Nope, he wants to build it a little to the West, I believe. That's where someone wants to build a condo tower....

I've heard the condo project is on-again, off-again, and on-again. Given the housing market and that site's location, I'd be surprised to see development anytime soon.

It doesn't look too bad from that angle. The building has LOTS of potential. No pun intended!

Not a bad building at all. I can see it gleaming with windows and life. It should be a centerpiece to any development over there.

The site has much more potential if that thing wasn't there. It is a non-descript archtectually non-significant building. In a city where they tear down some beautiful structures, it's amazing that this is still standing.

You have this ugly building on the heels of a beautiful downtown. Why does it continue to be neglected?

If I miss the bus, I often park across the street from this building. It's not hurting anyone and causes no problems. There is absolutely no reason to demolish this building. If anything it should be mothballed, if its possible after this much time.

If this building wasn't there, people would probably get vertigo from traveling through so many parking lots in the area. It's also a landmark. Without it, after you leave downtown you'll feel like you're going into outerspace.

Hmmm...

Mikel, Are you smoking some FUNNY WEED? There is no REASON to tear down this building? Excuse me, do you own that building? IF NOT, the building owners can TEAR IT DOWN. A Landmark? Yes, it is a LANDMARK -- how a thriving business can be RUINED by THEIVES! Only in your warped mind does that building have any value! It would cost more to RENOVATE it and upgrade the code to ADA specs. If it was an office building, it would be upgraded to CLASS F.

Mikel, do me a favor -- keep posting. You are COMIC RELIEF!!

While I rarely agree with Mikel, it must be noted that at least he provides the forum with a devil's advocate who provides actual support for his arguments. Your posts never make any sense. Honestly, 3rd graders have a greater concept of writing and general coherance than you have. The fact that you think Mikel provides, "comic relief" is itself comic relief. I especially like the constant, CAPITALIZATION of EVERY other WORD! As if that helps translate your posts into English! :wacko:

It probably costs more to tear it down than the revenue that would be generated from making it a parking lot. No doubt there is asbestos in there, so they let it sit. Besides, there is plenty of other prime real estate sitting undeveloped in Hartford lacking any private investment interest.
