It's in Florida. (Sunny Isles condos)
I like it actually. It's better than some of Miami's tallest buildings.

Just for some background on the last picture.

It's the 180m high Dai Heiwa Kinen To, or in English the PL Peace Tower located just outside of Osaka in Japan. It's a religious tower built by a religious group called PL Kyodan (Church of Perfect Liberty), it's a Cenotaph to remember all war victims in history wherever in the world.

Well this building is great in every respect....
I mean it's pretty ugly but:

If you get bored, you got a huge slide at the front: Fun is promised!
Or for all our athletic people out there: Just lose some pounds with rising steps. In all respects a nice possibility, they're indeed huge these steps but c'mon: More challenge means more warranty for shedding the kilos
And of course there's an other awesome reason why passing your pastime right here: Now watch out: These are world's first building's antennas you are able to climb from groundfoor to the top in less than 2 hours. It's great stuff, isn't it.
Don't waste any further time, and take the next flight to this town. You'll never forget.
So say it's ugly, but don't tell me it's useless

This horrendous monstrosity is the most hideous building I've ever seen. Even with cladding
