Downtown's New Buildings
The good, the ugly & the hideous
"Why are so many of the buildings going up around town so ugly?" asks Joan Lowenstein.

Her "ugly" buildings include the Corner House Apartments on State and the Ashley Terrace condos on Huron (shown)-she calls the latter a "ziggurat wannabe."
