If the flagpole was included in total height, it would be Baltimore's tallest. But it is not included in the final height. Why is that? Aren't spires and flagpoles both decorations?



Interestingly enough, the Bank of America building has an antenna taller than PNC Plaza and maybe taller than WDS as well.
This picture is a good demonstrater of how the current rules make no sense.

I think it should have something to do with a percentage of the building's average width. Or gradual decreasing width percentage from the roof top or ornate building top.

I don't know how that would be measured, or who would decide that appropriate percentage, but I think it should not include such a drastic decrease in size as a flag pole or any pole, antenna, etc.
