Therefore the actual height should be 1342,5 feet (about 409m) and not 1366 feet (about 416m).....

Actually, the top four to six levels are 17 feet and 19 feet high - and a few inches. The levels from the bottom through the top mechanical and the beginning of the steel only top are 15 feet and some inches. See the structural plans posted on page 158.

Great shots! That's a serious zoom on your camera. What is the camera/ focal length?
