The Locomobile Lofts, located in Chicago’s Historic Motor Row on S. Michigan Avenue, is a building rich with historical narrative. The precursor to modern day automotive dealerships, the building was once used for the production, sale & distribution of Locomobile vehicles. When converted for residential use in 2004 by a Chicago Developer, the richness of the building’s history was cloaked with layers of conventional thought and a pallet of materiality devoid of any connection to the building’s industrial spirit.Save this picture!© Renae LillieIn 2010, STUDIO IDE was commissioned to create a new spatial identity. By reconfiguring the existing boundaries and establishing new thresholds in the sequence of movement, the renovation of the common spaces tries to marry the historical identity with the building’s present use. Moreover, it seeks to reemphasize the urban presence of the building by empowering the entry lobby, creating a bold, yet respectful presence along Michigan Avenue. By implementing new perforated wood cladding around the interior perimeter of the entry vestibule, the space becomes a discreet, welcoming threshold along a larger cohesive sequence of entry. Large, backlit address signage illuminates the space, projecting its colored light onto the street. The rhythm of new floor & wall finishes, together with varying ceiling heights, complements an elaborate arrangement of new lights and wood panels. With the introduction of these new elements, the imbalance in scale between the former industrial function of the building and its current residential use is mediated. This renovation adds a new chapter in the historic timeline of the Locomobile building.Save this picture!© Renae LillieProject gallerySee allShow lessArchitecture Symposium at CUNYArticlesFalkonergården / JAJA ArchitectsArticlesProject locationAddress:Chicago, IL, USALocation to be used only as a reference.

The jump shows that the PR surrounding its new services has been effective.At the end of 16 April 2005, Oxfam Unwrapped was in 128th position in the Hitwise Community – Humanitarian category. One month later, by the week ending 14 May, it was in 32nd position, a remarkable jump of 96 places. Indeed, it did even better for a short time: the site peaked at number 23 in the Humanitarian sector on 12 May. Advertisement The site’s popularity has risen for two main reasons. First, it recently launched its spring/summer catalogue. Secondly, it has launched its wedding registry service, enabling couples to register a list of charitable gifts for their wedding guests on the Oxfam site.

Share of SFR Built-for-Rent Homes Remains Low

Built-for-rent homes Census Bureau NAHB Single-Family Rentals 2015-11-23 Brian Honea About Author: Xhevrije West Tagged with: Built-for-rent homes Census Bureau NAHB Single-Family Rentals The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Share Save Single-family homes that are built and held for rental purposes are just one small piece to a much larger picture of the housing market.Construction in this sector has risen significantly over the last year, but caution must be taken when looking at trends in the single-family rental (SFR) market as starts are still disappointing.Housing starts among single-family homes built-for-rent increased to approximately 9,000 for the third quarter of 2015, up from about 7,000 during the third quarter of 2014, data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s Quarterly Starts and Completions by Purpose and Design and National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) analysis showed.“The single-family built-for-rent market is a small portion of the total market, so care must be taken when identifying trends,” NAHB stated.The single-family homes built-for-rent market share on a one-year moving average is at 3.9 percent of total single-family starts for the third quarter of 2015, the reports found. The 3.9 percent share is higher than the historical average of 2.7 percent, but much lower than the high of 5.8 percent in early 2013.Although this market has seen substantial growth, single-family starts built-for-rent remain on the low side at 28,000 homes started during the last four quarters, the NAHB says.A confluence of factors has created the “perfect storm” for sustained growth in the single-family rental market, according to one expert in the Securities Lab of the Inaugural Five Star Institute Single-Family Rental Summit in Las Vegas in October.Those factors include higher mortgage rates, tightening credit standards, rising home prices, an increased number of rental options, ever-increasing student loan debt, and the number of household formations to building permits combined with declines in income growth, distressed sales, personal savings rate, and the overall desire to earn a home, said Chris Crippen, managing director for US Residential Asset Fund.”This is all leading to the perfect storm for sustained growth,” said Crippen, who has worked as an analyst, asset manager, and executive for Wall Street REITs, the FDIC, and Fannie Mae before founding US Residential Asset Fund in 2010. “At the FDIC in 2007 and 2008, the question was ‘How long will REOs last?’ Then all the REO agents went into the investment space. How long will that last? Who knows. We’re in an artificially suppressed interest rate environment right now. Trends are good. We’re in a perfect storm for sustained growth. I could say for the next five years all looks great and we’ll check back then. If I had to put a number on it now I’d say we’re in the third inning. It’s not too late to get in.”Rental rates and income yields continue to rise in the single-family rental market, affecting how real estate investors target purchase opportunities and how much landlords make on average. RentRange, a provider of rental market intelligence, recently released data which helps investors define and uncover opportunities nationwide.The Cape Coral, Florida metro came in first on the list with the largest change in third quarter rent year-over-year at 23.6 percent and an average yield of 9.1 percent. Sacramento, California (17.6 percent/6.6 percent); North Port, Florida (17.2 percent/9.7 percent); San Francisco, California (17.0 percent/5.6 percent); and Charleston, South Carolina (16.5 percent/9.0 percent) wrapped up the top five.“We continue to see substantial opportunity in real estate investing, but strengthening real estate markets in many regions require investors to be more informed before buying an investment property and rehabilitating it in order to achieve their desired return ,” said Walter Charnoff, CEO of RentRange and Investability.

Professor emeritus records with Cuban National Symphony

first_imgPhoto courtesy of Jeffrey Jacob When President Obama announced his plan to reestablish diplomatic relations with Cuba, allowing for more Americans to travel to the island, he opened the door to give Jeffrey Jacob a unique opportunity: to play with the Cuban National Symphony and record an original piece for piano and orchestra titled “Awakening.” Jacob, a professor emeritus of music at Saint Mary’s, was selected from 300 submissions to travel to Cuba for a week in April.Jacob said his interest in music stems from his parents, both of whom played the piano. He began piano lessons at five years old and went on to complete a bachelor’s degree in piano performance from the University of Cincinnati, a master’s degree from the Julliard School and a doctorate degree from Johns Hopkins University.Jacob said a U.S.-based recording company, PARMA Recordings, negotiated with the Cuban government to allow American composers and musicians to come to Cuba.“[PARMA] issued a call for scores,” he said. “I thought, ‘There’s no chance,’ but I had the score, and I was going to just send it out to orchestras to see if anyone would be interested.”Americans have not been able to travel to Cuba freely since the early 1960s, so the call for scores posed an unique opportunity for American composers, Jacob said.“At a very preliminary stage, I thought, ‘If this is selected, I’ll be piano soloist and composer with the Cuban National Symphony, and that will mean that I’m the first North American pianist in 50 years to perform and record my music with the Cuban National Symphony,’” he said.Jacob said the process for choosing the pieces began with PARMA, which sent selected pieces to Cuba for the musicians to choose from.“Nobody was more surprised,” Jacob said. “Nobody was more surprised than I was when I got the word. It was an email followed immediately by a phone call. My very first thought — and I didn’t say this to anyone — was, ‘This must be some sort of scam.’”But it was not a scam, and on April 16, Jacob flew to Cuba. He said he had played a festival for contemporary music in Cuba 29 years ago, but his experience this time around was widely different.Because Fidel Castro opened hotels targeted toward European tourists and relaxed laws about free enterprise, the Cuban economy has improved the standard of living for Cubans and has helped the country become more prosperous, though the Cuban people still largely struggle with poverty, Jacob said.“Things have changed enormously,” he said.Although Cuba and America did not have diplomatic relations for decades, Jacob said Cuban people are largely interested in having a relationship with Americans.“They want full access to the U.S.,” he said. “They want to be able to travel here; Cuban businesses desperately want U.S. tourist dollars and in general … there are millions of Cuban immigrants and their families in Miami and Florida and elsewhere in the U.S., so they were just delighted at this possibility of the opening of relations. They hope that it will some day lead to full diplomatic relations where there is freedom for travel and freedom for businesses.”Being in Cuba with music at the center of the trip helped unite the two cultures, Jacob said.“For Cuban musicians, music is really important,” he said. “They were delighted with the opportunity to be exposed to what’s going on. With the embargo, they had no idea what’s going on in the U.S. in terms of contemporary classical music. They were very open to everything.”Jacob, who speaks conversational Spanish, said he was able to talk with the musicians during their time together.“They were very curious about the U.S. and the things being written,” he said. “They were really eager for more exchanges like this.”He was impressed with the musicians’ work ethic and passion, he said.“At the first rehearsal, they had practiced the heck out of the piece,” he said. “They were extremely well prepared.”Jacob said the musicians went through the piece three times, after which he thought they were done, but the musicians insisted on running through it multiple times all day.“They were committed to getting every detail exactly right, every note, every nuance, every phrase,” he said. “That was the highlight.”Tags: Cuba, Cuban National Symphony, Jeffrey Jacoblast_img read more
