The Housing Authority of Salem has reach a conditional sales agreement with the state to buy Yaquina Hall and convert it into up to 50 apartments.

“We are pretty excited about it,” said Andy Wilch, executive director of the Housing Authority of Salem.

1. Good for them!

Too many old loft buildings, warehouses, factories, and other non residential abandoned buildings in Boston got turned into yuppie hutches with exposed brick walls and oil soaked subflooring.

It's good to see housing being built for people who need to be housed.
