The new Pentominium spire is somewhere around 200m, so probably no.

That means that pentominium's roof is somewhere around 418 metres which is not true. The spire on that building is much shorter than 200 metres. And I want to know how tall spire on oryx tower is.

Well, no.

The Pentominium spire is around 200m long, it doesn't start on the roof but it sits on the side of the building, the top of the fin (the roof) is 516m...

You can see it on Cul's diagram...

EDIT: And according to this diagram, it is 209m long...

Thats last picture made me cringe! This new guy on the block is quite impressive though I must say when I first glanced at the renderings I was like WTF? But, in a good way if that makes any sense?

From the rendering it appears that only part of the tower will have floors, the diagonal bracing part appears empty, the front part has floors. The LED screen appears on the diagonal bracing part.

It would be cool if you could climb to the top of ths spires like Burj Dubai.
