A Farewell To Arms?
The Colonial Arms building at the corner of Sisson and Farmington has recently been emptied and boarded up. We are unsure of the occupancy rates in the Colonial Arms, but we do know that people were recently living there. From our observations it was a fairly rough crowd and as can be seen by the trash strewn about in the photo the tenants didn't care too much about the premises.
Located at a busy corner near UConn Law School, Braza Grill, the Half Door and Hartford's most awkward bathroom, and access to the highway this is a building that could show some promise. Since the building seemed to have a good deal of tenants very recently it's hard to believe that the owners would simply abandon and board up the place. Maybe a rehab to try and attract some different tenants?
