It is the the inside top of the 'bottle opener' trapezoid. There is a 2 metre wide, glass-floored, walkway up there, with a gift shop, attendants, elevators, and such.
The roof would then be the mechanical floors above it.

If that is not sufficient then the bottom of the trapezoid has a restaurant, another gift shoppe and large viewing area.

If you want it to be the highest occupied office space floor, that's another matter.

Last month I visited the ICC in Hong Kong, KK100 in Shenzhen and the SWFC in Shanghai as well as the Shanghai Tower. (from the ground) Coming from a city (Vancouver) where the tallest building is just over 200 meters, these buildings are incredible! I've watched the progress of these monsters for over half a decade and to finally see many of them in person and to travel to the top floors was truly amazing. One day architecture will lead us to a true utopia. I can't wait to visit more of these precursors to that era.

Beautiful thread, Jewish. Have taken a look and I like it. Your rule about height is so simple that it must be right.
