Why Seattle’s U district is fucked, in one sentence.

(Jane Jacobs, The Death And Life Of Great American Cities)


I’ve been feeling this is happening, all the new buildings have 7-11s or Subways in their ground floor commercial spaces. Nothing funky. Just a desert of chains. There’s still decent stuff on the Ave but I’m not sure those buildings have all that long before they’re torn down and replaced by indistinguishable six-story boxes.
