No to condo hotels, yes to ugly buildings

or... no to Nicky Hilton.

As for the ugly ugly architecture trend, Chicagoist points out the call to arms of Chicago Journal. Snap a pick of the building you love to hate and send it in.

Some of us actually do care for the look and feel for the city. Even as a Realtor, it pains me to see these cinder block monsters go up. Tisk tisk... how about a little thought. Sigh.
I see more and more of my clients opting for converted units of old greystones, brownstones, and the true brick beauties (with sun rooms jutting from the front!) of Lakeview, Margate Park, Andersonville and the like.
