it can't be the tallest building in the world because the Taipe 101 is completed since 2004 and 16m taller . it only will have the highest roof for a short time

"Tallest" or "world tallest" sounds always better on TV.

Please refer to SSC for accurate infos

There are four recognized categories for "tallest building". This will occupy one of the four categories for a while so technically it's not an incorrect statement.

'Everybody' says 'their' building will be the tallest, but not all will look as good as this one!

I wonder why its taking them awhile to complete the top? Is there something more special they are putting in there besides the Observatory? Maybe the counter-earthquake device or something?
