I would see the building property as orthogonal, a tower may also be a building, e.g. this one is a tower and a building in my reading:


also bell towers often are buildings, as are the monumental and accessible tv towers. Also this one is an example for a building (and also a water tower): https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/it/f/f1/2012-07-19_Roma_EUR_Fungo_(torre_serbatoio).jpg
(has a restaurant below the tank)

Although it is not very high, I would call this one a building and a tower too: https://commons.m.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Einsteinturm_7443.jpg#mw-jump-to-license
(it was built for scientific research)
