Update on 7300 N Damen, the facade now resembles what was done to the top of the Magic Video strip mall at Morse and Wayne and the top of the one story building that houses Morse Gyros and the Golden Mini Market. Apparently this is a common shortcut to shoring up buildings that need tuckpointing. Has a southwestern look with the light desert color. This has happened to a lot of buildings in Chicago, a once interesting old building (which could've been restored) is converted to a clean, bland, dull monolithic structure, which for this corner is a step in the right direction.
