610 meters is a pretty basic limit for air safety reasons. I think it's going to be kind of ridiculous to start trying to rate all the towers about that height because of a few centimeters of beacon height or thicker paint or whatever. Everybody would be adding a bigger antenna at the tip to try to get the title back.

Maybe not...
I was just read on www.worldarchitecturenews.com that Pentominium is 516 m tall and without the spire...And one of the forumers said that there's no spire on the plans...

So that makes Skytree 3rd...

東京天空樹の高さ610mの理由

東京都心部で立ち並ぶ200m級の超高層ビルの影響を受けないぎりぎりの高さとして、NHKと在京民放キー局5社が「600m」という数字を要請した。建設計画を策定する中で当時世界一の高さであったCNタワーを上回る高さとしてアメリカイリノイ州・シカゴに建設予定であった「シカゴ・スパイア」(現在は凍結中)のアンテナを含めた高さが約2,000フィート(約609.6m)であったため、「610m」という数字になったという。更に石原慎太郎東京都知事は定例会見で幾度となく東京スカイツリーの建設を批判した。石原都知事は「巨大タワー自体が必要ない、建設業者の思うつぼだ」」「オリンピックの方が優先すべき事業」などと述べており、これ以上高いタワーにはならなかった。

You mean the skyline of Tokyo, I'm pretty sure that you won't be able to see the Skytree from Fukuoka or Sapporo.

This part of Tokyo is mainly a low-rise area, you only really see the skyline of Chiba city in the background.

Tokyo's own skyline is more to the right from this, the golden turd from the Asahi Beer Tower points to it.

The reason for the 610m high Tokyo Sky Tree

In central Tokyo, famous for its height of 200m as barely affected the level of the skyscraper, NHK and five Tokyo-based company key commercial TV stations "600m" and asked that the figures. Time the world was in the height of the CN construction plan was in Chicago, Illinois, USA plans to build a tower high above the "Chicago Spire" (currently frozen), including the antenna height of about 2,000 feet (609.6m) because it was, "610m" it was above it. Tokyo Governor Shintaro Ishihara has further criticized the Tokyo Sky Tree construction time and again in a briefing. Ishihara, "do not need a huge tower itself, but odds are builders," "" priority projects are those of the Olympics "and has said, the tower is higher than it had.
