The Katy Building -- built in 1914, making it one of the oldest buildings in downtown -- is for sale, notes GlobeSt.com this morning. On the tax rolls for a couple mil, it's going for $15 million, but only because it's being tossed in with two other properties around the DFW also being ditched by the Las Vegas owners who're adiosing the area. The owners, responsible for the multi-million-dollar redo in recent years, are looking to begin making pitches by summer's end. --Robert Wilonsky
