Help! Looking for a building...

I'm trying to find a building I saw, but don't know where.

It is a circular or oval glass building with a tilted roof, maybe 10-15 stories high.

It's shape like a cone, with its top truncated at an angle.
It look like this: http://www.ms.uky.edu/~lee/visual05/povray/conic.bmp

It's a recent modern building.
Could be in New York, Chicago, Toronto ???

I need you to recognize this building, cause I don't know how to look for it...

Thanks

That's a nice building!
It's not the one I'm looking for, but it's much like it.
I'm now sure it is in Toronto.
