A spire always counts as the official high (I think, not sure) like 1WTC for instance. However somehow they didnt build a proper spire but only a cheap antenna which is now being replaced by a proper spire because the architect complained, so it can stay in de skyscraper section.

Do you know when the antenna will be added?

This building is beautiful, I love it.

thats more a legend that the antenna will be replaced. they are rather correcting it, static-wise. dont expect it to look any different.

OK, I guess we just have to wait and see. It's still one of the best skyscrapers currently u/c in Europe imo.

This tower deserves a proper spire, it's the head quarters of the ECB, as such it should reflect the status and importance of the institution to the European financial system. Maybe German forumers could do a whip around, donate ten euros each and give it a 40m spire

the problem with spires in germany is, that they have to be red and white -legally- which will make every spire look crappy, no matter how you shape it.

if you are building a skyscraper in germany you are always better off without a spire.
since the spire on this building isnt technically necessary -so the rumour goes- i blame the architects.

Wow I never knew that was a law in Germany. How unusual.

Well yes... the ECB HQ would lose its charm with a red a white pole sticking out of it. I would have thought it would have a spire similar to the Heron Towers in London, like so;

So I find that the ECB and Main Tower look great with the red and white spire.
What bothers me is only the low altitude at the ECB.

Unfortunately not. The guide didn't know anything about a spire replacement.
