Can we consider the currently being constructed part as a spire?

This is a TV tower and the bit they are constructing on top is an antenna. Spires have no real function other than being an integral part of the architectural identity of a building. Antennas have a purpose but are not architectural features. So, in answer to your question, no I don't think so.

I see that the exoskeleton is rusty-ish, is it normal?
