City Letters from the Lorax

A downtown resident sent in a letter and some photos, following up on my Vulcan piece from a few weeks ago.

Then this happened:
Poor 2200 Westlake tenants. They fell for Vulcan’s sales pitch and watched their high end urban dreams lie in a heap - much like the pile of trees sacrificed for Paul Allen’s expensive “Motel 6.”
The disgruntled tenants may recoup their losses but no lawsuit can restore irreplaceable downtown canopy. Mr. O’Leary better hope the city protects bilked investors better than its natural resources.
Because trees just couldn’t afford $600 a square foot.
