HOUSTON – The beauty of architecture – or in this case, the lack thereof – is a subjective thing.

However, many people are agreeing that one building in particular is “the ugliest in Houston.”

On Reddit Tuesday, one user who goes by "goodeyesniperr" posted a photo of the building that now houses Darque Tan, among other businesses with the message proclaiming the building the worst of the worst aesthetically in Houston.

Another user, "lk6" wrote, “This building. I just avoid looking at it. It hurts my eyes.”

Many in the post mused about the past of the 5959 Richmond building, saying that they purchased concert tickets there at one time and others saying the building it is an '80s structure that’s been remodeled a time or two.

Others just had fun poking fun at its aesthetic.

One user, "technofiend" wrote, “Thank you for posting this because frankly I look at that building and immediately hear the Miami Vice theme song.”

Reddit user "gt35r," wrote, “I always thought that looked like some type of ‘Professor X's School for Gifted Children’ lol.”
