A Sight for My Sore Eyes

Finally, a new construction that doesn't stand out like a sore thumb. I came across this project in the 2000 block of W. Iowa. Chicago has seen countless new condos built with no sense of scale or aesthetic tradition of a neighborhood. They are usually 4 story monstrosities that dwarf their neighbors. So I was pleasantly surprised when I saw this single family house being built. What we need is more of this, along with better zoning.
