well, maybe it's the second tallest building (not structure) for now, but in the near future there are several towers who will exceed 600m (f.e. the shanghai tower, where construction is amazingly fast). btw i like the building, its massiveness is a big plus for me.

Yes, under construction to be sure, the Shanghai Tower and not so far, the 597 m's China 117 of Tianjin for now. The others are not begin construction or have only construction ceremony like the korean 640 m DMC Lite and I exclude the Pentominium because doubt about his spire.
