(I was going to criticize the front side of it, too, but after checking pics I realize that it's not as bad as I like to think it is, even though it also has some strong horizontal lines. I think the modern construction dates from around 1970-1971? You can see it on the left side of this pic.)

That's interesting. I've never noticed that building before. I personally don't mind it. The building in old town that I think is horrible is the new Iron Works Building. I don't have a personal personal photo of it and couldn't find one of Flickr but I think it looks horrible.
