Israel Finkelstein writes

There are several options regarding its territorial affiliation: Judah according to Garfinkel; a late Canaanite entity in the Shephelah (Naaman, Koch) ;or a north Israelite entity which had its hub in the highlands to the north of Jerusalem (Finkelstein and Fantalkini). This is a true dispute, with many interesting possibilities for historical reconstruction.

The notion that it must be David’s Palace is just one possibility among many, and the least convincing so far as the evidence of the site itself offers.
