^^^ I say whatever, eventually downtown will be out of vacant land and all these South Loop townhome projects will be crushed as rising demand around them collapses the NIMBY will to resist and we will get much much bigger buildings than we would now. It's a lot easier to buy up and wreck townhome developments than to try to acquire a 15 story fugly condo building and raze it. The main problem is ensuring that the HOA for the townhomes isn't tied into the surrounding condo buildings so they can't wage a legal battle that way against redevelopment and upzoning.
