Teachers union selling Gold Coast apartment tower

A venture led by Mr. Buford has agreed to buy the 29-story building at 55 W. Chestnut St., a fixer-upper in a prime location, according to people familiar with the transaction. An exact price could not be determined, but it's estimated to be worth slightly less than $50 million, or $233,000 a unit.
