Looks hideous. I can't believe people seriously want to save the thing.

Itĺs sooo important that it must be saved with ôpublicö money.

Yet, the Church is looking to give it away and there are no takers.

Let demolition experts use it for training then give away the rubble to road construction contractors.

It has potential.

A nice fixer-upper for a villainous mastermind looking for his or her first lair.

It would look a lot better had they not used that pebble-like facade. They might have been going for warmth and missed and instead the facade brought incongruity to the building and disrupted the look and so the elements don't fit together.
