    Demolition crews started tearing down parts of the old Dallas I.S.D. administration building on Ross Avenue on Saturday.

    The district sold the building to Dallas-based Leon Capital Group for more than $9 million. The school district has now consolidated it's offices into a high-rise building off Central Expressway.

    The Dallas Morning News reports that Leon Capital has filed plans with the city to turn the building into a 380-unit apartment community. The buildings will be five stories tall with a six level parking garage nearby. 

    The plans also include the existing central building of the D.I.S.D. headquarters that face Ross Avenue.

After 30 minutes, a good Samaritan was able to corner him. Fortunately, the dog is micro-chipped and will be returned to its owner.
