A ploy to get Sydney to extend the Centrepoint tower. It is only 305 metres from the street, the Auckland tower will be 328.4m above the street and 355.4m above sea level. If you count the lightning collector (Dynasphere) it is about 2 metres taller.

The Sydney tower was designed in imperial units being exactly 1000 feet tall, too bad the Auckland tower isn't a third of a kilometer.
