Soooo turns out it's possibly still a 400m supertall?

"The tip of the tower is 68.55 meters above the top of the core. And the height of the core is 331.5 m. So 331.5+68.55=400.05 m

the question is if the 331.5m is height above sea or ground level.

Most likely sea level, since I viewed the blueprints in the KPF office. Height to the tip measured from ground level: 392.5 m.

It says the tip is exactly 68.55m above the top of the core and the height of the core isn't really sea-level-measured... So I don't think this is measured in sea level?... Plus the height restriction issue was partially resolved, so they might have changed back to original design.

Is there still hope for something significant(say 500m+) in the shenwan area? I read somewhere that Qianhai successfully avoided the worst case scenario of a height limit of 150m and if tower can be as tall as 300m in Qianhai maybe there is still hope for the Shenwan megatalls and baishizhou redevelopment.
