Verizon's Pearl Street Building to Stay Ugly?

New, 5 comments

Looming windowlessly over the Brooklyn Bridge, Verizon's 375 Pearl Street has always looked evil, but now it may actually be evil. The city is a wee bit upset that Verizon apparently built the tower with way more "usable" space than it was supposed to. Verizon tried to hide this by labeling the space as "mechanical," but the truth came out when Verizon sold off most of the building to Taconic, which revealed the true size while touting the sale. The city is seeking millions, and this may derail the plans to de-uglify the building. [Trib Trib]
