This is usually the case in other cities with higher densities, lots of average filler buildings surrounded by a few nice ones.Surround it by trees, widen the sidewalk on 14 Street, and add 25 other buildings of around the same scale in all directions. No one will notice any weird colour and material choices. It's the secret to urban density the world over.
If that's not enough on it's own, by the time all that happens in about 25 - 50 years, the exterior of this one will be up for it's lifecycle replacement anyways and the owner will go with something cheap and standardized.
Though the building is nothing to write home about I wouldn’t call it ugly, I’ve seen much worse. It’s unfortunate it’s on a busy corner, but outside of that it does its job.
