Probably just because it's not plain glass.
I like this building as well because of its unique design.

I think plain glass would make it lose its appeal. It has that certain industrial look with the black metal structure, very futuristic stuff for its time.

that building is ok, the only problem is its current state and maybe it would deserve better cladding eg glass

Not so bad. It could have done without the slanted base and the floors with the diagonal beams .

I think the slanted base really gives that 80s vibe.

Architectural blunder by Richard Rogers:
Hotel Hesperia Tower, L´Hospitalet de Llobregat, Spain






Very few buildings can pull off the 80s-sci fi movie look; this is not one of them.
