What about a "high-sore"?.....like an eyesore ie. an incredibly ugly blemish of a tower in the city.

Kinda sounds like a form of herpes though. Maybe there is a better term. Ha.

A well known term that needed to be defined from a skyscraper point of view: the landmark.

You know that feeling of not using anything because of its proximity? In skyscraperland, it's called urban lazy.

A spire is off course a term that has been out there for more than a century, but sometimes you just need to include a term just to define what it is not.
