How height is the highest part of the last framed section in the render? between 540 and 550 m ?

theres still more framed spire to go up.maybe 15m? to reach 550m. then a larger fatter red/white antenna will rise up with that thinner section at very top (seen above) after jacking is complete.

Will it painted white on the antenna? I don't really like both red/orange and white on the antenna. I think it will mess this amazing tower up badly.

Perhaps due to regulations? Many masts/antennae around the world painted with red (actually International Orange, the same colour as Golden Gate Bridge) and white as well as having aircraft warning lights.

yes, correct damien. all antenea have to have red/white scheme so planes can see them against sky.if you look at most telecom towers, most of top antennas red/white. it wont muck this up too much. its already great with first 100m of spire an intricate frame much like the tower itself. you wont see the top 60m or so of spire as its up nearly up 2000ft!

mhhh i think you are wrong. For example the antenna of the former trade center one bldg. wasn't included to the full height, because it was built on the roof after the tower was completed, therefore it ist'n content of the basic design. This tower's antenna is an element of the basic design, therefore it counts for the full height. So we can say everything what has been put on a building what increases it's hegiht AFTER it was COMPLETED, doesn't count for the full height!

antennas on towers can be included and its intricate to the towers use age.-which is telecommunications. you cant count them on skyscrapers because there an addition on the roof top. totally different.
