Third crane jumped and you already can't see the horizontal core beam anymore. I assume that they will add more steel parts toady or latest tmw. They really work fast.

^Not quite, it's a huge country after all.

But I'd wager that there are more buildings under construction in China at the moment than there are buildings in total in some smaller countries. Not sure if that holds up if you count private homes, though.

That depends on whether you see Abraj Al-Bait as one building or just count the clock tower.

Yes, it will be second tallest.
