San Antonio shopping center owned by company tied to Nate Paul heading for foreclosure

A shopping center that was once home to dance hall Midnight Rodeo — and is owned by an affiliate of World Class Holdings, a company founded by Nate Paul — may be headed for foreclosure next month.

Paul is the Austin businessman at the center of the scandal currently engulfing Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton.

The property at 12260 Nacogdoches is set to be auctioned off Nov. 3, Bexar County property records show, although county officials have repeatedly postponed foreclosure sales due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Sonora Bank first pushed to foreclose in December and subsequently filed notices again this spring and summer, most recently last month. The bank’s promissory note is for roughly $4.7 million.

Two other San Antonio properties owned by entities connected to World Class were slated for foreclosure this summer.

Lenders sought to foreclose on warehouses at 639 Lanark on Aug. 4, a sale that was

As prices soar, the city of Boise is taking two more steps to build affordable housing — one on a site close to downtown, the other at an aging Central Bench shopping center.

If built, the two developments, combined with other projects on the drawing board, might provide slight relief to the Boise area’s rapidly worsening affordability problem.

For the first project, the board of the Capital City Development Corp., Boise’s urban renewal agency, voted Monday to solicit requests from developers for affordable apartments on West Idaho Street just west of 17th Street in the West Downtown neighborhood.

For the second, the Boise City Council was set to vote Tuesday on a proposal to buy ground at the Hillcrest Shopping Center for affordable housing. The site once housed a Fred Meyer store, torn down 10 years ago.

First look at Tesla’s new center console in 2021 Model 3 refresh

After the news of Tesla’s 2021 Model 3 refresh earlier this week, we now get a first look at Tesla’s new center console coming with the update.

Earlier this week, we learned that Tesla is releasing a Model 3 refresh with several updated features.

The new vehicle is listed as a ‘2021’ model year, which is a rare actual model year change for Tesla, and it is starting to roll off the line at Tesla’ Fremont factory.

We have seen the vehicle, but we were not able to share any pictures so we just listed the new features that we could visually confirm.

VITA moving data center servers as part of transition to cloud, new business model | Govt-and-politics

VITA got high marks from the state agencies for enabling them and their employees to operate remotely after the governor declared the public health emergency on March 12, according to a new report by the Joint Legislative Audit and Review Commission, which had been sharply critical of the IT agency a year earlier.

JLARC said last week that VITA had completed the transition to the new multi-vendor system after numerous delays and had provided “critical assistance” to state agencies to operate during the pandemic by expanding remote access by employees to agency computer networks, distributing an additional 2,700 laptop computers and boosting the staffing of its service desk.

“All the chips were down and you need your partners to execute, and we executed very well,” Ozovek said in an interview on Friday.

In a survey of state agencies, JLARC said more than 75 were satisfied with VITA’s help during the
