Maybe that would be nice if renovated. Or demolished...
Oh you mean the sokos hotel/department store. It´s not a concrete block and looks much better from the other side:http://www.korttelit.fi/rakennus.php/id/244. It was built in 1942.

Not that I like it very much.

It looks better on that corner, indeed. I can live with that, but bit's still not a beauty.

All soviet neo-classical "donations" should be removed from all East European capitals.

this one is from Sofia.

I think the soviet buildings are a part of the history of a city and country. Some of them are ugly or in bad condition and could be demolished. But I think others are well worth remaining as a collective, urban memory to the soviet 'occupation'.

Honestly, it's not that bad. I've seen worse! Atleast it's not a commie block!

I like that building. Very nice!
You can't delete the past by removing the buildings of that past...

A lot of great palaces in the world were built for former dictators and built by slaves...
That's no reason to destroy them. Will you demolish the palaces of the Tsars, the Palace of Versailles or the pyramides of Egypt and Mexico?...

I know lots of cities that would love to take that 'off your hands'. Ship it to Toronto please!

The ugliest yet the most common monstrosity is the ugly box ultra size market. Exists in all developed countries in one form or another?

This building looks clean and in a high quality, although it is also ugly.

There is one major housing complex in the island of Zanzibar (off the coast of Tanzania) and it's seveely decrepit that we should let it pass away. This complex was built in the early 70s by Michenzani. Also, I am considering a haussmannisation of Zanzibar. Here is a photo of the complex:
