Athens- growth at the University of Georgia has moved the university to convert a former U.S. Navy building currently being used as a hotel into a new residence hall and the home of the Georgia Health Sciences University-UGA Medical Partnership and the College of Public Health. [AJC]

On the Tube- a 4-part documentary based in part on Retrofitting Suburbia (cited many times as one of our favorite books) is coming to PBS.
