In the German T185 thread someone posted a twitter link. The mayor herself, Petra Roth stated it will be exactly 200m.

What reason should she have to not tell the truth? Would this change anything for her as a politician?

Well the Commerzbank Tower has actually 300m with Antenna, The Maintower 240m. And I my opinion we should consider this additional height

Here the list with Antennas:

(1.TV Tower- 337m)
1. Commerzbanktower 300m
2. Messetower 256m
3.Maintower 240m
4. Westend Tower 208m
5. PWC Tower 200m

if you count the antenna, you might aswell include the ecb tower at 220m (u/c).

thats what I always said, I mean when you see the sears "willis" tower you would say the antenna belong to the building, it would look ugly without them, the same with maintower or even commerzbank... but PWC tower won큧 have an antenna, well I would큡 look good...

speaking about real spires ... has anyone noticed that pollux has a spire too? I wonder how tall the building is with the spire.

T185 almost reached the height of pollux (130m, without spire)
