It's a nice study in curves but it's a shame that the sky is so bleached out and uninteresting. You have some very clean lines here so it would not be a problem to drop in another sky in a processing package, if you have one. I feel this would enhance the building.
I'm afraid the ;light was completely against the chances of you getting a good result here. Unfortunately I'd have to say that, while you can add a better sky, there's little chance of getting a great result from the base file as the contrast is so low.
I suspect that there was a little more colour in the sky and a bit more life in the building, as you saw it.
The camera has tried to expose for the building, which is acually darker than the tone that the camera is set to expose for (called average grey) and so has been rendered lighter than it is. This has also made the very bright sky go almost white.
One of the keys to getting the image you want is to experiment with exposure and Digital has made this easier than ever, so give it a go. When you get the chance, with a similar situation, try playing with the exposure compensation feature on your 450d. Try different settings, underexpose, overexpose and see how it looks.
