It’s been called “The ugliest building in Queens,” and once won a “Frank Lloyd Crap” award.
Now, the “Climate Change Row House” — aka the Lego House — is on the market for $3.6 million.
The 3,487-square-foot property, at 45-12 11th St. in Long Island City, Queens, was originally built in 1903, and rebuilt in 2014 by its owner, architect Thomas Paino, to passive-house standards.
The 3-year renovation elevated the home’s basement out of the floodplain and made it more environmentally friendly.
But it was a new multicolor tile façade that got real estate watchers talking.
The home also includes a rooftop solarium, triple-pane windows for temperature and sound insulation and a hospital-grade air filtration system — a nice selling point during a pandemic.
Rupert Murdoch's gazette neglected to credit this blog for the Frank Lloyd Crap designation.
