This does not bode well...

I admittedly like the townhomes assuming they'll be of good quality, but I much prefer the above tower had gotten built.

As others have noted, the developer is Jennifer (nee James) Pritzker, who has been responsible for leading the renovations of various historic buildings around town. No expense was spared in restoring the Monroe Club to its original state, for example.

I'm sure these townhomes will have a very convincing historic look - no split-face block or jumbo brick here. I'm sure Laurence Booth will do this one right.
