Vancouver real estate: leaky East Broadway condo for sale, price reduced, $339,900, cash only

About two weeks ago, the Straight reported the sale of a unit at a leaky Vancouver condo complex.

It was a $285,000 cash-only, no-financing deal.

Now there’s another unit for sale in the same leaky condo development, Gardenia Villa.

It’s also cash-only, and no mortgage is available.

The price for 603-2468 East Broadway has been reduced to $339,900 from its original listing tag.

Gardenia Villa is known as a leaky condo development.

On September 16, 2006, Vancouver Sun reporters Fiona Anderson and Glen Bohn wrote that owners may have to pay up to $40 million to keep the complex from rotting.

“The project, designed by architect James Cheng and developed by Hong Kong-based Maple Resources Investment Co. Ltd., is a colourful eleven building complex with three gated courtyard gardens and a pool on five acres of land,” Anderson and Bohn reported.

Owners first noticed water issues at the 250-unit Gardenia

US contractor is jailed for role in theft ring at base in Afghanistan – Middle East

US contractor is jailed for role in theft ring at base in Afghanistan


KABUL, Afghanistan — An American contractor has been sentenced to over three years in prison for his involvement in a theft ring at a military base in Afghanistan.


In addition to a 41-month imprisonment, Larry J. Green was ordered to pay nearly $180,000 in restitution by a Virginia court on Thursday, the Justice Department said in a statement Thursday.


Green pleaded guilty in July to conspiring to defraud the U.S. government and commit theft worth $300,000 while working in Afghanistan. He also pleaded guilty to an additional charge of theft and aiding and abetting the submission of false statements.


The illegal activity occurred at Kandahar Airfield in southern Afghanistan during a period of several months in 2015, the statement said. During that time, Green negotiated the sale of items — including generators and

City to sell East Village site for $8.5M; developer planning office campus

Kilroy Realty will buy a 20,000 square-foot, partial downtown block from the city of San Diego for $8.5 million. The acquisition will allow the firm to expand an in-the-works office project, ideally appealing to technology and life science companies who want more space for their workers in a post-COVID world.

Tuesday, City Council members voted unanimously to approve the deal for the site known as Popular Market at 951 Park Blvd. in East Village. The transaction, which is now expected to close in early 2021, will require the city to deposit proceeds into a fund reserved for subsidized housing projects.

Popular Market — located on the south side of Broadway between Park Boulevard and 13th Street — is next to the Salvation Army Family Store and is currently home to the 12th and Broadway Restaurant. It’s diagonally opposite the Smart Corner residential building and the City College Trolley Station.

Council hears support for bill that could downsize of East Towson development, concern measure could lead to lawsuit

While many Towson residents voiced support Tuesday for a bill that would effectively cut in half the height of the proposed Red Maple Place housing development, Baltimore County’s attorney testified to the county council that its passage would make the county vulnerable to a lawsuit for violating the Fair Housing Act.

The bill up for discussion, proposed by County Councilman David Marks, restricts the height of multifamily buildings within 500 feet of the downtown Towson district to no more than 30 feet, or roughly two-and-a-half stories tall.

But much of Tuesday’s discussion of this bill focused on Red Maple Place, a proposed 56-unit affordable housing complex nearing the end of its development review process. It would be located on Joppa Road on a sloping piece of land where opponents say development would exacerbate stormwater runoff into a branch of the Herring Run river.

Qatar puts up ‘for sale’ sign with new property visas, Middle East News & Top Stories

DOHA (AFP) – Gas-rich Qatar has flung open its property market to foreigners, with a scheme giving those purchasing homes or stores the right to call the Gulf nation home.

The scheme, announced in September, is the latest in a series of measures designed to diversify Qatar’s economy away from fossil fuel dependency and attract foreign capital ahead of the 2022 World Cup.

Well-heeled individuals are being invited to consider the glistening seaside tower blocks of Doha’s man-made Pearl island or the brand new Lusail city project that flanks a World Cup stadium.

Retail units in malls also qualify buyers for residency.

The reforms could also help soak up an oversupply of units, which has left gleaming towers half-empty and seen prices drop by almost a third since 2016, according to consultancy ValuStrat’s Price Index for residential property.

Previously, investors needed sponsorship from a Qatari business or individual for residency,

Stroh seeks to unload more east Detroit riverfront property

The Stroh River Place office building and several nearby properties on the east Detroit riverfront are up for sale as John Stroh seeks to cash out of a sizable chunk of his family’s real estate holdings in the city.

A 4.32-acre swath of east riverfront land the Strohs own also hit the market this summer, and coupled together, I can’t think of a more substantial Detroit portfolio up for grabs in recent memory.

But what will the market say? That’s TBD.

There is no listing price for any of the properties, but we can extrapolate a bit and get a general idea on some of them.

The listing by the Southfield office of Los Angeles-based CBRE Inc. comes four months after a trust tied to the Stroh family listed the vacant land at 2680 E. Atwater St. and 127 Jos. Campau Ave. over the summer.

In addition to those two

Realterm has properties across the country, including in Westchester County, Chicago, Texas and California. The company also purchased the former Modell’s Bronx warehouse at 1500 Bassett Ave. for $115 million in 2019. In August the warehouse was reported to have been leased by Amazon, according to the New York Business Journal. The warehouse spans 366,000 square feet.

Industrial real estate has been one of the few bright spots for New York’s real estate market, especially as sectors such as office and retail struggle with the impact of the pandemic. Leasing activity for industrial properties surged by more than 70% during the third quarter, and the availability rate and average asking rent held steady at 8% and $22.98 per square foot, a CBRE report found.

Seventeen investment sales in New York’s industrial market were made during the third quarter. The sales span more than 1 million square feet, an increase of
