Plaza Perangsang in Shah Alam, Malaysia. It literally means "Evoking Plaza".. The word 'perangsang' in Malay can also mean 'to arouse'

Burj Dubai... as a to-be the world's tallest building in the world, it has to have the city's name in it to record in the Guiness Book of Record.. So people would know where Dubai is.

The CN Tower also has Canada's name in it, if you pronounce the whole thing.

There is a tower under constrction in Manchester called 'Sarah Tower' which is a little bit lame. Freedom Tower is the worst though; it reminds me of those Americans who changed the name of french fries to freedom fries when France didn't back the Iraq war
