Why is Liberty Tower different from Freedom Tower? For me as a non-native English speaker it seems so similar...

Although many of us are highly anticipating it's completetion,I have to go with the BURJ DUBAI.I guess from an american point of veiw,it sounds very cheezy for such a record breaking skyscraper.Though I'm sure the name in Arabia means something more powerful.Anyone know?It will be awesome regardless

- Torre Mayor which means Bigger Tower or Older Tower
I think it was named like that in honor of the principal Aztec temple in Tenochtitlan (the Aztec capital) which is known as the "Templo Mayor."

Now, if you want pathetic lame names you have the Freedom Tower, and the Burj Dubai.

I think it means Dubai Tower or something in Arabic. Still a pretty stupid name for what looks like a 2000+ foot *****. They should call it Dubai Manhood. Because if the Middle East had a dick, this would be it.

And these would be the nuts.

I don't know where the problem is. LIberty Tower is such a nice idea. Or Freedom Tower. Who doesn't want freedom and liberty? Everyone wants to live in freedom, and for many many people, the USA mean exactly this. There are people from all over the world looking for freedom in the USA. They risk their lives to reach the USA searching freedom. So, it cannot be that wrong to build it in one of the most liberal and free cities oin the world!

That's the Smufit Stone Building, formerly the Stone Container Building.

What are you talking about?

dubai has such stupid names sometimes, just have a look in the UAE forum.
Such as tiffany tower... google it in the web please
or... Al Burj = the tower, funny thing, there is already a tower known as "the tower" in english, though its actual name is UP Tower.
or.. 23 marina.
or all the JBR towers, they are called D01-03 or A02-03 lol.
and... for the football fans,... chelsea tower
or .. 21st century tower....tallest res tower in the world.
and there are at least 10 towers in JLT with the most crappiest names i have ever seen. Dubai Arch tower
or New Dubai Gate and New Dubai Gate 2
or the Icon towers.
or Dubai Star...
you see, a lot of crappy names around in dubai.

The name "Freedom Tower" was brought up by NY Governor George Pataki, not Daniel Libeskind as some claim it.
