Sorry, I get these from Polish websites and it's hard for me to figure out exactly where everything is

It's a good looking building and I'm glad they replaced the clunky white UPVC window frames with something more era-correct.
Now to renovate the buildings behind it.

Nice
But in Europe it is very simple. In many cases, you just have to paint the building and it's brand new.
Italy was an exception some threads ago...

Is that a good thing though
It's considered as a rather bad example in Poland, although there is some style to it.
