List names 'The Ascent' as one of 10 buildings that should be demolished

COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) -

A Covington condo complex has made a list of the top 10 buildings that should be demolished.

Editors of California Home + Design asked a bunch of architects about which buildings around the country they'd like to see demolished, and why. The results were posted on Curbed, a real estate website.

Included at No. 5 on the list is The Ascent at Roebling's Bridge, the Daniel Libeskind-designed building that opened in 2008.

Architect Neal Schwartz described The Ascent as, "Just when I thought Daniel Libeskind's crass recycling of his single and dubious architectural idea had reached its apotheosis, I come across this 'gem.'"

Also included on the list was the Mall of America and Trump Tower in New York City.
