"Sky Tower" sounds lame. And I'm sure it's not original... there are probably dozens of other buildings around the world with the same name.

Sky tower is a great name, but i'm afraid that it could be possible not to be ever used. i used to work for one of the companies that bidded for it and the mall adjacent to it...but it's been more than a year since then...so i'm keeping my fingers crossed to see it up because it's my soul project.

Whether it's a good name or not is up to each person to decide I guess, but the fact is that it's not an original name at all. Here are some other buildings with the same name:

Are you kidding? Burj Dubai is reinforced concrete for most of its height.

Petronas Towers are also made with reinforced concrete.

yes guys, i'm 110% procent sure it's RC. i'm a structural engineer and i worked for this project. and if you really want to know steel structures don't necesarilly resist better to earthquake (steel has a very big problem: it buckles). they also need special provisions like braces.
the contractor has not been decided yet. and apolodor will make only the excavation. right now the special foundation (slurry walls) is done by octagon which in my opinion is quite crappy...but they were the cheapest.

it's not about soil or other technical problems here. the problems can be solved in various ways. i think here is about the thing that governs all our lives. MONEY. i think that slurry walls were too expensive with Edrasis so they hired Octagon which are a lot cheaper, but unfortunatelly they know only to do piles...so they changed solution... too bad cause under the tower a very nice sun pattern of slurry walls was dispalyed.
