The great thing about now, and China, is you just have to wait 6 months and someone will re-use a plan and build the scraper that you like the most.

The size comparison is a nice touch. Looks pretty high already!

Dubai has to worry about finishing its current slow projects before even thinking of starting anything taller.

Go 10 years into the future and Saudi Arabia will likely have (2) Towers over 1 Km.

Let's not forget that Burj Khalifa is still the tallest building in the world, and by quite a big margin. Kingdom Tower will eventually get finished... until then, not too much to worry about for Dubai.

Once Kingdom Tower is fully operational, then Dubai will once again have a challenge.

Back on topic... really loving the Ping An Finance Center!

Not likely. There is no other tower proposed that will be over +1km (at least that I know of ) 10 years is too soon, maybe 15 or 20 years IMO.

Great to see the glass.
I can see brackets on the supercolumns, but not on the edge of the floors. How are the panels attached to the floors?
