It almost looks as though he went to great pains to make this building as ugly as possible and to make it stick out like a sore thumb,” Berman observed. Two years ago, G.V.S.H.P. and local residents began lobbying the Department of Buildings not to grant the project a permit, since the Far West Village rezoning, which would have prevented the height, was pending approval. Despite their protests, and videos of alleged after-hours work violations, D.O.B. issued the permit. The construction involved adding an 11-story addition atop a three-story former stable for a 167-foot-tall building.

First thing I pictured was seeing that on Harrisburg blvd. It would fit in just right!

No joke.

Fiesta Headquarters was 2nd thing that came to mind. Pinatas for chandeliers? Cool
