i hope this comparison between a render and a photo explains what i mean:

I think it would have been very difficult and took a long time to create it with this `wave` like effect

Actually, it should indeed be at about 400 meters. But it doesn't top out until about 450 meters.

The TV tower will have 37 floors on five "zones" within the steel latticework.

have a look at culwulla's diagram. you can see that guangzhou tv tower has reached 390 meters. it has been 12 days since culwulla posted the diagram. so at least a new floor was constructed. that equals to ~395 meters. maybe even 400 meters!!!
