Stating the Obvious

[ 14th Ave. and E. Yesler Way ]

(Apologies in advance. So sorry. Not news. Nothing original here. You’ve heard it all before.)

Just a friendly reminder: We used to be better at making good buildings. The building on the left is probably 80 or 90 years old. The building on the right went up 2 or 3 years ago.

We can’t blame it all on rising costs of materials and labor. Our culture has changed.
