Booooom! City cleaned these suckers up. New buyer came in and is getting busy. This was one of the worst pjs in town. It's getting reconfigured, improved and revived.Followed by this --
These will remain low income. But managed but basically the 2nd biggest landlord in the US for these types of properties. It's subsidized and got a pilot. If managed properly, which is where PHA comes in, it should fly very well for the next 50 yrs. financials are solid. They paid a premium for this too. So im sure they feel vested.And then this to a commenter --
you're right to a certain extend. The idea is to help people that need help on their housing while maintaining a civil and crime free community. Speaking from a landlords stand point. People are always gonna need aid and the gov will always give it. What we need to do better is eliminate problems by reacting quickly. Not letting these properties rot and become drug dens. Both policing and land lording have to work well together for tear type of projects to work.One correction to not to Mr. Camino's statements: It is the HAP, not the city, which owns and manages the project, and it was HAP's proposal (as part of the Hope IV program) to relocate the existing tenants.
