Lehman To Buy All Of Archstone; INOVA Will Expand Even More

BIG MONEY—Lehman comes back with a bang to buy all of Archstone for $1.58 Billion. This means Equity Residential and its chairman Sam Zell will become very, very wealthy. Yesterday we mentioned that CalSTRS bought $800M worth of property as a partnership with LCOR, but we didn't mention that Lehman Bros. was the group they bought it from. That sale was facilitated by Weil, Gotshal & Manges (one of their PR reps wrote in to tell us that part). [WSJ; previously; CurbedInbox]

FAIR OAKS—The region clearly doesn't have enough health care facilities so INOVA is planning to build another one in Fair Oaks and they just announced they've selected Suffolk Construction Mid- Atlantic to build what they expect to be a LEED Silver building. Read all the deets after the jump. [CurbedInbox]
