1100 Wilshire Bends Over: Chase vs 1100 vs Bixel Tower

The homeowners of 1100 Wilshire got what they asked for, but apparently paid an extremely hefty price.

CORRECTION:  The L.A. Loft Blog incorrectly reported that Chase Bank purchased or leased control of 1100 Wilshire guest parking.  The L.A. Loft Blog has since learned that the former guest parking is primarily controlled by the commercial space owner Wilshire Commercial LLC. The free guest parking was lost in connection with ongoing litigation between 1100 Wilshire Property Owners Association and Wilshire Commercial LLC.

Some homeowners have since complained that the problems mentioned in the L.A. Loft Blog (loss of guest parking and reduced maintenance) are caused, not by Chase Bank, but by a rogue homeowners board that has launched expensive lawsuits without majority homeowner approval.  The homeowners board and management believe that they are working in the homeowners best interests to reverse adverse impacts to the homeowners caused by actions of Wilshire Commercial LLC.

1100-wilshire-chase-h-2

What is, for the moment, still among the most respected buildings in the Downtown Los Angeles area has been trying for years to get all of its 3 or so commercial spaces filled up with businesses.  Everything was going great until they gave away the farm to Chase Bank. (Lesson learned: Always be very cautious when dealing with banks because they are naturally the best swindlers out there — for banks, it really is all about the money). Now Chase affects 1100 Wilshire, which you can easily see after they pulled down the 1100 sign, replacing it with the Chase sign.  The sad result so far is that the extra money from Chase does not appear to cover the cost of all of the extra wear and tear on all of the interior areas from the parking and elevator halls to the once-pristine lobby, which is not so pristine any more.  There is so much soil and wear from the foot traffic, that busy maintenance crews now appear to have trouble keeping up.  Worst of all, LA Loft Blog sources say that the HOA actually lost control of its valuable, once plentiful guest parking to the retail owner due to ongoing litigation with the building’s retail space owner Wilshire Commercial LLC.  It’s now a lot harder to have visitors over, so the once-social residents must now kiss their many friends goodbye.

Now the Chase problem is unfortunately only the beginning of 1100 Wilshire’s woes. Homeowners recently called an emergency meeting to try to come up with a strategy to prevent the future blockage of 1100 Wilshire’s pool deck by the upcoming 36-story behemoth Bixel Tower.  1100’s glorious 17th floor sundeck with high-end infinity pool, outdoor kitchens, hot tub spa with views, private party patio, cabanas and fire pit, the entire 17-th floor rooftop sun deck and south-facing units could soon be blacked out by the upcoming Bixel Tower. This will block the natural light and views, thus diminish the property values of 1100 Wilshire condominiums.

Our guess is that the residents of 1100 Wilshire, angry at recent results of dealings with Wilshire Commercial LLC and Chase Bank, will vent their frustrations at Bixel tower, perhaps putting a damper on Bixel’s sky-high aspirations.

FREE HOME-BUYER PROTECTION PROGRAMS – Downtown Loft and Condos For Sale

It’s an exciting new world that combines the comforts of modern luxuries, convenience of walkable restaurants, shopping, entertainment and Metro transportation with the power of historic culture and new creative energies. #homebuyer #protection

1100-wilshire-rooftop-sun-deck-05mk

As Downtown Los Angeles continues its renaissance and transformation from blight to luxury, homeowners are just beginning to realize the fortune of their gains. Thousands of Downtowners have seen equity growth in the hundreds of thousands of dollars in just the last few years. Others quietly wait and hope for home prices to drop again before they will get in the real estate investment game. Nobody on earth can predict the economics, but we can all enjoy fresh organic flavors of Urth Caffe while pondering our next creative endeavors. Today, prospective Downtown home buyers can really relax as we take advantage of free home-buyer protections.

Renters save $600.00 off rent by upgrading to get priority access and unadvertised bargains from the L.A. Loft Tour at http://www.LALoftTour.com.

Many home shoppers are not aware of that they can beat out other buyers to the best deals by getting priority access to hot new listings, including: Downtown foreclosures, unlisted lofts, distressed properties, raw lofts, vacant condos, bank owned homes, company owned, REO, short sales, Mills Act tax savings on historic lofts, low HOA dues, low down payment and buyer protection on new loft conversions and new construction homes.  While everyone can enjoy searching the internet for homes, most notice that the best deals found on the internet are gone before we get a chance to see them.  This is because the very best deals are not on the internet, most of the other good deals are going to VIP buyers before they go on the web.  The best free homebuyer protection programs actually include priority notifications of the best deals often 3-10 days before they are uploaded to the internet.

Home buyer protection also helps buyers get a lower price and better terms by placing the buyer’s interests above the seller’s interests.  The programs allow the buyer to get all of the information, the pros and the cons, on the property so that the buyer will know what they are buying ahead of time, and be more happy after the home purchase.  And to make sure that happens, a free warranty and “Love Your New Home” Guarantee are sometimes offered.

LA Loft Search – Downtown Homes For Sale and For Lease

Finding a loft, condo or apartment in Downtown Los Angeles may seem easy at first, thanks to the internet.

evo-810-07-c
Evo swimming pool, Ritz Carlton, Luma and Elleven Lofts Buildings in South Park neighborhood of Downtown LA
The problem is that most properties seen on the internet are listings several days or weeks old, and the best properties go quickly. In fact, the very best deals are often gone before they ever reach the internet.  That means that the average person who is seeking an above-average loft will lose to the few, lucky loft-seekers who have direct access to the MLS where real estate brokers list the properties first. And even fewer have access to all of the unlisted properties that are not on the internet, and not listed by brokers. This post will help loft lovers to get priority access to proprietary information, allowing one to see the best properties first, before the general public takes them.

To gain access to these listed and unlisted properties, use the free resources below to browse, and then use a Downtown specialist Realtor to start getting access to new listings about 3 days earlier than the general public.

Fab 5 Top Props – Best Lofts and Condos For Sale in Downtown Los Angeles

Prospective Downtown LA residents and investors need quick ways to know which properties for sale are the best investments and more desirable place to live.  Some of these bargains are created by some type of seller distress such as uncooperative tenants, or the seller simply does not want to disturb the tenants.  That causes reduced ability to show, and thus ordinary home shoppers go away, and only savvy and sophisticated buyers take part in these deals that often sell for a lower price.  As some of the largest lofts and condos with best views in Downtown, here are this week’s L.A. Loft Blog Fab Five Top Properties in Downtown residential real estate:
