By Katherine Feser Published 6:00 am CDT, Friday, March 22, 2019 Australia-based Caydon will break ground early next year on Laneways, the next phase of its mixed-use development spanning three full blocks in Midtown. The company aims to bring a touch of Melbourne to Midtown with the development, which targets a September opening for its 27-story apartment tower at 2850 Fannin. The next four buildings, including a boutique hotel, high-rise condos and apartments and retail, will go up north of 2850 Fannin as part of the more than 3.5-acre development bounded by Main, Fannin, Tuam and McGowen. “We are designing a mixed-use development inspired by the iconic pedestrian Laneways in Melbourne with coffee shops, boutiques, wellness concepts and wine bars,” Joe Russo, principal of Caydon, wrote in an email. “Melbourne’s lanes are also home to an eclectic mix of high-rise residences and boutique hotels.” The project is designed to create a … [Read more...] about Caydon to bring Melbourne lifestyle to Midtown in Laneways development

Being late to the game is rarely a good look. In almost any business there’s a definite competitive advantage to hitting the market first and making a strong initial impression in the minds of consumers. Do it right, and you’ve won the chance to set the tone for the competition as they rush not just to catch up, but also live up to the expectations established by whatever product has scored the coup. That said, adopting a more tactical approach to entering – or, in Ford’s case, re-entering – the fray can also be laden with opportunity. After sitting on the sidelines of the midsize truck game for nearly a decade, and seeing cross-town rival General Motors wade into the good fight against Toyota’s Tacoma with two well-received alternatives (the Chevrolet Colorado and the GMC Canyon), it might at first have seemed like the Blue Oval had squandered its chance to ride the surging wave of interest in entry-level pickups A more charitable reading of the … [Read more...] about First Drive: Ford’s back-from-the-dead 2019 Ranger midsize pickup is aimed squarely at the lifestyle set
EAST HAMPTON, N.Y. – It was 10 a.m., and B. Smith was shuffling around her house in socks and leggings and a bright red sweatshirt emblazoned with “Wilhelmina,” the prestigious modeling house to which she once belonged. She is still model-slim at 69, actually. Her face, now framed with a halo of tight gray curls, is just as it was 20 years ago, when B. Smith was on TV, on the cover of magazines and books, when she had restaurants, when everyone seemed to call her “the black Martha Stewart,” as if it weren’t enough to just be B. Smith. Six years ago, she was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. The illness is particularly common among African Americans, and it struck B. Smith in her prime; it ravaged her brain, jumbling her memories, turning her sentences into alphabet soup. Not long after, B.’s restaurants shuttered. Her appearances dried up. With Dan Gasby, her husband and business partner of more than two decades, she turned her efforts … [Read more...] about Lifestyle guru B. Smith has Alzheimer’s. Her husband has a girlfriend.

What are your New Year’s resolutions for 2019? Do they include living a healthier life? I think we all think about improving our lifestyle at this time of year and living a healthier life is often a priority. The age we live in is somehow an antagonist of a healthy lifestyle. Rushed rhythms of life, too many hours spent in the office versus too little time spent doing what you love, and the daily hustle and bustle may take your concentration off what’s important - your physical and mental health. Luckily, living a healthier life is easier than you think. You could start with a hobby, such as growing your organic crops in a polytunnel from First Tunnels. This is the first step towards a healthier diet and also a great way to keep mentally occupied. Squeezing in at least half an hour of exercise into your daily schedule can help too. Here are just some of the things you will gain. 1. Weight Control Regular exercise and eating healthy foods is key to … [Read more...] about Why A Healthy Lifestyle Should Be Your New Year’s Resolution For 2019
