my guess is that the answer is political.

Taipei 101 has been mentioned in the general press, but not very prominently (the BBC tried to be quite dismissive). Considering that China is very sensitive about Taiwan, and that China and the European Union are talking of becoming very serious trading partners, that could mean that the press of the Far East, Europe and the USA may be cautious about giving too much prominence to Taiwan successes.

having "the tallest" in Taipei will not cause much humour in Shanghai.
