Who told you it's a skyscraper? It's a communication cum observation tower and such towers are allowed in this section.

It will have a rotating restaurant and a water park. Due to be finished late 2016 I believe.

It's a Latin word, not the English one you're thinking of. It means "with", but in the context of his post you can loosely translate it as "and".

In Indian english, cum means 'and' or '&' or '/'.

Hmm, this is an interesting surprise. The design isn't too bad- the top reminds me of the planned crown for the Burj al Alam project in Dubai. Execution will be everything- if the observation dome section is done properly, it will be beautiful.
