I'm always in favor of architectural revivals, assuming high-quality materials are going to be used in construction. A real statue or ornamentation look good, but it just looks cheap if they're going to use styrofoam and fake stucco.

My own city's tallest is getting a "neo-deco" makeover that is well underway right now. We're going from this... this.
