This ranking system, created by the US-based Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat includes the height to a spire but not to an antenna.[1] The Lovett Tower is the tallest in the city. It is in the Woden Town Centre, a commercial district of Canberra. The maximum height of buildings in central Canberra is 617 metres above sea level, generally about 50 metres above ground level in Canberra City. As a result, the highest buildings are now found in Phillip or Belconnen.
