|Kevin, it'll all look pretty when they dig up the street and install the ditches.|

|Aw, I like the giant brick parking garage. Some legitimately nice brickwork on that thing. (Way better than when it had big long wood slats covering the front.)|

|I can think of plenty other places that are uglier.|

|Yes, that's a sad part of the CBD. Especially if you head north another block and there's a cavernous parking garage. That whole couple of blocks has a lot of non-active space, including some large empty for lease spaces.|

|How about 21st blocks and street west of Market?
How about Tacoma Ave downtown?

|Just about anything on Fawcett south of 13th.|

|@RR: Yeah, that is a pretty scary and depresing corner right on Pacific Avenue above.
Todd's shot is certainly not appealling but not the worst downtown.
