Graffiti and grandiosity at new Ashland Avenue condos

Did you know that the 2600 block of Ashland Avenue is “the best location … a perfect place to call home?” Neither did I, until I was so informed by the over-the-top copy at the Ashland Urban website.

The website achieves a level of pretentious boasting only matched, in my experience, by the cocaine-addled copywriters for a late 1980s project in the 1600 block of Halsted.

The repetitive tag line for this development is “LIKE NO OTHER” – and I’ll grant that I don’t recall seeing another new construction condo with a master bedroom suite directly adjacent to the kitchen. One unusual modest note: the “award winning architect” is unnamed.
