Most unique and coolest mixed-used structures

Let us start a thread of the coolest and/or most unique mixed-used structures in the world. For this thread, it is important, that the functions have an influence on the design of the structure.

1.) Wolfsberg Water Tower, Vienna ( https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wasserturm_Wolfersberg )



Water tower with a radio tower, insulated against ground, used for a NDB-transmitter on the top. Also used for FM-broadcasting.

2.) Anlage 4101, Mast 93 ( https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anlage_4101,_Mast_93 )



Electricity pylon, which carried from 1977 to 2010 a public observation deck

3.) Henningerturm ( https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henninger-Turm )



Former silo of Henniger brewery, equipped with two revolving restaurants, demolished in 2013

4.) Berliner Funkturm ( https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berliner_Funkturm )



On the first view looking not special, but when you look on its feet, you see that it stands on electric insulators! It is probably the only tower accessible for the public, which stands on insulators.



5.) Chimney of Kashira Power Plant, which serves also as electricity pylon. Such objects can be found at several thermal power plants in areas, which were once part of the Soviet Union



6.) Chimney of former Bruchsal slaughterhouse, an interesting combination of water tower and chimney



Please post your examples!

I know a further interesting example:
Globala gymnasiet in Stockholm, which has on its roof a guyed mast radiator for the NDB-transmitter "OU", working on 322 kHz
