Stuart Lynn says he’s close to his dream of resurrecting the BayTex.
   Almost all of the interior work – sheet rocking, cabinetry, appliances, granite counter tops and plumbing – is done on three first-floor apartments that will serve as models for the Bay-Tex units on all three floors.
   “The first three units are finishing up,” said Lynn, owner of Lynn & Associates.
   And while those three units are close, the rest of the units are well under way, Lynn said in a walk-through of the soon-to-open upscale apartment complex Friday.
   “So far everything is going on schedule,” Lynn said of the historic 1927 Bay City landmark that he bought last year and began constructing the 18 units on the three floors last fall.
   Lynn said he expects the three initial units to be finished by July 24. He’s awaiting AEP to bring power to the complex.
   “By Oct. 1, it will be totally complete.”
   “I’ve gotten quite a few phone calls” about leasing the apartments, he said.
   “I haven’t given them a firm price because I wanted to see what the actual costs were.”
   Now that completion is drawing nigh, Lynn said he will start accepting applications.
   “My initial goal was to lease,” Lynn noted, but added that he may release one or more units to sell one every six months.
