SUMMARY: The redevelopment of Rosewood Courts in East Austin, a historic public housing complex for African Americans, is well underway, with heavy equipment transforming the site into the new Pathways at Rosewood Courts. Initially expected to complete by fall 2024, supply chain and labor issues have delayed the project to mid-2025 for the first building, and the complete site by late 2025. The multi-million dollar project by the Austin Housing Authority will offer 184 new apartment units and 12 affordable townhomes. Despite initial skepticism, the redevelopment aims to honor the community's past while providing modern housing and new opportunities for residents.

The redevelopment of a historic neighborhood in east Austin is taking longer than expected. FOX 7 Austin's Rudy Koski spoke with the Austin Housing Authority about the delay.

SUMMARY: In a rare solo conference, President Biden aimed to address concerns about his fitness to lead. Despite occasional stumbles and misspeaking, even critics acknowledged his stronger performance. This was Biden's first formal news conference since November, delayed by nearly an hour. He answered questions for about 50 minutes, touching on his age, fitness to run, and foreign policy, where he seemed more at ease. Biden also downplayed reports of scaling back his schedule for more rest. Despite his efforts, a growing number of Democratic lawmakers are calling for him to step aside, including 16 Congressional members. Biden reiterated his confidence in Vice President Kamala Harris.

President Joe Biden continued his insistence that he would remain in the presidential race during a solo press conference Thursday evening to conclude the NATO summit in Washington, D.C.
