The project shown in that picture has nothing to do with Qianhai. It's located at totally different areas of the city.

Like z0rg said, the "800 meters" is the length of a retail street at the heart of that development.

Limit? At China's rate of construction, we'll probably see a 900 meter plus proposal this year

In China there're 5-10 proposals taller than Ping'an already

Found this supposed render of Qianhai on Gaoloumi...probably a fake...

Not fake per se, just the aspect ratios are wrong. The picture is taken from Qianhai Admin Bureau's weibo http://e.weibo.com/u/3096705901 The image got resized when it was uploaded.

We can expect many supertall plots in Qianhai CBD.
