They’re more like grain elevators than the handsome brick warehouses dotting Chicago neighborhoods. They are very much single-use buildings, but at least they use land efficiently and the steel can be recycled at the end of the building’s useful life.

Sterling Bay was issued 3 wrecking permits last week for 1225, 1237, and 1243 W Fulton Market (https://www.google.com/maps/place/12...!4d-87.6579203).

Probably to make way for this:

I like the density here, but can someone explain what the design process was behind this monstrosity? There is orange brick, black brick, grey brick, beige brick, and some type of black cladding? This is the equivalent of a baker making a cake with one layer of chocolate, one of banana, one of red velvet, one of peanut butter, one of oreo, one of key lime, etc.

The lack of coherence in that building is unsettling.

Too many cooks in the kitchen may be the expression your looking for. It would be my guess.
