900 North Michigan, Chicago and 191 Peachtree Tower, Atlanta
You don't see too many towers with castle-like multiple spire-like ornaments (technical term) on top, I always thought these 2 really looked alike and shared that special connection, whether you think it is ugly or not - I personally find the style interesting in an oxymornic kind of way.

191 Peachtree Tower, Atlanta:

I always liked this proposal by KPF for a tower in Boston:

They are both attractive, but I prefer 900 North Michigan. The blocking in the windows is far better.

I have a general dislike for both of these towers. KPF's (900 Mich) is detailed better though.

I like an older take on this design, with a good example being the [b]909 Walnut[/i] in Kansas City:

900 N Michagan is one of my least favorite skyscrapers in the world. 191 Peachtree doesn't look quite as bad.

What about the Liberty Building in Buffalo:
