They're camouflaging themselves pretty well though
So I'd give them 3 out of 5 stars on the ugliness scale.

What to say about Brazil?

The rich love neoclassic crap... one of the richest cities in Brazil, the beach city of Balneario Camboriu has dozens of kitsch buildings...

From the distance the skyline is very nice:



but...



hopefully a super tall never built:



... almost 200 meters of kitsch



look at the lobby render:

Give me $615 million, and I can commission something that doesn't look like a 1990s office park.

One of New York's favorites? Such an assumption is sacrilege. The only reason for its current popularity is because of all the press its getting...

What else do you expect to happen? People to kiss the ground it's built on? Most people couldn't care less about skyscrapers.

Even so there seems to be a much greater ratio of good to bad publicity on this building in the media. Business Insider and the Daily Mail apparently think it's a good looking building. Most of the bad reporting seems to be about inequality.
