That seems a correct figure. However, 452 feet would be to the top of the last occupied floor. The top with all the sloped glass is not occupied space but is mechanical space. Of course, the arch & spires are definitely only decorative.
452 feet is not an unusual figure for a 30 story office building with a floor to floor of 14 feet (average). I was working for the architectural firm while the tower was being designed so I am pretty sure the figures are correct.
