Thoughts? I think it is a bit pessimistic but it is definitely a negative trend to lose the rich tapestry of diverse neighborhood retail for a bunch of vacant storefronts, drug stores, and bank branches. Overall I love the new construction and architecture but the homogenization of retail and the abuse of rent-regulated tenants are deeply unsettling and show the brutality of American-style capitalism in the context of one of the world's hottest markets.
