The floor counts are accurate. Take a look at the second image. The taller building on the left is a 27 floor apartment building. The building on the right, is a 15 floor office building. Office buildings tend to have higher floor to ceiling ratios than residential buildings.

For instance, 3737 Market has 17' ceilings. Assuming this office building would be the same (same developers, architects), that means this building would be 255 feet tall.

Residential buildings on the other hand, usually have 10 foot ceilings, which means we're likely looking around 270 feet for the residential building.
