I wrote a few months ago about the fall of real estate developer Laurence Gluck and the unhappy residents of the AQUA apartment complex at 4750 Lincoln Blvd, Marina Del Rey, CA 90292.
Aqua was formerly Marina Terrace & Archstone & Fiji Villas & Chateau Marina.
Aqua is managed and owned by BRE Properties. BRE Properties is listed on the New York Stock Exchange. Yahoo summary.
An unhappy tenant emails me: "There have been 4-5 break-ins to units and cars just over the last 2 weeks and BRE will not increase Security. One tenant had his remote stolen during the theft and BRE wanted to charge him $50 to replace it. When he got upset he was then brought into the office and lectured by our very unpleasant
Assistant Manager on how to treat people. Two other tenants…just last week…had their personal belongings stolen off their first floor
balconies. And a crowbar was used to break in to a unit on Monday.
I have seen a student crying because of how she was treated and an elderly man being completely ignored and blown off. The tenants have taken to video taping these incidents and will be putting them up on YouTube and I know that the press have received the petition with over 125 signatures.
