There are more sold signs on houses in Gwinnett than in other close-in counties. The Atlanta Realtors Association reports in March Gwinnett had 980 home sales.

It was followed by Fulton (952), Cobb (802) and DeKalb (634).

Across all 11 metro area counties combined, realtors sold 4,838 houses. That was a 10.2 percent decline from March 2017.

“The expanding economy and job market are generating a healthy local demand,” Atlanta Realtors President Bill Murray said in a statement, “but the challenge…

The statewide environmental organization has four projects to work on this year to bring Arizona together.

Esports pioneer Scott Smith said new venues being developed for esports need to avoid traditional basketball, hockey and concert arenas seating and designs.

“These venues aren’t built to take over a weekend,” said Smith at Arizona State University’s Global Sport Summit in Phoenix.

Smith, a veteran esports executive and analyst, said traditional arenas are built to host three-hour sporting events or concerts — not much longer esports events.

“They’re not built to camp out in eight,…

Ann Siner always dreamed of having her own tennis court.

It's one of the things that sold her on her $1.8 million, two-story home in Paradise Valley. Of course, the mountain views don't hurt, either.

“Every window has beautiful views,” she said. “It’s so quiet and tranquil. It feels like we’re in the middle of the desert, but we’re in the middle of the city.”

Siner — CEO and co-founder of the consignment retail stores My Sister’s Closet, My Sister’s Attic and Well Suited —…

Denver marijuana buyers would help pay for an expansion of the city’s 10-year, $150 million affordable housing fund under a plan that includes borrowing to amp up apartment production.

If approved, the proposal would boost the city’s shorter-term plan — to subsidize the building or preservation of 3,000 income-restricted apartments and other housing units in the next five years — to 6,400.

Mayor Michael Hancock and other city officials have been under pressure from City Council members and affordable housing advocates for more than a year to bolster the city’s commitment to addressing Denver’s housing crisis, and they unveiled their plan Monday. If key components win council approval this summer, the city would double an annual $15 million commitment that began last year, and it would partner with the Denver Housing Authority to issue $105 million in bonds to subsidize affordable housing projects and acquire new land across the city for income-qualified housing.

The king of Park Hill may soon hold court inside the crown jewel of Five Points.

Palisade Partners, owner of the storied but dormant Rossonian Hotel, unveiled its plans Monday to re-open the historic building as a 41-room boutique hotel complimented by a basement jazz club and ground-floor restaurant and lounge. The eatery/bar/venue will be named Chauncey’s for Denver basketball legend and project partner Chauncey Billups.

“We’re really excited. He’s a hometown hero. One of his passions has been to continue to contribute to the neighborhood,” Palisade president Paul Books said of Billups, whose hardwood exploits include a star-studded career at George Washington High School and the University of Colorado and two stints with the Denver Nuggets.

Billups appeared a project unveiling event at the Blair-Caldwell African American Research Library in Five Points Monday night. He told a packed room of mostly neighborhood residents he has no interest in being a figurehead and will be “100 ..

Broomfield officials agreed to waive up to $384,235 in fees so a developer can move forward with plans for 49 affordable apartments near 120th Avenue and Main Street.

Academy Place, a project proposed by Montana-based Summit Housing Group, would be 100 percent affordable for people and families at or below 60 percent of Broomfield’s area median income, which is $89,900 for a family of four.

Fifty percent of the units will be targeted at people making 60 percent of that AMI, which means a rent rage of $945 to $1,309 — rent which Summit senior project manager Sam Long said “doesn’t really exist in Broomfield.” An example of that tenant would be a police officer with a child, or work-force housing.

Twenty-two percent of units will be rented to families at 50 percent AMI or below, which he equated to a teacher with a child.

Twenty-two percent will be for those who make 40 percent AMI, with a rent range of $630 to $873, which could mean a senior on a fixed income.

The unique geography where the Rocky Mountains meet the plains — a view enjoyed by millions of skiers, tourists and travelers every year — is seen by many as the primary gateway into Denver from the west.
