    Texas & Pacific condos are almost all sold
    By Sandra Baker / Star-Telegram.com

    Sales of condos in the redeveloped historic Texas & Pacific rail terminal building on Lancaster Avenue are going well, in part the result of the $8,000 first-time home buyer tax credit.

    The T&P Lofts are close to being sold out, and owners are offering “special values” to sell the remaining 14 units, sales manager Mary Margaret Davis said.

    One hundred ninety-two of the 228 units are sold, and 22 are under contract, she said.
