Ok, I stop now, but I thought it was important to explain why the 1WTC is red white and blue... a little "souvenir" of France !!! and its revolution !!

First of all, 1 WTC doesn't have a spire, it has an antenna, unless you are referring to the old design. If you think there is no difference between those, then there is also no difference between the ESB's antenna, or the Sears Tower's antenna. If they count 1 WTC's's antenna, then they need to count the JHC's antenna's, and any building that has antenna's. But wait, I forgot 1WTC has a light at the top...

Look, I love 1 WTC, but I am fine with it being 417m, and if they want it to be 541m, they should have designed it with more floors.

If it meets the definition of an antenna, but doesn't meet the definition of a spire, it is an antenna, and these definitions are already now widely accessible to the public. Besides, iirc Vito Corleone from CTBUH said that the current design is being viewed as an antenna by them

This building and all what it stands for, it needs to be done right. If they don't use the randome it's going to be the biggest crime ever. Look how crap that antenna looks.

I have ruled it an antenna. Now what?

Remember, not everyone agrees with the self appointed body whose opinion is often cited.

There are tons of ways of measuring and classifying structures. The best way to avoid pointless bickering is to acknowledge that everyone looks at it differently. As long as we all are up front about with metric or methodology is being discussed, discussion is productive. There is no need to prove any method as superior. Both roof height and structural height are interesting discussion topics. The same goes for antenna height.

There is no "official" height. No club of pundits holds any authority over the measurement of buildings. Instead, all they can offer is the ctbuh opinion on height.
