It's a name of the housing cooperative, sometimes they feel the urge to put their name and/or logo on buildings they administrate but it's not a norm. They operate in the free market so it's not public and the rent can be pretty high. As for the number it's just an address but to make it that big is not very common.

Much nicer. I love when red and grey is used as a colour combination...

Some stylish residential blocks in Paris, CitÚ Michelet, are being renovated! Amazing what a fresh coat of paint can do.

I actually think the old one looked nicer. It should have been painted white or another light, neutral colour and its windows replaced.

Yes, it looked far more interesting than this mediocre office block.

I think it's still residential. At least it now gives some diversity in the area.

Considering how amazing a project shown here on SSC forums was, this building turned out ugly. Someone had an idea to have it all white, with grey fills and green elements. It could have been something remarkable, but it seems that people still prefer the "warm and happy colors of joy" ...

Yeah that would have been better. Of course, with matching windows, as well.
