I was just speaking with a friend yesterday about downtown's pockmarked landscape, and how so many properties are being converted into asphalt for the sake of turning a profit. I've been photographing some of downtown's buildings over the years that have since been razed. The following link, to my flickr, is a prime example of what your article is talking about. Check out the first six or so pictures in the link: http://www.flickr.com/photos/38677544@N00/
There's more asphalt heading our way, unfortunately. A prime example might be Little Italy's Star Building.
