Either they're waaay confused about Kingdom Tower's completion date or they believe Sky City will be finished before 2016 (the latter is unlikely since they say Ping An will be the tallest in China.) Or they're just average clueless journalists.

These days 'clueless journalist' is a redundant term.

Very true . Anyways, Ping An will be the 2nd tallest Skyscraper in earth when completed, and nothing can change that fact. Not even Sky City.

They can't be thinking about the Zhongnan Center, it will be years before it's completed.

The Ping An Finance Center, seen here under construction Tuesday, just became the tallest building in Shenzhen, reaching 448.3 meters by the time of this photo. The structure recently surpassed the 441.8-meter KK 100 building. Upon its expected completion in 2016, the building will be 660m tall with 115 stories, making it the third-tallest building in the world, as well as the tallest in China.

Few days ago I heared a tourist guide at the Bund to the tourists in SH that the Shanghai tower will be 666 m tall

I think Shenzen Daily has advance knowledge of a new 750m tower in North Korea that hasn't been unveiled to the world yet...

I'm amazed at how fast these Chinese towers are rising.

This tower would be finished in 2100 probably, so it's irrelevant
