Highest building you've been up

Yeah, I know we have a thread for the highest buildings people have seen, but how many of these have you actually been up? excluding observation towers, what is the tallest building you have been in or up?

It's also the highest I've even been (outside a plane). About 1,970 m over sea level.

Original WTC, visited the rooftop observation deck on 2WTC several times (1377' up). I also worked on the 99th floor of 1WTC for a number of years, that was approximately 1,240' feet above the ground according to a PA building engineer I asked.
