I think that too. For example:

- We have to find the name of the building. Can you help me?
- Yes, but I don't know. What are you building exactly?
- A skyscraper.
- Oh, great, the name will be: "The Skyscraper".
- Yeah, it sounds cool!

It doesn't seem very original. But I like the building, it's not very innovative but it's elegant.

Errr ... give it a rest people. The Skyscraper is NOT the name of this tower, is just a working title used by the developer.

They will just call it by area and number, like Marina 106.
Oh, wait, they have already done that...

It was already said that is only a working title. A tower named The Tower is already existing along SZR.

Haha they might as well start giving them coded numbers for names. The Skyscraper, huh?

Nice design though, I'm sure it will be another impressive structure in Dubai.

Whatever. So how many piles are completed? Does anybody know what the completion date is for this building?
