R. W. Cartwright Takes Title to Fifth Avenue Business Property.
Squirrel Hill Will Have New Thoroughfare—Schenley Farms Improvements.

R. W. Cartwright, who has been one of the most prominent factors in the real estate market for a month past, has taken title to another property in outer Fifth avenue. The L. A. Clark Company handled the deal whereby Mr. Cartwright secures the property at 1514 Fifth avenue from D. E. Nevin in a trade transaction. The property, which is 24½x120 feet, improved with a three-story business building, is put into the deal at a valuation of $45,000.

In part payment Mr. Nevin takes Mr. Cartwright's three remaining properties in Mytrle avenue, Bellevue, these being put into the deal at a valuation of $25,000. Each of these lots is 30½@120 feet, improved with a two-story and attic brick residence. The L. A. Clark Company will have exclusive charge of the renting of all properties involved.

Mr. Cartwright has figured in no less than five deals of the kind whereby he takes over property beyond the hump. In each case he made the deals for investment. The first important trade deal between him and Mr. Nevin was that by which Mr. Cartwright took title to the property at Sixth and Wylie avenues at a valuation of about $100,000.

Squirrel Hill's New Thoroughfare.

Squirrel Hill is being further beautified by a new thoroughfare between Wightman and Murdoch streets, to be known as Raleigh street. The new street will be 50 feet wide and will parallel Darlington road and Beacon street. The necessary ordinance has passed councils and work has started.

Automobiles will have another direct connection between Center avenue and Fifth avenue as the result of the asphalt and concrete work on Parkman avenue. This improvement is being pushed by the Schenley Farms Company. In addition to this work eight sets of concrete steps are being built from Fairfield lane to the houses in Center avenue. Fairfield lane is being beautified with a pretty park scheme.
