Butt Ugly Building

If ever a building earned its name, this is the one.

The Butt Ugly Building occupies a critical location adjoining U. S. Route 84 as it cuts through downtown Hartford.  Unfortunately, it is on the wrong side of the tracks, so development has long been stalled.

The building is in deplorable condition.  The developer and the City have been wrestling over long range plans to develop the site and short term demands that the building be demolished to eliminate the eyesore.

Nothing has happened so far despite years of wrangling.  An article in the Hartford Courant this week reports that the Butt Ugly Building will finally meet its end (sic) in about three weeks.

Wow, I have agree it’s a well earned name. It is a bit of a monstrosity.
