If I asked you how much the city paid for this, what would be your guess? Maybe a couple hundred thousand? Nope, at a time when they were laying off firefighters and police officers, they somehow managed to find $750,000 for this piece of ugliness. Of course it was defended as the money being allocated before the downturn...but still. Interestingly enough, it doesn't have a name. So there is a survey to name it. Unofficial of course.
A "better" view of the new part. There must have been an ugly building contest somewhere because this looks like a sure winner. I guess the sad part about all of this is that A) it was probably necessary and B) it could have waited for better times.
