The IMDC has been working for years to find a suitable project to fill nearly 9.5 acres of vacant land, hoping to bring more life to the district dominated by hospitals and medical facilities, and after a request for proposals, have approved this plan. The $300 million tab will be picked up by the project's developers. Construction is slated to begin in spring of 2015.

Window Repair

Does anyone know of a good window repair company/guy? I recently got into a new place and the locks on my windows are all busted and need to be fixed, but all I've found are companies that want to replace the whole windows for thousands of dollars.
Thanks!

    They also sell replacement parts at Menard on Clyburn very simple I do them my self. Just take one of the locks off and bring it there. If you need the windows argon gas replaced if they are fogged up take it to pegus windows on grand it will take a day or 2 if you bring the early. You may have to cut a piece of plywood and a 2 by 4 to cover your window in the mean time.
    I have a hand man that can take most windows out for 150 to $200 to re seal and flash for leaksif not done properly.
