So roughly 30-40m for the crown, and the rest is spire then.. I was beginning to think that the roof height of each floor is massive!

Then again, 54 floors in 250m of height should easily fit with plenty of room for more...

Yes, it looks good especially when it is set against a blue sky. This building and the green one next door (the reclad Verizon building) compliment each other. They look like "Crystal and Jade". I am glad that they reclad that building because the old facade would have looked very outdated in this picture.
