Some lunatic posted it in the 'ugliest skyscraper' thread a few days ago.

God knows why, it's an interesting shape and, with good cladding, should be stunning.

Just wondering... shouldn't this thread be called:
PANAMA CITY | Torre Financiera Panama | 428m | Pro, rather than Financial Tower. Especially because this is what CTBUH recognises the building as, so it is clearly it's official name regardless of the language...

Why, every tower has an English name. Is that name already decided?

Any reason to keep this thread alive? Will remove it in case nobody answers either.
