MnnT' sales hava been made during the past month, both of lots and homes, and Interest in Estudillo Estates is increasing so rapidly that by next summer we expect every lot will be sold. "Thi - are a number of reasons for the popularity of Estudillo. Ardmore, Durant, Manor and the other San Leandro tracts operated by this company. They are directly in tho line of the Eastbay residential trend: they are all restricted, with wide and beautifully rm.de streets; the homes already erected are attractive: schools, churches and transportation are easily accessible, and best of all they are In the vicinity of what will be tho greatest industrial de velopment in the history of tha Eastbay region. Not only the Sel-berling and Chrysler-Dodge plants, which are assured, but many other big firms are contemplating establishing plants in this district. "This Industrial activity enhance the value of the properties, as statistics prove that eight hundred out of every thousand workers in any brat, h of Industry make their residence within a mile ot their work. Residential property, therefore, will soon be at a premium In San Leandro and values must Increase very rapidly from now on.1' Tha building permits for the week ending Wednesday.
