There is no common Asian, as the term 'Asian' is vague and has no substantive meaning. Asia is the largest continent by population and it has more ethnic races and native languages than rest of the world combined. I'm Bangladeshi and we have no similarity with the Chinese or Arabs in terms of culture (there are 170 million people in my country). So Arabs are as much 'Asian' as we are.

Shanghai Tower is not yet ranked as it is not completed. Makkah Royal Clock Tower Hotel was ranked in 2012 as the second tallest building even if it is not clear that it is completed.
