Agreed, super ugly building, and sort of a goofy spot to be in. Granted, it's a closer walk to the Newport PATH stop, but Marin Blvd, has nothing around it. I suppose people may walk to the, Mall (which really isn't the city experience) Grove St. are or HP area for restaurants, coffee, etc.
But hey, I'm not a developer.
This building is ugly beyond belief.
Even in comparison to other cheap towers going up around town by Lefrak and the like, this building looks horrible even against that low bar.
Really the architect should be ashamed.
Edit: Architect is Hollwich Kushner (HWKN)
Fully agreed on the building being horrific in terms of look and styling. Location is pretty crappy, but it does have close proximity to Hamilton Park, and there are a handful of good restaurants in that area, plus the HP's farmer market options. They are also perfectly positioned with regards to the future development of the MetroVest Plaza area, where ~15 towers will go up, along with small parks, and many amenities.
The location next to a fire station will likely get annoying for residents, though.
