Is efflorescence on a brick facade something to worry about?

Hi, this is the end wall of a building with 7 townhouses that was completed in September 2022 (approx 18 months old). I think this is called efflorescence.

There were a lot of water intrusion issues during the build process and there have been a lot of leaks in the houses in this development since we've moved in.

Is this efflorescence something we should be concerned about (e.g., is it indicative of other issues) or is it just an eyesore?
