The property at 166 Smith Street in Brooklyn, once known for being one of the ugliest buildings in the city, has been redeveloped into a three-story rental building with storefronts on the ground floor, the New York Observer reported.

The MTA-owned building at the corner of Smith and Wyckoff in Cobble Hill made am New York’s “top 10 fugliest buildings” list in 2008, when they described it as, “a windowless two-story bunker from the ’20s that was encased in concrete a few years ago and now looks like it could withstand a nuclear blast.”

Monthly rents range from $4,750 for a second-floor one-bedroom with home office to $7,995 for a three-bedroom duplex with home office. Every unit has private outdoor space, for those who want to give their neighbors a taste of their own medicine.

“One of the unique things about the project is that it’s all private outdoor spaces,” said Douglas Elliman broker Dena Driver, who shares the rental’s listings with Juliet Pannone. “So instead of doing a roof deck, the developer decided it would be more valuable to have a layout where either there’s an adjacent deck or a sectioned-off area on the roof, with a very high fence.” [NYO] – James Comtois
