The art-deco ARO Building in Bucharest is structurally unstable but there is no money to do anything to it.


The Tehnoimport Building from the same era is also structurally unstable.

Virtually every historic old Victorian building in Chicago is in danger of being demolished for McMansions at one time or another, due to the city's backward system for dealing with historic properties.

Bay Harbour Continental, Miami, FL, USA (1958)
Architect: Charles F. McKirahan






It actually had a historic protection designation, but it was actually removed by greedy developers. It's set to be demolished shortly.
