  1. Why do these projects have to be so inept? Did “Bricolage” actually get a degree in architecture? It’s so sad that with the same pile of materials and the same budget, any graduate of an accredited architecture school ought to be able to design something far better than this. Anyone involved in the design of this pile of rubbish ought to be ashamed. Everyone deserves good architecture, not just market-rate clients.

    • DOB needs to up the aesthetic standards but so much damage has already been done. Just look at all the fedders eyesores, and that was happening for decades.

  2. Bricolage and Badaly and a handful of others out to be run out of town on a rail.

  3. Look at the bathroom. This is a new building? I mean really.

  4. The kitchen and bathroom are total garbage. Thankfully Bricolage is only intermittently pooping out buildings now instead of 5 a week like the mid-2000s.

  5. Application please
