The land is still a vacant lot with no work started on the foundation.
Mainland media recently reported the building would break ground soon, though Broad Group denied it. The company has not provided any timetable so far.
Wang Jinyun, who works for a company that obtained a contract to build a main road in front of the proposed Sky City tower, said: "Construction work will begin in September and the target will be to complete construction by December."
The government still has safety concerns, Wang told the South China Morning Post in May, adding: "Come again in three months, you will see a big difference."
Broad Group said Sky City would have total gross floor area of 1.2 million square metres, consisting of a 220-storey main building, four wing-buildings of three to seven storeys and a four-storey basement.
A Barclays Capital report last year, released before the Sky City plan was announced, said China, which has the most skyscrapers in the world, would complete 53 per cent of the 124 skyscrapers being built over the next six years.
