The Grand Wilshire Center has convinced me that spires should not count towards height. After seeing Los Angeles in person and seeing the Grand Wilshire Center and US Bank Tower from a distance, the US Bank Tower is clearly taller, but gets beat by a tall stick.
Part of this is also the fact that the US Bank Tower sits atop Bunker Hill, and that gives it a lot of visual height from a distance where downtown might appear to be flat.
