From what I have seen, the extreme winds are not that erosive, probably because of the thinner atmosphere. That was one of the first things I noticed when I first saw photos taken on Mars surface, the erosion made by the wind looks weaker than on Earth.

Actually I’m am a huge fan of weather and in fact I believe this structure is easily explainable by the desolate mars surface covered in sand with the extreme winds that are produced on mars which could easily erode a rock structure to that shape.

Please refrain from talking for other people, especially if you don´t seem to get what I was pointing out exactly to the other poster I responded to.
I did make sure to say "He was probably" talking about the 3D buildings option.
And what I said is true. Chadwickus was talking about the "3D buildings" option in GoogleEarth. The 3D building option shows CGI buildings -- NOT real pictures -- and simulated shadows. Therefore, the fact that the eiffel tower is real is not relevant to [what I think] Chadwickus' point was...and that point [I think] is that GoogleEarth shows simulated shadows for their CGI Eiffel tower, and probably shows simulated shadows for the computer-generated "Mars tower" that is the subject of this thread.
The "3D building" version of the Eiffel tower is not real, and the shadows are simulated -- Although the Eiffel tower really does exist. However, that doesn't mean that the Mars tower is real, even though it has similar simulated shadows.
