Non-stop development.

I've been struggling with all th new construction in our Bucktown neighborhood. I mean, Wicker Park and Bucktown jumped the shark over a decade plus ago, but there seems to be a new movement ripping up all the remaining property in favor of eyesore after eyesore. And it reached critical mass a few weeks ago when I noticed a building that was already modern was being demolished to make room for another building that looked almost exactly like it, only with one additional floor.

Look, progress is one thing, but this is ridiculous. But hey, what can you do? In reality, unless you're made of money and can afford to buy up all this stuff yourself? Nothing. Oh well.
