Your problem with this building is misguided in that it isn't a building at all. It is a transformer and it is just dormant waiting for a signal to awake and lay waste to all in its path..........either that or it is just ugly.

I love Place Ville Marie. One of my favorite buildings and one of the buildings that got me interested in skyscrapers as a youngster.
