hehe that would be unnecessary. Since with the city's inscription in the UNESCO World Heritage Site, there should be no structure taller than the church and the bell tower.

Funny how in this thread from 2013 everyone was convinced it would be Shenzen, now there's not even a single megatall in the city and none on the horizon.

Here's a recent candidate:

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...&postcount=158

One U/C and three proposed in Wuhan.

Dubai of course has one complete, one prep (doesn't matter it's no building, megatall is megatall) and two proposed. HOWEVER, one proposal (Dubai One) is clearly long term, the other (Burj 2020) seems like it will take another 2020 years before anything happens on the site (hence the building's name.)

Next on the list we currently have Kuala Lumpur with one U/C and one proposed.

Handle all with care, economies are ever-changing beasts, and the cities with the steadiest economies (NYC, London, Hong Kong, Tokyo, etc) are more conservative in regards to outrageous projects.

Likeliest candidates for me are Dubai (outrageous projects, a lot of which fail, but even if only 10% of the proposals become reality, given the sheer number of proposals that'll still lead to something) and the above-mentioned Shanghai, which counts among the previously mentioned cities with steady economies, but with a dash less conservatism about megatalls and such than the other cities I named.
