Those antennae, or thin spires for that matter, should count toward real, visual final height for a tower. This one should be one of the premier supertalls in the world that equals the height of the tallest just 15 years ago.

The photos are too big. It would be a good idea to resize.

They should just put a longer antenna on this building. The money has been spent, so why not just go for taller.
