Ugly Building to Go Downtown

BoTalks writes: Did anyone see the Daily Progress article on the exceptionally ugly building that apparently will be built on 10th St NW? (See “Center’s Look New for City“). The web article doesn’t have a picture of the building, but it is butt ugly! It looks like some kind of bank building built on U.S. 1 in Fort Lauderdale back in the ’80s. The developer is calling it a “little taste of Florida”. Apparently it was allowed by right, meaning the city didn’t have any leverage on the design. I’m all for increasing density in the city, but isn’t there any standard to which we can hold bad architecture accountable?
