I looked at that building on the way home today, it got new cladding but it looks worse because they took off the cool lettering.

They do exist, just not as common. There is actually one right by our downtown, in an historic neighbourhood. In that context, it actually isn't too bad (it has trees on the lot and everything), but it still pales in comparison to the turn of the century mansions around it.

Across the street is a beautiful Romanesque house. Another one here at the northernmost reach of the city. (This house is further north than Timmins.) Around it are houses from basically every year since 1945.

I actually kinda like this building, but most people seem to have a hatred of old apartment blocks and it has a good name:

i used to live on the 32nd floor of this monster. haha. the only realy good thing i liked about it was the glass elevators. most of the time my not so good freinds wouldent visit because they were afraid of them. that is good. and anouther thing is, when the stampede is on, the fireworks exploded right infront of my 32nd floor belcony. that was good as well. so while it may be ugly, and it is, i found a few good points along the way.

I worked with a girl who lived in Bromley last year, heard a few crazy stories about that place. It was home to this Darwin award winner who jumped down the garbage chute after a night of Stampeding - he didn't realize there was an automatic compactor at the bottom:

Downtown Vancouver ugly:


Ugly Downtown Building by entheos_fog, on Flickr

This is an unanimously ugly and soul-destroying building, right in the heart of downtown on Granville street:

Vancouver Aquatic Centre, located right on False Creek and not a window on this bunker at all:

That Venetian is horrid. It wouldn't be quite so bad if it was just one colour.
London excels at ugly concreter apt towers which they continue to build both downtown and in the suburbs.
i don't mind Vancouver's Aquatic Centre but the CBC building on the other is in a league of it's own.
Vancouver also has half on the entire city with the horrid "Vancouver specials" housing. The thing that makes them even worse is that some go fo close to a million bucks.
