How'd you like to live next door to this?

A construction nightmare in Carroll Gardens nicknamed the "Hell Building" by critics could remain an eyesore for the foreseeable future - if it's ever built.

Nearly three years after a Buildings Department permit was granted to convert the Regency Service Carts building on Carroll St. into a five-story luxury condo tower, construction has ground to a halt.

The result is a messy construction site with no major work going on for more than a year and a half - and neighbors fear it will remain an eyesore for months to come.

The most recent Buildings Department stop-work order was issued after controversial architect Robert Scarano had inaccurately claimed the building was zoned to allow for the additional stories.

In Carroll Gardens, 'hell' tower freezes over as eyesore still unfinished

Who else but Bobby "the hairpece"
Scarano would top off a building with something as ridiculous looking
as that pompadour rug that crowns
his bald pate!
