“Historic skyscraper but looks out of place now.”
Review of KBC Tower

KBC Tower
Reviewed October 28, 2013

Not pretty but do take a look at some of the detail, from afar ugly from close up still ugly but some redeeming features. Please don't just pass by it won't take long to look a bit deeper.

The first skyscraper in Europe (95.8m) in Art-deco style. Constructed beteen 1923 and 1932.
The tallest building in Antwerp.

This is one of the oldest tallest buildings in Belgium. And a guidebook actually said "best viewed from outside".

There is nothing attractive about this building. It might have been well ahead it's time when it was built but it doesn't seem to stand up to the glory it once would have had. It's just a shabby old 'scyscrapper'.

Boring, no use anymore, panorama-room not often open, just some part of the skyline, and it just a building that looks ugly
