To me it seems that the left is a little less sharp than the right side. However, it also seems that this could be due to a positioning of the camera so that the front of the lens isn't parallel to the wall. Maybe try taking the photos closer to the wall so you could be sure that you are square with it.

I'm almost positive that the lens isnt straight on to the building. Whether that is the sole cause of the softness on the left side I can't say
