My order by likeliness:

1- Shenzhen (Pingan & Caiwuwei Financial Center)
2- Tianjin (Goldin Finance 117 & Rose Rock; both are slightly shorter than 600m though..)
3- Riyadh (nothing yet..but look what's going on there..)
4- Jeddah (Kingdom Tower & ?)
5- Mecca (Royal Clock Tower & ?)
6- Changsha (Sky City & ?)
7- Shanghai (Shanghai Tower & ?)
8- Dubai (Burj Khalifa & ?)
9- Chicago (Old Post Office Redevelopment Tower & Chicago Spire?)
10-Guangzhou (nothing so far..)

Wuhan, Shenzhen or Dubai would be my guess. Tianjin has no megatall coming and several just a bit under the 600m mark, so i doubt they will make it first

Shenzhen probably. I doubt Dubai has the balls to overbuild again.

I know Wuhan is an important city in central China but I'd rather have those megatalls go to Shanghai or Guangzhou, the Tier 1 Megacities that break 20 million people. Wuhan should build a sea of +200m with a few 300m, that's more fitting to its size.

Do not forget dubai currently has a serious proposal of hhe tallest commercial tower, a few more projects pop up from time to time as well. I wouldn't count it out yet, after all we talk about quite a bit of time until any city comes close to three megatalls. So we will see. Still i also hope Wuhan or Shenzhen will make it rather sooner than later. For Wuhan i am still doubtful, because most megatalls are still concept though. For Shenzhen it seems like only a matter of time though, especially now that qianhai started
