There was a supertall planned for Houston which resembles the tallest building in Philadelphia but it was never built.

Not sure if this one has been mentioned before, but the Sheraton Center in Toronto is awful.

M2 Building

Is it just me, or does that building look a little like a steam train?

It is appalling. Breathtakingly so.
Wasn't there also a question of its structural soundness?

I can't believe I share the same zip code as this thing.

Their slogan is, "Nothing Comes Close". Well, it is a lie (since there are more ugly towers). But they aren't far from it.

For me definitely Sears. It's like they were saying: "Lets make a 450m high BLOCK and lets stick more blocks on it." And the color-it isnt even a color- is so depressing! They could have made it 800m by just make the blocks bigger and duller.
