The Laurels seem to be really struggling to sale...i hardly ever see cars in the garage at night when i drive by...I guess thats why they knocked 100k off of every unit. The problem with them is that the people who can afford them typically don't want to live beside a university and dorms, and the people who want to live there can't afford it(students).

Progress is visible Tuesday on Tiger Lane looking westward from Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium. The project is moving at a rapid pace, with workers finishing concrete at the east end of the site, preparing landscape and painting stripes on parking lots. Tiger Lane, which will offer about 600 tailgating spots, is part of the $15 million reworking of the fairgrounds area surrounding the stadium.
