Came across this link...
...and I am sure you can see where I am going with it. Though I can see some problems...

DM - "What huh ? - HEY !"
If I lived in a city like that I'd literally "eat myself out of house and home". :D
Neat picture nonetheless.
I'd feel like such a bastard if I was the one to start eating it when everything was finished.
Meh, I work a lot with companies doing Urban Renewal projects (The joys of being a student working short term contracts, you get to work in just about every industry on the planet. Go Comp.Sci!) So I wouldn't feel too bad about eating a chunk out of that.
It is just making way for new construction!
Just like I do in Sim City...flatten a few blocks (in this case eat) then build anew.
I could totally see that happening.
"Hey Check this out guys, I made this week's adventure out of jammy dodgers."
*turns around for a sec to print out the DM notes*
"OM NOM NOM NOM"
"Ok... What happened?"
*mouthful* "It's a mystery"
