Not a building, but I find the Crystal Palace transmitter in South London very imposing.

Especially when standing underneath it.

I've always found the Libertador Building in Buenos Aires imposing.

My first ever post here so hi all.

I imagine that what's imposing or not also depends on setting. If you stand on the Headrow in Leeds this building stands at the end of the street and is very imposing in it's own setting:

Quarry House, Leeds, UK:

I personally believe it's the Tokyo Sky Tree (it already is). The location it's in has basically no highrises at all.
