The main goal of this review is to decide which alternatives could be the most proper structural system type for 36 m tower height and practical specified deflection limit “Torsional Effect” at the tower top less than 0.5 degree to be used in a rural zone near of Budapest City, Hungary based on the most common control aspects (Aesthetical, Economical and Statical aspect) which influences the decision making and the selection process. According to that purpose a different tower types have been reviewed in detail (Lattice towers, Monopole and Guyed mast) in order to decide which alternatives could be selected for further investigations based on the limitations and requirements of the present case of study, where every alternative has it features, benefits and Specific limits of application. The resulted decision based on the presented study was that the most proper alternatives according to the specified information are the lattice towers (Square & Triangular) and the Monopole which deserve to be selected for further investigations.
