. Paris is a long-known city with a wide cultural halo.Originally intended as a temporary exhibit, the Eiffel Tower was almost torn down and scrapped in 1909. City officials opted to save it after recognizing its value as a radiotelegraph station. Several years later, during World War I, the Eiffel Tower intercepted enemy radio communications, relayed zeppelin alerts and was used to dispatch emergency troop reinforcements. I
