At 56 stories, Arraya is slated to open in 2007 as one of the tallest buildings on the dynamic skyline of Kuwait City. The 50 million, 500,000-square-foot tower is composed of two parts: a square glass element that rises the full height of the building and a limestone-clad mass that is canted at an angle in plan and in relation to surrounding street grids. The limestone portion of the tower recalls the established vernacular of the existing multi-use Arraya complex, which includes a 32-story, 300-suite hotel, conference and banquet space, a parking garage and a three-level retail complex with over 10,000 square meters of shopping. The iconic top of the tower, which is topped by a telecommunications mast, is sloped and angled to create a unique and memorable image for the entire complex.

this must have the least floor count for a 300m building?
i just scaled model and if spire = 300m, then top of pointy roof or base of spire = 245m and main roof= 200m.

Emirates (Hotel) Tower @309 meters, has only 51 Floors, at least that what the lift pad shows for the VU's bar that is on top, where the angled part starts.
