Florena condominiums

413 NE 70th St.

The big condo cake pan plops out another one, this time on top of a bank.
How fitting.

Although, the bank might feel like it’s a monkey on their back these days.

Conversely, the condo peeps will know every time they come home if their bank has gone out of business or not.

One thing though, they do have a nice helipad for helicopters that weigh under 10 lbs.

Evanston Square condominiums

600 North 85th St.


Condos inspired by FEMA. The upshot is they won’t last.

In the meantime, pray that these trees grow as fast as possible.

Um, what’s with the flying nun suite in the corner?


This condo is unholy.”

Sapphire condominiums

424 North 85th Street


Clearly, Bozo the design clown got this contract.

We’ve read this was a conversion rather than new construction.

It appears to be a self-storage building converted to a cheerfully striped mega-shed.

Just so you know, we don’t just toss the word “mega” around.


This wee house surrounded by no parking signs is the immediate neighbor.


Howdy, neighbor!!!

Marlborough condominiums

1224 Boren Ave.



This is a beautiful building on First Hill and definitely deserving preservation.

We at CSC weep to see it unfinished and in foreclosure, empty and no good to anyone when so many people who lived there must have been happy before being evicted for a condo conversion.

In the spirit of gambling we suggest a house sitting lottery. Maybe a bake off, pie eating contest or bingo tournament to allow people to live in and care for this lovely building. Who needs another empty condo. We are sure that buildings miss their tenants.

Maybe the nice gentleman Kevin will be so kind as to arrange such a competition

Cheers and best of luck! (We already know what we’re going to bake.)
