Old State Building Coming Down

This past Thursday Curbed asked readers to nominate the ugliest building in LA. I've asked previously for votes on Downtown's oddest building, and I've many times made my case that the old State Building was Downtown's ugliest.

I'd submit the Old State Building to Curbed, but seeing as it's currently coming down I suspect it may be ineligible. A few weeks ago I mentioned that fencing had gone up and now you can see the building being disassembled from the top.

This is one building I'll be very glad to see go, even if it sits as a lot for a while.
