Tallest skyscrapers by AOD height

I'm curious, what are the tallest skyscrapers by AOD (Above Ordnance Datum) height? i.e. when measured from sea level to the structural pinnacle of the building.

I'd imagine some of the skyscrapers in Denver, CO would be pretty tall.

Mexico City is nearly 1 km higher than Denver.

I would agree that something in La Paz (or somewhere else in the Andes) or maybe Lhasa, Tibet.

I don't think any of the last 3 would count as skyscrapers. What is the definiton we're going by? 12 floors? 100 Meters? Something else?

I would say 35+ floors is a skyscraper but that's more or less the same. Maybe this 150m skyscraper would have 40 floors or so...
