12 Abandoned Skyscrapers



Skyscrapers are a huge investment to build, are placed on pricey urban real estate, and contain lots of rental space, so you might be surprised that any are completely unused. Some are victims of poor planning; others are abandoned when the area suffers financial decline. Some of the older towers are unsafe due to age or toxic materials. The building shown here is Michigan Central Station in Detroit, built in 1913. See twelve such empty buildings at Web Urbanist. Link -via Rue the Day

I live near Olympia, Washington, which has one of these blighting the town waterfront; it's one of the tallest buildings in town, and it's been unoccupied for years. Ugly looking thing; they should just demolish it.
