A Flat block.

Depending on where you live, you will refer to this building as a tower block, and apartment block, a high-rise apartment building, or an MDU short for Multi Dwelling Unit.

In South Africa we refert to it as a block of flats. I wondered where this term originated, until I spotted this one. It looks so flat - almost like it's a cardboard cutout.
