It was Istanbul's and Turkey's tallest skyscraper between 2010 and 2016, and the 4th tallest building in Europe when its construction was finished in 2010. Sapphire rises 54 floors above ground level, and contains an above-ground roof height of 238 meters: the construction has an overall structural height of 261 meters including its spire, which is part of the design rather than a radio antenna.
