I guess maybe just one fifth will get built eventually.
China has very big area and population, so that is not a big number for China.

34-36?

Are 14 completed supertalls...

Plus another 6 to be completed this year...

International Commerce Center
Nanjing Greenland Financial Complex
Guangzhou West Tower
China World Trade Center Tower 3
Guangzhou TV Tower
Wheelock Square (almost supertall for sure taller than the ones with goofy spires)

I'm guessing 60-80 in the next decade.

Well IMO Hong Kong doesn't. At least in Hong Kong Island......

EDIT: On topic, when does the building officially open? Maybe somewhere mid-late 2009?
