It's certainly a building, but just like the CN Tower in Toronto, it's not a skyscraper (defined as a tall high-rise) and so I don't understand why this thread is even on the Supertall Construction forum. Supertall refers to a skyscraper that's above 300 m, so the Supertall Construction forum shouldn't include non-skyscrapers such as towers. The Diagrams page does get it right, classifying the Dubai Creek Tower as a tower instead of high-rise.

ADMINS: Please consider moving this thread to a different forum.
