A) the proof is in the pudding, if West Loop developers are landing office tenants then what's your beef? If they're not landing tenants, then they're not landing financing and not building anything.

B) the West Loop is not Siberia, people can and do manage to transport themselves there by various means (bus, train, bike, walk, and yes, a decent amount of driving)

C) everything in the city is dynamic. If the West Loop builds a critical mass of employers and the transit system doesn't keep up, then things will give elsewhere. Gentrification may pick up in Pilsen, for example, as younger workers decide they'd rather have a one-seat ride to work. Maybe even East Garfield Park, who knows.
