China tallest building, Shanghai Tower, gets final beam
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-23559852

Quote:
Work on the main structure of China's tallest building, the Shanghai Tower, has been completed.

A flag-waving ceremony took place as the last steel beam was hoisted and installed at the top of the skyscraper.

Once completed, the structure will reach over 630m, making it the second-tallest building in the world after the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.

Dubai? I think we're talking of slightly different scale here. A few tall skyscrapers around one road don't really compare to what's been happening in Chinese cities lately.
