That is the real salt in the wound, we end up with some stick apartments half the height. Truly boggles the mind.

Small consolation, but when you walk near hall house now, most of the block it’s on is surface parking lot.  Once the new structure is built, albeit half the height, no more surface lot will exist on that block.

This is a nice silver lining. The question remains: why can't we have just developed that parking area while keeping the existing structure in place? But any replacement of surface parking is at least a partial win in my book.

Here’s a new math to see hall house in perhaps a positive light.  The hall house was 12 stories and took up, say, a third of the block with the rest of the block as just surface blacktop.  


Hall house coming down, surface blacktop is being dug up, and the hall house 1/3 plus the other 2/3 will soon become a 6-story vertical structure across the whole.

So this is a net increase in vertical coverage for uptown.
