  1. Please pardon me for using your space: When you choose location for the project which it was reported. I have been arranged to read on its developed. (Thank you)

  2. Why not buy all the one family or multi family houses to 10 units. Raise the rent and gentrifie the whole neighborhood. Is that the purpose? Or is it just money? Theses houses I would think are perfectly fine I would think? Do they actually need to be bought and torn down?

  3. And convert to 10 unit structures.

  4. tpk – it’s not that simple. someone has to be willing to sell to a developer, also the zoning restricts what can actually be built, 1066 jefferson is unique bc it is a 3600 sq ft lot, most lots on that street are 1800 sq ft, and only allow for about 3900 sq ft of development (or 5 units) so unless you can bundle two of them together it’s not worth the hassle. Now if a developer put 3 together it gets even tricker because then they have to provide parking for the units. Build up instead of out, you might think, but going up past 5 floors means an elevator is required and that can cost a few hundred thousand.

    If you buy too small, there’s no real deal and you might as well buy anything, but if you cannot line up a large lot you get into the territory of trying to buy 2 lots and each seller would want more than the other person. That can be a disaster.

    The cost to build in this neighborhood is about 150/bbsf, plus the house cost, plus the demo, plus all the plans, filings etc.. it adds up.
