Chicago and Main construction site

If you haven't driven through or ridden by this intersection in a couple of weeks stuff is finally happening.

The bigwigs here tried floating an office building but no takers. Guess the corporate fat cats still prefer downtown commuting. Instead it will be more of the same; luxury apartments.

Jane Jacobs school of thought - mixture of uses resulting the most vibrant community with activity all day long - is unfortunately rarely practiced in Chicagoland.

We want to (or have to) shop at the mall, work way downtown or the burbs and live somewhere else.
