I am excited to see that new apartment buildings in SE don't add parking, and are pissing people off. I have lived in the inner Hawthorne/Division area for thirty years, and have been happy to see it quickly grow and change. People that think parking is a biological necessity are the type that I don't want as neighbors. They are fucking tourists. Adapt to a dynamic city and take a fucking bus once in a while. Part of the beauty of living in the city is not needing a car, and you are squandering it. I have a great place for you: the outer suburbs of row houses. Plenty of parking. Just be sure to move far enough away that you die before your new neighborhood evolves for the better so I don't have to hear you whine again.
