Old Town Hall

More than once, I've heard people speculating about what's going on with the Old Town Hall building on Atlantic. It's been under construction for ages, and there's a modern steel and glass structure taking shape around back. You can see what it will look like in finished form here, here, and here. The Advocate identifies a December 18th 2009 completion date.

Alright, so what's going on inside? According to the Advocate, there are plans for an on-site art museum. The search for the museum's curator is about to begin. Downtown Special Services District president, Sandy Goldstein, told The Advocate that they want the building to serve as a community "showplace for art." In addition to museum space, other creative tenants are slated to fill the space. The Ballet School of Stamford will be one resident. Talks are underway for others. For more information on the project, take a look at the rest of the Old Town Hall website.

I don't understand why they felt the need to add that big glass "sail." It was a perfectly fine classical building that just needed a little TLC.
