Southlake-based Napali Capital acquired the Westwood apartments in Dallas last month, increasing its Texas portfolio to three properties (PRNewsfoto/Napali Capital, LLC).

In an area where more affordable housing is dear, it’s becoming more and more rare to get a press release announcing that someone is entering that market in Dallas. But Napali Capital, a Southlake-based investment firm, has done just that — twice.

Last month, the private investment firm announced the acquisition of the Westwood Apartments, a 187-unit property consisting of one, two, and three-bedroom apartments. It’s adjacent to Briar Gate Park, and is near grocery stores, schools, and shopping.

It’s also not a luxury property. Neither is the Adira, the 164-unit property in Dallas Napali Capital acquired last November. Nor is the Monterrey, a property in Fort Worth the firm acquired in March 2017.

“I would say we’re more of a B class operator, and some C,” said Napali Capital co-founder and managing partner Dr. Thomas Black. “We’re not strictly affordable housing — I would say we’re more middle of the road.” (more…)

Have we got the million-dollar listing for you! This week we zeroed-in on Atlanta and found a Southern Living Georgia home that is gone-with-the-wind-fabulous, honey!

Here’s one of the Atlanta bricks for sale by the owners of the Oak Cliff apartment complex where Lee Harvey Oswald once lived.

There are lots more available on Ebay. This historical apartment building was torn down last week, at 602 to 604 Elsbeth in Oak Cliff. As you can see, it was kind of a mess but, being such a vital part of U.S. history, I am thrilled that the owner, Jayne Ann Bryant, is salvaging and selling the bricks.

Because I have received several emails asking where they can be bought!

“They are going fast,” Jayne Anne told me on the phone yesterday. “And they are really good, solid Atlanta, Texas bricks.” The bricks were made in a town called Atlanta, Texas, north of Shreveport in Cass County prior to World War II. The Elsbeth property was built in 1925.

Could this have been Lee Harvey Oswald’s commode?

On Ebay, the bidding starts at $11 a brick.
