landscraper
 n.— «The proposed development on the site is a nine-story, 220,000 square foot space occupying roughly half of the south side of its block on Boylston Street. While aesthetics are often subjective, local architects have taken to calling developer Ron Druker’s proposed building a “landscraper” and urban planners describe it as “Soviet” in trying to create as much rentable space as zoning laws allow.» —“MassDebate: Preserve History or Build Business?” by Kerry Skemp Bostonist (Boston, Massachusetts) July 19, 2008.
