You want to supersize that?

Downey McMansion

Everywhere you turn in Downey, you can find a new house being built. And when you see a large 2-story house under construction, you can count on finding an oversized 2-story entryway to go with it.

Old homes in Downey are gradually being replaced with what are often referred to as McMansions. According to Wikipedia, the term first appeared in the 1990s, and usually refers to an oversized and often pretentious house that is typically too large for its lot. For the last 10 years or so, the McMansions in Downey have often sported huge bronze entryways. Even the 1-story remodels have their scaled-down versions.
