Reductio ad minimum: Late Middle East Sheik's lengthy moniker pruned to the honorific plus one surname only on TMC Building signage honoring his post-humous generosity

From a mouthful of a medical tower
to a truncated moniker 
[Now pronounceable TMC destination news]   



"The Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan Building 
for Personalized Cancer Care
is down to 
Sheikh Zayed Building 
for the passing public on the trails lining Brays Bayou.   



(See emporis entry for building details) 


Like they say: Everything is bigger in Texas. For background on the gift in a rather nontrivial amount, and the uses it is being put to, see MD Anderson Cancer Center webpage:
