Yes, the concrete structure stopped at lev155 or 586m, but the first 6 floors up to lev162 or 624m have concrete floors, which ive mentioned before.
this is what makes these levels "inhabitable".
Above lev162, the structure is purely steel and consists of the 40 level ornamental spire and pinnacle structure.

No more than five minutes.

Well, considering they got the information about the KVLY-TV mast completely wrong (it only held the record for approx. 28 years, not 45), I wouldn't put too much faith in their other numbers.

Yes, the bridge that goes over the main road, connecting the two parts of the park.

Droneidiot you have won a calculator.

The tower is located three miles west of Blanchard, North Dakota, which is roughly halfway between Fargo and Grand Forks. It became the tallest artificial structure upon the completion of its construction on August 13, 1963

1963 + 45 = 2008

Your claculation

1963 + 28 = 1991.

Restore the faith dude!

OTR, The Warszawa radio mast was the tallest for 17 years (between 1974 and 1991, until it collapsed). So 45 - 17 = 28!
