for one, it is certainly a man_made=tower. It might also be a office and a
building=office_tower (?maybe)
Not sure about the tower type, but if you map other properties like the
antennas, the offices, etc. I am not even sure you'll need a subtype, also
because if we map things like water towers, cooling towers and towers to
dry fire hoses[1] (to name a few examples) with specific main tags, we will
much less feel the need for type-subtagging in general, and can concentrate
on the features they provide.
