The tower does not have a spire, It has a mast that is not included in height calculations.

Me no pro, but I think a spire is a structural part of the building while a mast is, well, just a rig fastened to the structure.

It's a good argument only that sometimes you realize that all the metallic spires are connected to the building in a similar way to the masts.
Okay, a different angle to look at it would be to consider that thing atop teleposta tower. Its often considered as part of the architectural height (that makes up the 120 metres) but it also looks pretty much like kcb "mast" . Shouldn't they be treated the same?
