The owner--and hold-out--of a home at 200 Lucas Street, mentioned on Curbed earlier this year, gets profiled in this week's Downtown News. Despite construction, including the Northwest Gateway project, all around him, 93-year-old Bob Pramenko refuses to sell his home, even for a $700,000 price tag (that's what one developer offered). Moving is a bitch, he says. Pramenko, who bought the home in 1955 for $19,500, tells the paper: "I'd hate to move, I'm stuck here. I'd have to move all my [stuff] out of the house."
