Telecommunications spire? oh please... Is that Durst's pathetic attempt at getting what is now clearly an antenna counted in the final height?
I have no problem with this very nice tower being 1373 feet tall.
Durst just needs to give up on the BS. By removing the cladding the spire is no longer an architectural element and should be recognized as such by the CTBUH.
