Originally built in the 1970s as a telephone switching station, this concrete skyscraper at 375 Pearl Street in New York City is considered by most in the city as an absolute eyesore. True, its not falling apart. Nor is it rat infested. And it isn't covered with graffitti.
But it is one, very tall, 32-stories tall in fact, long piece of concrete with no similarly towering neighbors to hide it. And it gets in the way of panoramic photographs of the Brooklyn Bridge.
Today it is an empty, giant Verizon billboard. But someone will buy it.... if the numbers work.
It ain't about how it looks (though curb appeal is important with any property). With commercial/investment properties, it is about the numbers.
