Your information conflicts with some of your sources as well as Emporis.

I have added the building and city but used the information that I found. I put your description in and used the 185ft height as the estimated height to the top of the weather tower on the roof.

Thanks for adding it. My guess is that the difference in heights between Emporis and my source is the weather tower on top. The difference is roughly 40 feet, and Dubuque is my hometown and the weather tower is about 40 feet tall on top of the building. Thanks again.
