It's actually a replica. The old building was torn down in 2012 and a new built in it's place with identical exterior.

For those of you who are interested in learning the venerable craft of stone masonry, be sure to check out the Worshipful Company of Masons, a guild with a history dating back to the 17th century.

There certainly is room for improvement, but I don't think it's that bad at all. The biggest issues for me are the somewhat tacky balustrades and the upper setbacked storey. It still adds a lot more vibe than any of those sloppy bare concrete facades that show no effort or affection at all.
