They are luckily partially recladding it to make it less of an eyesore.
WTF...

This is a decent building (nothing spectacular), but these windows with the cross beams clearly visible completely ruin the design.

^Never cared for the verizon building (375 Pearl). The recladding does not help in the least.

Arguably the ugliest in Rotterdam is 'de Splinter', a building that was once white, but even then with a bland concrete facade, now ugly and dirty as well:

I don't understand why they'd use a different colored glass than whats already used in the building.

This complex of buildings in Zhuhai. What's worse is that there will be a 189m-tall building that will look the same of these towers. Ew.

I believe this building will get some new renovation, or something.. but it would be better to get rid of this.

I can't decide if they were going for LEGOs or pixelated look.

That's the Balfron Tower (84m) by Ernő Goldfinger. It's also actually Grade II listed, so it will not be going anywhere.

^Holy moly, now that is something.

I really dislike the renovation of the verizon building in Manhattan. It just ruins the entire building.

That one could be nicely art-deco if it was renovated. It's ugly because of its poor condition.

I've been following this thread for a while now and I'm quite surprised that no one has mentioned this ugly bastard yet.

In tempo 190m 47fl, currently Europe's tallest residential, and most definitely the ugliest too. I'm quite ashamed that this was built in my country, but at least it didn't ruined any city bc it's built in Benidorm which was ugly af from the start. I'm pretty sure that this building would only fit in Macau.
