  1. Why are senior living facilities the only housing that can be built over 4-stories out in the neighborhoods? We need hundreds of the throughout the city. Nice traditional-leaning design and scale.

  2. This is not new construction, the building shown in the rendering has been there, by the look of it, since the 1970’s. I’m assuming that this project includes the wretched parking ramp at Damen and Sunnyside. Too much to hope that that beast would be knocked down for something, almost anything, else.
