Nah, topping out is when the actual main structure (disregarding masts) reaches its full height and the last section of the structure is fitted:

"In building construction, topping out, or topping off, is a ceremony held when the last beam is placed at the top of a building. The term may also refer to the overall completion of the building's structure, or an intermediate point, such as when the roof is dried in. A topping out ceremony is usually held to commemorate the event."

Heron's topping out ceremony was held on Monday.

Move to the Highrises section...

Final height: 194m | 640ft
Floors: 55

This one was always lower than 200 meters...

SANTIAGO | Titanium La Portada Tower | 200m+ | 55 fl | Com

to

SANTIAGO | Titanium La Portada Tower | 194m | 55 fl | Com

Some sources...
CTBUH
SkyscraperPage.com

I prefer the Skyscraperpage height of this building, because it's more exactly than the CTBUH's one.

Thanks...

It was not meant to be an agressive post!

The thing has been getting in and out of construction for the passed three years due to the crisis in Spain, and it is getting a bit desperate to follow construction.

this is not U/C yet according to SSC rules, even though it is officially U/C (ground breaking ceremony). either these rules are going to be applied to all buildings here, or we have to change several towers, which currently have the PREP status to U/C status.
