What's with the air conditioner boxes? I hope those are temporary, they completely ruin the look of the building for me.

Maybe they're there because the workers need A/C?

I think the circular windows are a brilliant addition. I don't understand all the hate for them.

Arched windows might have looked better, but circular windows are so rare, especially fully trimmed in masonry that it's not worth complaining about to me.

I love this one. I think it could look a little bit better with some age on it, but its a lovely massing and proportion. The one sticking point I have is the white lines that go between the bricks.... I don't know how else to refer to them, not the mortar, but the larger vertical lines, I think they have something to do with expansion, but they just stick out to me... still a great building.
