No it doesn't . Shangai Tower will be the tallest building in China when complete . While the reign may be short-lived , there won't be anything taller for months at least .

How long shall it take to build the Tower 1,8 m higher so as to reach 304,8 m?

Are there any recent pictures from the uppermost observation deck of Jin Mao Tower?

It will remain the tallest by roof though, pingan isn't even out of the ground yet, and it's only taller by pinnacle.
