The Chrysler Building has a spire.

The Petronas Towers have antennas.

The Difference is that a spire has space that a human can occupy.

Technically speaking, 40 Wall Street has a higher roof, as measured from the side walk, than the Chrysler Building.

To discount occupiable spires in favour of antennas would be to make flag poles and wires held aloft by balloons count for hight.

Whether you agree with them, I impose a common standard across time.
