Literally: high layer establishment

  • : high
  • : layer
  • : establish
  • : thing

Besides "layer," 층 means "floor" or "storey", which is a more suitable translation in this case.

I wrote skyscraper... is it wrong?

Nope it should be accepted, probably moreso than high-rise building

High-rise building is redundant. At least make it acceptable to just put high-rise.

It should also be skyscraper...
