The Octagon, Roosevelt Island, New York City. Used to be a mental asylum, it's now a luxury apartment complex.

I think that's a cool feature, personally.

It's my fav. in the Marina besides Infinity Tower.


Another one is Eurasia in Moscow

Tradewinds Tower, Kuala Lumpur




Perkim Building, Kuala Lumpur




Both look identical and situated about 2 km apart. I always confused them when I was a child.


Citibank Tower, Kuala Lumpur
