Hi Folks, I'm looking for a great piano teacher for my 5 year old here in JC. Any recommendations for someone who's good with small children; keeping them focused and interested, etc? Thanks!

Shuster is building another 12-13 story building behind Oakman on Second Street that will connect to the empty lot on Marin jet to the north of O'Hara's. It's quite dense. I thought he had already tried but failed to entice the condos on the corner - but I guess they're trying again. All three buildings will share 115 parking garage on the ground level.



OK, so my information wasn't too far off. But, I had heard that the parking structure was supposed to hold 160 cars. Regardless, I think the point of trying to acquire the properties along LMM Blvd would be to protect the views of condos in The Oakman and to control what development or businesses go into that strip of land. It is a very narrow strip of land and they couldn't possibly get that many units out of them, especially if they have to build setbacks at 4 and 6 stories. It should also be pointed out that the units starting at the 7th floor should have windows facing directly West, so they would want to protect those views.


I don't think they can put windows on the West fa├žade as you suggest because this borders the property line. If that property line dissolves by buying our building, I imagine Shuster could change the architectural plans.

They seem absolutely absurd and there's a 0% chance you get anything close to that. You can demand an above market premium, maybe something as high as 100% what your property is appraised at. A one time big cash payment, and some time to look for a new place but that's it.

Yes it's a huge pain to move and find somewhere new but that's why you demand as high a cash premium as you can get. It is a very good problem to have.

The only way the lunacy in FABs post might even be considered (instead of getting you laughed out of the room) is if the developer's project truly cannot go up without your property, AND it's just you or your family. The OP stated he has 8 units in his building. Think there's a chance in the world that the developer gives away 8 of their largest new apartments for free? Never mind the other nonsense he posted such as exempting you from all maintenance fees for life.

So the short answer to your question is not in a million years.

Tell the developer they can have your apartment for nothing with 3 conditions

1. You get one of the largest new apartments that includes a car park
2. They pay for rent elsewhere while it's being built
3. A clause that states your apartment is exempt from any complex maintenance fees / levy



You basically said what I was thinking when I read FAB's post, but I was just trying to be polite! 100% premium, however... hmm?

I get the impression this might be a little more than he's willing to give. What I really want to know is how much above market is realistic.

Would all owners have to agree to the sale, or can the one holdout who refuses to sell be forced to sell even if they don't want to ?


That was my question; If the developer owns a voting majority of the condo association, can he basically OUTVOTE the remaining holdout to cooperate? Anyone?

If he owns enough frontage on Marin Blvd, he is zoned for up to 40 floors, but he might have to buy O'hara's too, so your deal might be subject to them getting both properties. It might just be a payday for your group.[/quote]
From what I hear, Ohara's deal fell through.

You'll need to negotiate as a whole group with an attorney if you'd like a simplified payday, good luck getting all to agree to sell.

Yeah, as I said I think it's a long shot. I'm sure there is going to be someone who will try to be the 'hold out' and want a million bucks. We'll see.

My condo assoc was recently approached by a developer to buy our building. He's constructing an apartment building adjacent to ours and if he had our property, he could make a much larger complex. We are 4 stories, eight units. He's building is 12 stories and ? units. I think it's a long shot deal, but has anyone had experience with this type of situation? Stories? Advice? None of us are sure what to expect.

I went to see a 1bedroom condo in Paulus hook in 2009 for $375K (could have gotten it for $340K at the end, it was a short sale). Now it's back on the market for $575K.

The rate of price increases in the last few years is a bit scary, in my opinion.


Why do you think it's scary? Scary for some, payday for others, I guess. Do you think the 1BR in Paulus Hook will sell or is that an unrealistic price?

Don't worry about DTJC. It's doing fine. And, when you left, four other people showed, excited about the way it is trending.

I find it really exciting to see what's happening Downtown. RE values are going up and new commercial space is opening. This place is changing quickly and all for the better IMHO.

Put up a few flyers around the block where you found the guitar. There is a good chance the person who may have lost it, or their neighbors/friends will be returning to that area. if they can ID it, it's theirs. Or someone may even reply that it was put out for trash and thus free for the taking.

I also tried these the other day; had the Salmon and Umeboshi. They were really good and fresher than the usual supermarket ones. I agree with some of the criticism regarding slow prep, but not a big deal for a brand new business. The folks were friendly and the space looked good. The salmon was especially good and spicy (kimchi?) The Umeboshi was a little light on the filling unlike the salmon which was stuffed well. Good luck to them! I'll def be back.
