TOOMSBORO — A developer in south Georgia is looking for someone to buy a small town.
Toomsboro, a small community with about 700 residents, has one convenience store, a florist, a custom cabinet shop and a post office. The Coastal Courier reports that developer David Bumgardner, who owns many of the properties in town, is putting them on the market.
But his plans changed. Now Mr. Bumgardner and Mr. Lucado are putting the town up for sale again. Mr. Lucado thinks it would be a perfect fit for a movie production company seeking a set or a music company looking for a great venue.
With an asterisk, WTC is back on top in NYC
NEW YORK — One World Trade Center is expected to claim the title of New York City’s tallest skyscraper on Monday, as workers erect steel columns that will make its unfinished skeleton a little more than 1,250 feet tall.
That’s just high enough to peak over the roof of the observation deck on the Empire State Building.
The milestone carries an asterisk.
The tower still isn’t as high as the antenna that sits on the Empire State Building.
Experts usually don’t count antennas or flagpoles when measuring building height.
When complete, One World Trade will be the nation’s tallest building at 1,776 feet, but that’s only if you count the 408-foot-tall antenna spire that will sit on its roof.
Otherwise, it will still be No. 2, after the Willis Tower in Chicago.
