In the last Chicago shot, anyone know why there's such a big vacant lot so close to downtown? Referring to the one across the river from the railyard.

this photo (unfortunately, can't paste here) really shows DC's growth over the past 15 years

https://flic.kr/p/TaZbNW

you can see how the triangular region bounded by union station, the convention center, and the intersection of Florida and NY avenue has completely filled in. this entire area used to be mostly parking lots and detritus.

similarly SW Washington's growth is evident.
