The Hyatt in Birmingham, UK. Is pure Sex!

This is the ultimate black building and has been in Brum since the 70s.

I've heard mixed reactions about this one but it'll look fantastic from ground level and from far away.
What building is this?

I'm not a fan of black or any other dark colour on a skyscraper. I just think it makes them look too blocky etc

Ideal House, London, UK

I know it's not a "skyscraper" - but it is the most beautiful "black" building ever, IMO.

Art Deco masterpiece built in the late 20's.

It is not noted or shown enough.
