LOW-COST VILLAGE HOMES: Eleven houses, available under Section 221 of the National Housing Act, are in advanced stages of construction on Clark Rd. in the western section of Willow Village. Other houses in the 373-lot Washtenaw Concourse Subdivisions are also under construction. The homes, intended chiefly for families displaced by the demolition of wartime housing in Willow Village, are being sold for less than $10,000 on 40-year mortgages. More than 80 families have already made deposits on the low-cost homes being built by the Willow Woods Development Co. as part of the redevelopment of the wartime "Bomber City." The first 50 "221" houses are expected to be completed before Jan. 1.

Lurie Terrace Completed: News photographer Duane Scheel used a 135-mm telephoto lens to "capture" from atop the Ann Arbor Trust Co. building this view of Lurie Terrace, a 142-unit apartment building for persons 62 and older. The $1.7 million, eight-floor pentagonal structure will be dedicated at 4 p.m. Friday. U.S. housing and welfare officials from Washington, D.C., will help dedicate the facility. It is financed under a Housing and Home Finance Agency 50-year loan. So far, 120 units have been leased and 70 of those have been occupied. Other applicants are being screened.
