The tallest building in China -- a 2,000-foot skyscraper in Shanghai -- is finally ready

The 127-story Shanghai Tower is now the tallest building in China and the second tallest in the world. From breaking ground to completion, the building took almost seven years to complete.

It stands 2,073 feet high, behind only the Burj Khalifa in Dubai (2,717 feet).
