DALLAS INTERURBAN BUILDING SAVED DALLAS (Dallas Morning News) – Downtown Dallas' historic Interurban Building gained new life after being bought out of foreclosure. Interurban’s new owner is California-based Bridge-National Partners LP, which bought the property at 1500 Jackson St. for $11.5 million. The nine-story, 95-year-old building has housed retailers and 118 loft apartments since 2005. LIVE OAK BUYS LOCHWOOD DALLAS (Hendricks & Partners) – McKinney-based investor Live Oak Lochwood LLC has purchased a northeast Dallas apartment community. The 200-unit Lochwood apartments at 11117 Lochwood Blvd. was sold by J.P. Morgan Chase and En Quernus Holding Corp. Lochwood, a garden-style community, was built in 1958 and renovated in 1989. AGGIES DESIGN HOUSE OF THE FUTURE COLLEGE STATION (The Battalion) – Architecture students at Texas A&M University have created a prototype of a “house of the future.” The project involved looking at new ways to use existing technology and new architecture practices to construct new buildings. "[The house] is not really using materials you would traditionally see in a suburban house. The house is actually constructed out of a carbon fiber layup process, so it's basically layers of resin and carbon fiber, similar to what you would see in sailboat construction, cars and that type of thing," said Mitchell Rocheleau, who worked on the project. Students completed this project during the inaugural Mitchell Lab Visiting Designer Program. They partnered with California-based architectural research organization Emergent. HARVARD REMODELING STUDY GRIM CAMBRIDGE (Joint Center For Housing Studies of Harvard University) – Home improvement is expected to remain volatile into 2012, according to the Leading Indicator of Remodeling Activity (LIRA) by the Remodeling Futures Program at Harvard's Joint Center For Housing Studies. The LIRA model shows spending on home improvements will be down 4 percent through first quarter 2012. “The recent slowdown in the economy has caused home improvement spending to weaken again. Falling consumer confidence levels have undermined interest in discretionary remodeling projects,” said Eric Belsky, the center's managing director.
