I'm really liking the color scheme on that one.

Technically it's not a new building but an old one with an upper storey added and completely new decoration.
Here what it used to look (the very right building, only partially seen):


I actually don't approve such things. The mansion had modest but neat early 19th century look and didn't deserve turning into some kitschy pastiche.

^ I agree. Such things really shouldn't be done when the architect/owner have no clue what they're doing. Such things were done in other times too, especially in historicism, but in the 19th century they knew how to actually enhance a modest building with new ornaments and plaster.

I love these new apartment blocks they're building in Berlin now - so much better than most of the generic boring boxes going up in London..

Looks like a power or railway station. Maybe better in real life.

Arabian architecture needs a different perspective and standard to look at. But I'd say it looks too mall-like. Details look interesting though.

^ I have to say I don't like the facades on these. Looks like glued-on DIY precast fronts.

Maybe I am blind but I cannot see any traditional style elements in that. That is typical apartament house but in nicer cover than usually met in European cities.

Actually there's a lot of traditional British elements to be seen. It resembles affordable worker's apartments of the Victorian era across the country. Including the general structure and layout, the roofline profiles, cornices, the narrow and long windows, the sparingly decorated facades and of course the trigonal bay windows. The loggias might seem a bit unusual, as well as the French-style balcony grates.

This is an original apartment block of the Victorian era, almost the same layout, just with a stone facade instead of a brick one:

I'll take the new RAMSA skyscraper any day over that other mess. My only reservation would be that it's a shame it's so close to the iconic Woolworth building but at least it compliments it's neighbour and looks very New York rather than very anywhere!

Here's a new building built in traditional Japanese style I found while exploring Japan in Google Maps. Built around 2012 or 2013 in Takayama, Japan.

Have this one been posted before here? New Office building in Podil district in Kiev. Replaces low rise historical building. Not perfect in details but somehow lovely anyway.





The old building:
