'The building covers a lot 80x100 feet In size and contains approximately 28.000. square feet of floor space, being the longest building of this type in Oakland. The total cost is estimated at $160,000 and the building is to be ready, for occupancy about October 1. "The need for a building of this type In East Oakland -has been felt for a , long, time and Messrs. Bauhofer are to be congratulated in taking a big step in the development of East Oakland. "That they are making no mistake is very evident; all one has to do is to see what happened in the outlying sections of the city of Los Angeles to realise that, in the course of but a short time. East Oakldnd will have need, not only of this building, but of many more as large and even larger." Big Street Lighting Program for Chicago The city-, of Chicago has embarked on one of the most extensive program of modern electrical residential street lighting Improvement ever undertaken by a municipality. Since last summer 6500 new electric street lighting' units have been Installed as part of the program. These proved so satisfactory that during .March of this year an equal quantity of additional electric street lighting units were ordered. APARTMENTS E OUT CI BUILDER Manager Kendall of the California Builders Co. said In a recent statement: "A careful survey of building operations throughout the United States, ana of the statistics covering same, goes to show that during the year 1924, over 20 per cent of all the money expended In uilding was used for the construction of apartment, houses. This Is a. far larger percentage than for any other class of building, and tends to prove that the people are more and more leaning towards the apartment as a home. . . "The reason for this Is obvious. In these days, when time counts for much, the average man and womaSH has no time to spend in looking after the many details In connection with the owning of a bungalow. While some people may deplore this fact, yet at the same time, we all know that movement means progress and that people of today want to be in a position to move around and see their own country. Offsetting this, however, must be taken into consideration the. fact that many people Instead of owning a home, now own a small apartment house, which they can live In when they are In their own city, and when they wish to- travel they can do so, leaving their apartment house to be looked after by the regular agents. Thus, they own a home and also own a piece of Income property. "The demand for a mall apartment houses has been and Is an important one, because the public today look far ahead.
