This might help on finding out if the tower is 280/285 or 300+ on top pf spire:
Bright Start roof sculpture
Bright Start Tower, Sheikh Zaid Road, Dubai, UAE
On behalf of the fabricator, we analysed the dynamics of the 32-tonne steel roof sculpture that will identify Bright Start Tower — a mixed-use development some 60 storeys tall.
The 42m steel wand, averaging 2.5m in diameter, is clad in aluminium panels and fixed at its base to an 18m high steel platform supported by the roof of the tower. Taking wind forces into account, the sculpture will result in reactions of up to 150 tonnes on some of the platform's supporting columns.
To harness the sculpture's dynamic response to wind, we recommended the introduction of a 600 kg chain damper attached to top of the structure inside the frame. This free-hanging weight acts to contain lateral excitation within acceptable limits.
Wind tunnel testing to our specification confirmed our calculations, enabling us to report to tower engineers on behalf of our client

Sangue latino, coração de terra bruta, a nossa luta é por trabalho e gente séria.
