Mehrdad Moayedi’s Centurion American Development Group purchased land in the Rowlett project on Interstate-30 for two residential projects.

In the works for more than five years, the 262-acre mixed-use development on the lake was originally planned to include everything from high-rise hotels to apartments and single-family homes.

The centerpiece of the $1 billion project was an 8-acore Crystal Lagoon waterpark to be built on the shore of Lake Ray Hubbard.

But after changes in ownership, Bayside has so far not met those ambitious plans. Parts of the project have been rechristened Sapphire Bay by the City of Rowlett.

Centurion American Development has purchased four acres in two tracts across the freeway from where the Crystal Lagoon is being built.

Davis Love III drops by to see ongoing Belmont Golf Course renovation project | Golf

The renovation will also include a putting course just under an acre in size, a driving range and a putting green.

After Belmont was opened in 1916, it was renovated by Donald Ross in 1927.

But the current renovation is restoring portions of the course back to the way it first was. Nine of the 12 holes on the main course will have original greens.

Other holes, on the six-hole short course, draw influences from other Tillinghast courses, like San Francisco Golf Club.

“It’s just, trying to bring the history back,” Love said.

Belmont isn’t short on history, as the only course in Virginia to host a PGA major: the 1949 PGA Championship, won by Sam Snead. Ben Hogan also won the Richmond Invitational there, four years earlier.

But space was one of the reasons First Tee and Love Golf Design opted to split the course into a 12-hole circuit

See the results of a $4.5M renovation project at Plano’s Carpenter Park Athletic Complex

A $4.5 million renovation project installing four new artificial turf playing fields at the Carpenter Park Athletic Complex in Plano is now complete. The fields can host games and practices for sports including football, soccer, lacrosse and rugby, among other activities.

The project was funded through a $15.5 million bond referendum approved by voters in 2017.

Strong interest and wear and tear on the fields led to the renovation project at Carpenter Park, according to a video report produced by the city.

“Over the years, it’s gone from a two-season to basically almost a year-round season…And you just can’t play on a natural turf that much without just wearing it to the nub and worse,” Kevin Murray, assistant parks superintendent, said in the video.

Curb appeal is an important home-improvement project

LAURINBURG — While the coronavirus pandemic has kept folks at home and sparked a number of home improvement projects, many of those have been inside the home.

But Adam Wilhelm, owner of AJW Landscaping of Laurinburg, says it’s the perfect time of year for some outdoor projects.

“The fall is a great time for doing some easy home improvement projects in the yard,” he said. “If the long, hot summer has stressed out your lawn, overseeding in the month of October with annual rye grass will give you a lush green stand of grass without breaking the bank.

“This is also a great time to plant shrubs and trees, with cooler temperatures allowing them to become established without the threat of extreme heat,” he added. “Once we’ve had our first frost it’s the right time to do some much-needed pruning and shaping of your already established shrubs and trees.”

Overall,

Canning Boulevard improvement project heading toward the home stretch – News – The Herald News, Fall River, MA

FALL RIVER – Hang tight, all you drivers heading north on William S. Canning Boulevard en route to SouthCoast Marketplace.

It won’t be long before your final approach to the popular shopping center in the city’s far South End becomes easier and safer.

Preliminary work is now underway to construct a slip ramp, also known in the parlance of road construction as either a slip lane or slip road.

“It will alleviate congestion and improve access to SouthCoast Marketplace,” said Paul Ferland, who oversees Fall River’s sewer and water divisions in his role as the city’s community utilities administrator.

Ferland says the new ramp, or lane, will sit parallel to the shopping center’s main entrance-and-exit road and will run adjacent to the Santander Bank branch.

The new road will be functional before the arrival of Thanksgiving on Nov. 26, he said.

EU plans big building renovation project to save energy

BRUSSELS (AP) — The European Union is announcing a major building renovation project this week seeking to cut down energy costs and polluting emissions while providing a big boost to the construction industry.

EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said Monday that the 27-nation bloc “must speed up” the pace of renovations if it is to meet climate change targets and said most efforts will go to schools, hospitals and social housing.

The bloc is littered with buildings that fail to contain heat in winter and cannot keep people cool in summer, creating massive energy bills that sap local budgets but also pollute cities and the atmosphere.

“Our buildings are responsible for 40% of our energy consumption,” said von der Leyen. And even though many buildings have or are being renovated, “at the current pace, it would take more than a century to bring emissions from our buildings to

Designed to look like a massive block of stone, the “Café au lait” kitchen by Milvia Hannah is the centrepiece of the family living area in a new home in Canterbury.

A large stone island forms the striking centrepiece of this kitchen in a Canterbury home – it’s coffee-coloured veining giving rise to the name of the project.

“Café au lait”, by Wellington kitchen designer Milvia Hannah of German Kitchens, reflects the owners’ designer for an “organic” kitchen featuring natural materials and colours.

The kitchen, which won a regional award in this year’s national NKBA Kitchen & Bathroom Awards, has also been shortlisted for the prestigious SBID International Design Excellence Awards in London – the winners will be announced later this month.

Milvia Hannah of German Kitchens has won numerous design awards.
