Developer Arnold "Buff" Chace Jr. is working to acquire the Providence Journal Building at 75 Fountain Street, and he expects the ownership of the property to be resolved by the end of this month.

Working with "an outside investment company" that he declined to identify, Chace said he has the Journal property under a tentative purchase agreement.
