So, what do people on the street (Houston Street, that is) have to say about 290 Mulberry, the wavy brown facade residential building designed by noted architects SHoP? The Real Estate gathers up these reactions: "It's really awful. It looks like a prison. I'm trying to find one good thing to say about it," says one. Offers another, "It's sort of ugly, and yet, it's sort of interesting, too. You have to really look closely at it in order to appreciate it, because at first glance it's just an ugly brick building."
