What is the size of the new Starship Launch tower at Boca Chica?
Is there a better estimate of the size?

The pier is just shy of 3 pickups in width as you can see in the photo below from RGV Aerial.
The overall length of a Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck 4x2 double cab with 6.6-foot box is 231.8 inches. Three pickups end-to-end will total 58 ft.
So the width of the base of the tower is slightly less, about 56 ft or 17 meters. That would be the length of the short diagonal of the hexagon.
RGV's estimate is not too large. It's right on the money. Thanks to Xcali for pointing out my error.
