I came across this article this morning and thought I would share it since I'd never heard of the Pedestrian Street Ordinance (which seems like a step in the right direction for improving the over-all look of the neighborhood, at least in theory) and there was so much interest in the architecture and construction of the McDonald's on Milwaukee.

    Good article. That thing is an eyesore. I would like someone to address all the butt jeans mannequins on Milwaukee nearby. ;)

    KJ...agreed on the mannequins. Let's also add the hideous "Megamall" to the list of eyesores.

  • Thank you for the article...very interesting.

  • Great read. Thank you for sharing

    Nice article, prime example of how the aldermanic system and zoning works.

    If the comments on the article are accurate it cost Virginia Oviedo $6500 so she could build this awful building instead of one that fit better. Pretty sad that our gov't is for sale that cheaply.
