The building pictured to the right, 40 Bond Street, is not necessarily a new building. The Ian Schrager-developed and Herzog de Meuron-designed residences were completed in 2007 to relative fanfare and approving reviews. The Observer's Max Abelson wrote, "If you can avert your eyes from the building's genuinely hideous faux-graffiti cast-aluminum gates, the building's curvy and oceanic green glass is a wonder to behold." Curbed listed it as one of their "Best New Buildings of the Decade." So why give it any more attention? Because DAMN, that is one butt-ugly building.
