Teardowns, when replaced with McMansions that are completely out of scale and context with neighboring structures, are most certainly a con. Sorry, writing as someone who has a giant 6,000 square foot faux chateau (complete with turrets) going up my neighborhood of 2,000 sq ft 1950s brick ranch houses, there is nothing positive to be gained. Scale and context, scale and context, scale and context. I can't say it enough.
