His name is “The ugliest building in Queens, “and once won a “Frank Lloyd Crap” award.

Now the “Row house on climate change”- aka the Lego House – is on the market for $ 3.6 million.

The 3,487 square foot property at 45-12 11th St. in Long Island City, Queens, was built in 1903, and rebuilt in 2014 by its owner, architect Thomas Paino, to passive house standards.

The 3 year renovation raised the basement of the house out of the floodplain and made it more environmentally friendly.

But it was a new facade of multicolored tiles that made real estate watchers talk.

The house also includes a rooftop solarium, triple-glazed windows for thermal and sound insulation, and a hospital-grade air filtration system – a good selling point during a pandemic.

There’s also a solar-heated water system that cuts down on bills and a green roof with 13 planters for gardening. (About 60 species of birds have already been spotted in the garden.)

The 19 ½ foot wide home can accommodate up to six bedrooms and five bathrooms on three floors.

The top floor offers a view of the Manhattan skyline and the LIC.

It is divided into two separate residences: a three-bedroom owners’ triplex on a three-bedroom apartment on the ground floor. A second floor features a bedroom converted into a library / office with original joists salvaged from longleaf pine shelves, from trees planted around 1780, as listed by Cary Tamura and Kim Rodriguez de Corcoran.

Paino bought the house with Peter Johnson for $ 580,000 in 2009, according to property records.
