The top of the building is 305m AOD (ie. above sea level). From ground level it rises up to 288m, which is the building's official height.

The City of London is booming with so many highrises and I couldn't be happier about that

True. This is London's extensive skyline as it appears to the viewer right now. Add to it the Pinnacle, Cheesegrater and Walkie-Talkie and what you'll have is arguably one of the world's most exquisite.

100 Bishopsgate and Heron Plaza will add some density to the cluster as well.
