It should be the job of the government to both minimize the virus as much as possible and prevent serious economic downturn. The federal government is not doing enough now, on both fronts. I'm worried about the housing market, construction projects and the economy not because of the virus and its fallout but because of the inability of the government to do enough.
Calm yourself. I never said we should care less. I was commenting on housing demand.

The creation of Ping Tom Park makes this transformation more dramatic.

That is a GREAT angle to see the massive transformation this decade, thanks! It almost looks like a different city...? Did I really not realize the transformation was so profound? Crazy.

This is one of my nerdiest pastimes, breezing around Google Maps and comparing over the years. Very cool idea to make a GIF of some cool ones!

308/306 W Erie

Looks like 308/306 W Erie is immune. Taken 3/26/20.

Also Atrium Village Phase III in background. Had seen stoppage for a day or so but I think is resuming.

845 W Madison

March 22

Really nailing that old brick look - boarded up windows and all.

One interesting thing is the design is on the Lagrange website but construction drawings say Papageorge Haymes.

People that actually know these things, does this look like anything? Spray paint has been on the ground for about 4 days and now some small equipment is on the lot.

That park, largely, is exactly what my issue with new parks. They tear down all the trees and then in their place they have huge grass patches and plant some trees here and there. Why the hell do we need so much GRASS?

Reminds me a lot of my high school that was built in the 70s. Not a fan.

I heard from someone who knows, that the Bentham is still waiting on permits and that the original GC and concrete contractor abandoned the project.

I was thinking of St Anastasia in Waukegan - big fan of that one.

The (red=power ?) lines are markings for buried utilities, the equipment is the type used to tear up the surface of a parking lot. looks like it was recently patched so .....

They were tearing it up today. Looks like they were removing tanks as there was a tank removal company truck onsite.

I know a lot of you like brick around here, but 845 W Madison has some of the ugliest bricks used on a building since 1985!!

Looks like they tried to imitate a military digital camo design. I'm not a big fan of how it came out.

Brick mixes are a pretty traditional technique to (vaguely) provide some of the same natural variation you might get with stone cladding. It's not a "military digital camo" design.

Here's the Barbizon in NYC... very traditional (and beautiful) building with a mix of brick colors - see the bottom section of the photo.
