No Go for YMCA HQ

According to the, the YMCA is potentially scraping plans to build their US headquarters in the South Loop. To be honest, we didn't even know that this was on the table, but regardless it's unfortunate.

When we walk down State street, between Congress and Roosevelt, it still amazes us at how many random (and ugly) concrete parking slabs exist undeveloped. This recently has been changing with new condo buildings and retail going up, but hopefully someone will develop this slab of land. It truly is an eye sore for a prominent area (and street) for the city.

Our guess is that over the next 10-15 years, these parking lots won't exist. Or at least that's what we're hoping for!
