These corner building have character, unlike modern monstrosities.
After passage of time, everything acquires character. But I am sure that residents objected to those buildings when they were built and also called them monstrosities. You know about the Eiffel Tower protests.

Oh good! Maybe there's hope for me!

And, no, I wasn't aware that people protested the Eiffel Tower...but in reality, the architecture of the Eiffel Tower is kind of "stark"...
You mean you should gain character? Are you a flippant Monkey?
www.toureiffel.paris/en/everything-about-the-tower/themed-files/71.html ""We come, we writers, painters, sculptors, architects, lovers of the beauty of Paris which was until now intact, to protest with all our strength and all our indignation, in the name of the underestimated taste of the French, in the name of French art and history under threat, against the erection in the very heart of our capital, of the useless and monstrous Eiffel Tower which popular ill-feeling, so often an arbiter of good sense and justice, has already christened the Tower of Babel. (...) Is the City of Paris any longer to associate itself with the baroque and mercantile fancies of a builder of machines, thereby making itself irreparably ugly and bringing dishonour ? (...)
To comprehend what we are arguing one only needs to imagine for a moment a tower of ridiculous vertiginous height dominating Paris,just like a gigantic black factory chimney, its barbarous mass overwhelming and humiliating all our monuments and belittling our works of architecture, which will just disappear before this stupefying folly.
And for twenty years we shall see spreading across the whole city, a city shimmering with the genius of so many centuries, we shall see spreading like an ink stain, the odious shadow of this odious column of bolted metal.
