Looks like digging has begun in the corner! Kingdom Tower will finish way before this building.

What is happening is China right now looks very similar to the US in the 30's, building-wise.
Shanghai Tower will be China's tallest for a very short time before it is surpassed by Ping An, but Zhongnan is already around the corner waiting to take the title. And the race will surely plough on! I hope that the competition lasts.
