A large portion of the spire structure will remain inside the tower to stabilize it. I believe the whole thing is over 200 Meters tall and only 140 Meters will be exposed.

Awesome night photo. What camera did you use? One of my goals is to buy a camera that could take at least halfway decent pics at night
