~87 metres above the lowest observation level.

Those two floors at the top ring have the observation deck and then above that is steel mechanical and the crown. If my guess is correct, then it is at ~547 or ~548m. We shall know soon enough!

WTC is just a copy of SWFC yet with a spire and of simpler design.
