Bye-Bye Butt Ugly Building

Finally! The lovingly-termed “Butt Ugly Building” at the corner of Trumbull and Main Street in Hartford may be seeing its last days. The Courant reported this morning that the owner has filed paperwork to have the building demolished.

You probably have seen this eyesore if you’ve ventured anywhere near Downtown Hartford in the past several years. Here are the front and back profiles…

Personally, I would like to see the building imploded, not demolished. We could hold a Vegas-style implosion party.

But in all seriousness, it’s nice to get rid of some blight. Now, what will they build in its place? Or will it just become another surface parking lot?
