Montparnassed

When a neighborhood of low-midrise historic structures gets an unwelcome skyscraping interloper. That neighborhood has been Montparnassed.

One hideous example of this is the Neudeflat in Utrecht, built in the middle of the historical city centre:

Problem with developments like these is that they give highrises a bad name.

How can you call a skyscraper that was initially planned shorter, but during construction it was decided to increase height several times?

^ good one. Morescraper perhaps? There are skyscrapers that have a staged development, such as Blue Cross Blue Shield in Chicago, but the Tempo tower in Benidorm was heightened during construction.

Any other examples we can think of?

Not directly about skyscrapers, but still an interesting proposal:
Moscowization or dotted construction - new construction on former public spaces, like parks, squares, streets or just empty space among the existing buildings (but not ghetto), increasing the total urban density. Common practice in Moscow and other Russian cities since 1990s. The most known example is Moscow shopping center Atrium, built directly on the site of the former Kursk railway station square in 2000. Or business center White Gardens, constructed on a former tramway loop.

Good one. "Densification of an existing Modern landscape" would be a proper definition.
