HOLLYWOOD, FL. (WSVN) – A family that left their war-torn homeland will now call South Florida “home sweet home.” A mother and her two daughters fled Ukraine and now have their own home here in South Florida.

Olga Sadretdinov and her two daughters touched the warm water and sand of their new home in Hollywood Beach.

Their home in Mariupol, Ukriane is now destroyed. They spent four weeks hiding in a basement with no food, water or heating.

Russian troops were taking them to a filtration camp when they managed to escape and make it to Poland, then Mexico and finally the United States just days before Mother’s Day.

4Ever Young in Fort Lauderdale treated Olga to a spa day and that’s when Frank Willenborg saw their story on 7News.

“I was devastated,” Willenborg said. “I saw them, I saw the photo of the mother and her two children. They simply had nothing.

On Tuesday, he moved them from their one-bedroom studio in Lauderdale Lakes to his empty apartment in Hollywood Beach.

“I said, I have a house and somebody needs a house, and I just can’t let it go empty,” Willenborg said.

For the first time since fleeing their homeland, Olga and her daughters felt the familiar feeling of being at home.

“It’s a reminder of our home,” said a translator.

They each have a bed, running water and Vavara, 8, starts third grade on Wednesday.

“Great elementary school,” Varvara said through a translator.

South Florida has been very generous with the family before, and the GoFundMe for them has continued to grow.

Now all Olga and her daughter want is to be part of the community and find a job.

“We want to be useful for this country and we want to work,” Oryna said through a translator.

For now, although their Ukrainian home is in ruins and unrecognizable, they are still proud to call it home.

“Our city has the Russian flag, but that doesn’t mean anything. It was Ukraine and it is still Ukraine,” Oryna said through a translator.

Now South Florida has become their new home, and that’s all they could ask for.

A Miami real estate investment group has purchased two extended-stay hotels off Ulmerton Road in Clearwater with the aim of converting them into apartments.

The two properties have 183 units between them. Eagle Property Capital intends to convert these into efficiency, studio, one and two bedroom apartments in the 500 to 850 square foot range and consolidate them as Pelican Lake Apartments.

“This was an exciting and rare opportunity to expand our footprint in the Tampa market by taking two centrally located extended-stay hotels and turning them into much-needed workforce housing,” said Rodrigo Conesa, Director CEO of Eagle Property Capital, in a statement.

Conesa said negotiations for the separate purchases began “at the height of the COVID-19 crisis”. The Residence Inn sold for $10.5 million, according to Pinellas County records. A spokesperson for Eagle Property Capital said the combined purchase price for the two hotels was $20.6 million.

The two hotels are located on 11.2 adjacent acres, featuring 14 three-story buildings, 209 parking spaces, a lake, fitness center, swimming pool, and other amenities. The company said it plans to renovate interiors and landscaping and add carports.

In an age obsessed with the elusive notion of authenticity, restaurants like to say that their menus reflect the spirit of their owners’ kitchens, a comforting, if often misleading, claim. But at the six-month-old Esquina Común in Mexico City, which translates from Spanish to “common corner,” the house is more than a concept. This hidden weekend lunch spot, run by chef Ana González Serrano and her partner, Carlos Pérez-Puelles, is run out of a roughly 550-square-foot second-floor apartment on a leafy street in the city’s Roma neighborhood. . The former living room is now an extension of the modest dining room, which seats up to 14 people and is decorated with family photos and books from the couple’s own residence. In a newly opened lounge just off the main area, Pérez-Puelles serves wine and mezcal from a hyperpersonal selection. González Serrano, who previously oversaw the corn-based offerings at the city’s famous Expendio de Maíz, cooks in a decidedly non-commercial kitchen (his mother, Beatriz, helps with the preparation), serving refined but intimate dishes that, on a weekend for a given end, might include cheese-stuffed plantain croquettes with hoja santa chimichurri (reminiscent of the coastal state of Veracruz where half of González Serrano’s family hails from); a tostada topped with equal parts turmeric buttered lentils from Mexico, India and France; or Peruvian red rice with pork chops and huancaína, a cream sauce she makes with poblanos, alliums and cheese. Reservations can only be made by messaging the restaurant on Instagram: @esquinacomun. Michael Snyder


Few accessories have endured like the Hermès Kelly bag, popularized by actress and Monegasque princess Grace Kelly in the 1950s. In 1975, the French luxury brand launched a watch whose strap was fashioned from the iconic side straps of the bag. Today, for a new iteration of the watch, the leather strap is replaced by a rose gold bracelet set with 221 tiny cushion-cut diamonds. In a slight twist on the original bag, the padlock can be sheathed in its bell – now rendered in black alligator – to be worn as shown on a leather cord like an elegant sautoir. $39,500, hermes.com.

According to the economic news portal Idealisticthe title deed was transferred to the district of Póvoa de Varzim in Porto, Portugal.

The real estate company Zome was one of the participants in the agreement, which also had a group of lawyers and other partners.

Among them were the law firm Antas da Cunha Ecija, partners from the Swiss Crypto Valley and the president of the Portuguese chamber of notaries.

In a Facebook post, Zome pointed out that there was no need for euro conversion.

“This writing [deed] represents a historic step, the transfer of a digital asset to a physical asset – a house – without any conversion into euros,” the message read.

Reports say the deal was made possible by the introduction of new rules in April that allowed landlords and real estate agents to sell properties directly in cryptocurrency instead of converting them into fiat currency.

Where else have properties been sold for bitcoin?

Cryptocurrency real estate sales have been gaining momentum in recent months.

In late April, DAMAC Properties, a Dubai-based luxury property developer, announced that it would soon start accepting bitcoin payments for real estate sales.

According to the Nasdaq, Latin American real estate technology company La Haus sold its first property in January for Bitcoin in Mexico for 5.78 BTC. He then sold another property for Bitcoin in Colombia.

A 36-story skyscraper was completed last week in downtown St. Petersburg.

Developers celebrated construction of the Ascent St. Pete building for reaching its culmination on April 29, according to a statement from Greystar Real Estate Partners, a global management and development firm based in Charleston, South Carolina. At 357 feet tall, the building is expected to be the tallest rental skyscraper in the Tampa Bay area.

Here’s a preview of what it will look like inside.

Ascent St. Pete will have both apartments and hotel rooms through a partnership with AC by Marriott. More than 170 rooms will be reserved at the Marriott hotel. AC by Marriott is a collaboration with hotelier Antonio Catalan. This is the second AC hotel in the area – the first is the AC Hotel Marriott Tampa Airport near Tampa International Airport at 4020 W Boy Scout Blvd.

The hotel lobby will feature a bar, project rendering show. There will also be a restaurant and bar with an outdoor terrace on the eighth floor, according to Greystar. The ground floor along First Avenue N and Second Street N will include 6,800 square feet of retail and dining space.

Tampa Bay has one of the hottest rental markets in the country, according to data from real estate firm CoStar. Downtown St. Petersburg saw rents rise 22.2% last year, according to research by CoStar. Yet downtown Tampa Bay is still cheaper than most other major cities. The average cost of downtown apartments ranges between $2,000 and $2,500 per month, compared to cities like New York, Boston, and Austin, where costs exceed $3,000.

There will be 357 apartments available – from studios to one, two and three bedroom apartments, as well as penthouses with their own amenities. The Ascent offers 360 degree views of Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Almost all units will have glass balconies, Greystar senior development manager David King said in a statement.

Ascent St. Pete will have two outdoor pools, one on the sixth floor and the other on the top floor, as well as coworking spaces.

“Ascent will provide an unparalleled rental housing experience in the Tampa Bay area,” King said in a statement. “Overall, Ascent connects to the vibrant energy of St. Pete and creates an environment where residents can feel like they’re on vacation where they live.”

Investigation finds mistakes in response to Forest Hill flat fire that displaced 100 people https://mexico-virtual.com/investigation-finds-mistakes-in-response-to-forest-hill-flat-fire-that-displaced-100-people/ Tue, 03 May 2022 09:27:54 +0000 https://mexico-virtual.com/investigation-finds-mistakes-in-response-to-forest-hill-flat-fire-that-displaced-100-people/ Just before 10 p.m. on April 19, someone called 911 about a structural fire in an apartment building in the 9600 block of Forest Lane.

Just before 10 p.m. on April 19, someone called 911 about a structural fire in an apartment building in the 9600 block of Forest Lane. It took nearly six minutes for the city’s 911 call center to assign a team to put out the fire. The crew arrived about three minutes later, but two dozen units were destroyed, displacing about 100 residents of Forest Hill apartments. No one was injured or killed.

One of the residents, Jneice Howard, told the WFAA she lost everything. “When I came out, all I saw was smoke everywhere,” Howard said. She also said the apartment above hers appeared to be collapsing onto her unit, destroying most, if not all, of her belongings.

“I have nothing,” Howard said. “Nothing to my name now.”

The long wait sparked an internal investigation into the incident which uncovered several errors in the city’s response. Those errors, along with several recommendations to avoid such a long response time in the future, were detailed in an April 29 memo from Deputy City Manager Jon Fortune.

The problems started almost as soon as the call for help arrived.

The 911 dispatcher took the call regarding a structure fire and then attempted to transfer it to Dallas Fire-Rescue. But DFR was inundated with calls and the dispatcher couldn’t complete the transfer. It was then that they again tried to send someone to the fire, but they entered the wrong code. Then the call was mistakenly placed in the queue usually designated for lower level calls, which contributed to further delays.

“I have nothing. Nothing to my name now.” – Jneice Howard, resident

Tweet that

From there, a feature of the computer-aided dispatch system made matters worse. This sent a notification to dispatchers that the incident was near another active call. This resulted in the dispatcher adding the structure fire to an active medical call at a different location in the same area.

When that medical call to the other location was cleared, the fire call was also cleared. According to the memo, this “removed the incident from the list of active incidents.” The disappearance of the fire call was noticed by a DFR dispatcher who reopened the incident.

Shortly after, a first fire alarm was finally sent to the scene. It wasn’t until 9 minutes after the initial 911 call that a fire crew showed up. It was not until early the next morning that they brought the fire under control. According to the department, 87% of structure fires get an on-scene response from the DFR within five minutes and 20 seconds of the initial 911 call.

The recommendations from city management basically said that more training would be given to dispatchers. The memo also said the DFR would “improve procedures” and “create procedures to include a 100% quality assurance review of all multiple alarm fires.”

When asked if the department believes this was an isolated incident, DFR spokesman Jason Evans said: ‘The department will not be responding to any further questions about this.

In the memo, Fortune said, “While there have been errors and delays in processing this appeal, I am satisfied that this is an isolated event and that the actions of Planned quality assurance will allow the citizens of Dallas to continue to trust the emergency service provided by the 911 call center and Dallas Fire-Rescue.

Hello Chicago.

The risk of contracting COVID-19 in suburban Cook County, Lake County and DuPage County has risen to “medium” according to the latest national guidelines, officials said Friday. Chicago’s top public health official said Friday she expects the city to move to medium risk soon as well. Cook County Chief Medical Officer Dr. Rachel Rubin said in a statement, “As hospitalizations remain low, we want to further contain the spread now.”

In economic news, local activists said they felt betrayed after Whole Foods announced the Englewood site was set to close. Then-mayor Rahm Emanuel worked with Whole Foods to open the store to great fanfare in 2016, spending more than $10 million in taxes to make it happen. The store closure is a painful example of how difficult it is to transform a neighborhood, even with major investments.

And Lakeview customers said goodbye on Saturday to Dinkel’s Bakery, which has made countless cakes to celebrate and mourn over the decades. “I am moved by all of the customers and all of their memories,” said Norman Dinkel Jr. “All of the family events that our little bakery has attended.

While biking around her Far Northwest Side neighborhood, Monica Dillon’s eyes sometimes linger on a nondescript parking lot east of O’Hare International Airport, wedged between the Kennedy Freeway, office buildings and a Marriott hotel.

Plans to build a $91 million apartment complex with affordable units on the Higgins Road lot, west of Cumberland Avenue, have sparked controversy across Chicago, including City Hall .

For decades, the Illinois Democratic Party has been an antiquated outlier among state Democratic organizations, focusing on parochial fundraising instead of using its staunchly blue statehood in a red field of the Midwest to influence national policy.

But a year after former House Speaker Michael Madigan relinquished his ironclad control as Democratic state speaker, the state party has entered the 21st century, reports Rick Pearson of the Tribune. .

With the severe shortage of teachers across the United States leaving school districts scrambling to staff their classrooms during the lingering COVID-19 pandemic, officials from the nation’s largest teachers’ union said this week. that insufficient wages fueled the growing crisis.

The recent report comes months after a survey by the National Education Association found that 55% of educators are ready to leave the profession sooner than expected. and that teachers’ job satisfaction is at a historically low level during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Chicago Bears general manager Ryan Poles has completed his first draft course — and it’s a lot bigger than originally expected.

After drafting two defensive backs and a wide receiver in the second round on Friday, the Poles staged four trades on Saturday to increase their Day 3 picks from three to eight.

The Bears finished the weekend with 11 newly drafted players, including four offensive linemen, a point carrier, a running back, a safety and a punter.

Tribune food critic Nick Kindelsperger says he’s eaten hundreds of burgers in the past six years, but has never come across anything quite like pamburguesa at Con Todo Cantina y Cocina in Logan Square .

From a few feet away you would have no idea it was a burger. Instead, the dish resembles a pambazo, a traditional Mexican sandwich coated in a dark red chili salsa and grilled in a skillet with oil, searing the salsa to the crust.
