One way to make it harder would be to go by rooftop. Chase Tower in Indianapolis is really only 700 ft tall, likewise Freedom Tower is the same height as the old World Trade Center. Slapping a big spire on a building really shouldn't count especially since a TV tower isn't considered a building. Another way to make it harder is take the tallest buildings regardless of what city they're in and highlight the answer to the yellow box.

it always seemed silly to me that spires and statuary count but radio antennas and flag poles do not. By this standard the Sears Tower always got short changed versus many other spire-y buildings like the Petronas Towers. Though there are other ways to measure, such as the height of the highest inhabitable floor of the building.

I have to admit that bothered me too when Petronas Towers "surpassed" the Sears Tower thanks to hundreds of feet of decorative spire.

It's become almost standard design now just for the prestige of false height. It's like men saying they're 6'1" because they're wearing hiking boots when they're really under 6', just braggadocio. Some, like the Conde Nast in NYC look thoroughly ridiculous on a silhouette chart ahead of other buildings.

Well technically the definition of a building or Skyscraper is that at least half of the buildings height is habitable so.........
