Windows to the soul
Last August when Crappy was a guest on Curbed, I featured the Powerhouse in LIC as an example of what not to do when adaptively reusing a building. Of course, the typical "you're just jealous", "the building is going to be beautiful" and "this is a Karl Fischer project!" comments were hurled. Well, here we are a few short months later and opinion on Curbed seems to have turned against the poorly designed condo. Add to that the fact that they are advertising the place by transposing windows on a woman's ass, as pointed out by Copyranter, and it proves just how high class the place truly is. According to the NY Times, "30 percent [of the units] have sold since October".
