No... 3 Floors does not = 74m. it's the crown that's part of that 74m's.
another 3fl = ~13m.the rest of the height is the crown

I know.. It's not actually a crown, it's a sky lounge or a lobby.. so maybe it would be more than 40 meters in height!

Yep, it's the bulk not just the height that gives this building it's oomph factor, lot of concrete has gone into this thing!
