So the billboard on the South East side is still up today:

And most of the advertisement around the 2 construction sites are about the 2011 Shenzhen Universiade:

The endless loads of unsourced and random rumors fabricated by unreliable forums got something right this time? Can't believe it!

Even so who knows if it's real. We better wait till we have some serious stuff. I mean, press releases are sometimes wrong, or they measure the building from the bottom floor or whatever.

All of us who are obsessed about height are crossing our fingers that there is truth to the rumours.

Poor Shanghai anyway, they always miss 'the tallest' titles.

I really don't think that work has resumed. Both construction sites really look dead. I understand that some work in foundations are not as visible as other types of work but there is really few activity on the site, none of the main doors are opened, almost no workers etc.

Well, I stand corrected .

Alternative hypothesis of the stoppage: they stopped work on Ping'An roughly around the same time they put up walls up near the North East Corner of Coco Park in order to work on the train station. I wonder perhaps there's any connection? Futian Station is going to be a massive underground railway station and I'm sure they're pushing to get work finished by the summer Universiade.

Before it was Chicago vs. New York. Now it is Shenzen vs. Shanghai. FIGHT!

This is one of my favorites right now. I hope this and the CITIC proposal in Beijing end up being built.

So does anyone know the reason why the construction has stopped? hasn't this been for months now? Shouldn't the status be put as on-hold? Because in fact it seems to be so.

I concurre. This is what I wrote on the 13th of January, it seems like a very possible explanation.
Code:
I would maybe have another explanation. The underconstruction subway and Hong Kong Shenzhen Guangzhou express railway are under construction right beside the construction site. Would it be possible that they need to wait for the tunnels to be done and consolidated before going up?

do you know when the railway is supposed to be finished at that part?

I really like the shorter building. I didn't notice it, the first time I seen this tower.

Yesterday evening I went by the construction site and it seems dead but when you peep through the main doors you can see some night lights on top of each holes giving light to the inside of the hole. But what construction process can be so quiet and does not require cranes or trucks?
