Philadelphia City Hall completed in 1901 and the tallest habitable building until 1908 (and still tallest masonry building) at 167 m/ 548 ft definitely deserves an honorable mention.

Tokyo's City Hall is the world's tallest city hall, and it may be eclipsed by the proposed city hall in Moscow in the future.

The Potala Palace is 567 to 656 ft high depending on where you stop counting (including the massive brick base), built in 1694.
