Let's start with a 119m skyscraper in Paris, La Défense, called "Tour Winterthur". It is therefore around 20m higher than "Wintower", the highest skyscraper in Winterhur itself. It has got and kept its name from the original builder-owner, the "Winterthur insurance".

Why actually not call the next skyscraper in Winterthur "Winter Tour"?

Looks like an economic concept building which could be multiplicated in many small regional centers in western, central and eastern Africa. Simple concept - big impact.
