An edifice is impressive.

Edifice
Pronounced < ed-ah-face >

It means:  A large impressive building.

Daily use:  The report you sent is somewhere in our edifice. 
It may be on the 87th floor.

Memory trick: 
edifice
edi (reminds of)  =  eddy (a river that flows up)
i (reminds of)  =  ah or ah!
 face = the side of a building
It flows up. Ah! (Impressed) by the face of the building.
Ah!  I am impressed by that very large building.
