• Last week’s $29 million sale featured in “What’s the Big Deal” made headlines in other media outlets as well, largely because of the buyer’s identity. Lachlan Murdoch, executive co-chairman of News Corp, executive chairman of NOVA Entertainment and executive chairman of 21st Century Fox, is the home’s new owner, multiple media outlets reported.
• Cottle Carr Yaw Architects last week announced the promotion of Todd Kennedy to principal.
