The Texas developers planning to turn Chase Tower into apartments could soon close on their purchase of the property, advancing yet another Columbus office conversion project.

Dan Dunsmoor, with Colliers, is brokering the sale between the current owner, Lingerfelt CommonWealth Partners, and Texas-based Bluelofts.
