strategically speaking, this developer should slow down construction to a snail's pace and wait the market out.

But in a sign of the times, the 26-unit project at 255 W. Seventh St. will offer buyers financing through the government-insured FHA, a program that allows for lower down payments (as little as 3 percent) and less-stringent credit requirements than more traditional home loans.

Isn't this what got us into the current mess?

What's he matter "hey", hit a nerve?

SP is going down the drain, rapidly.

Developers/contractors/RE should wake up and smell the Draino before they lose their shirts.

and your opinion matters why? what expertise do you claim to have whether cities are going "down the drain" as opposed to developers like Galaxy Commercial or the Bisno Development Company?

I think San Pedro is a GREAT place to raise a family...especially below (east of) Gaffey from about 1st Street to 22nd Street...bullets, bongs and graffiti...ah, I love the smell of weed early in the morning and late in the evening when driving thru those WONDERFUL neighborhoods...NOT!!!!!

Can you say "third world" country?

$400K for a loft. Extra ammenities included but not mentioned are the Beacon House residents walking by your building and talking to a friend that only they can see. Not to mention the drug addicts the next block over that hang out in 8th street park. Oh did I forget to mention the front row seats from your window of the fights that spill into the street from extremely inebriated individuals who have had the pleasure of visiting one of several watering holes in the downtown area.

Well, let's just reverse that question...and *your* opinion matters why?

Might you be financially involved with the parties you mentioned? Or in the RE business? Or about to put your SP property on the market?

SP has declined in the last 20 years. Having lived most of my 50+ years within 5 miles of SP I have seen crime go up, housing decay, gangs flourish, and businesses close their doors.

I don't need some tweaked stats provided by money hungry and short-sighted investment groups and/or developers to show me what I have seen in SP every day for most of my life.

SP, Wilmington, Long Beach, Carson...they've all gone down hill.

or in the RE business? no.

None of the above. I live in Long Beach and work in San Pedro. I don't plan on buying property in pedro, nor do i plan on living there.

I just find it amazing that people from Seal Beach or Huntington Beach or wherever you are have the nerve to tag a whole neighborhood. amazing.
hey LOL

You're hilarious at best, stupid at worst.

What makes you think everyone in HB is a surfer?

As I stated before, I LIVED JUST A FEW SHORT MILES FROM SP UP UNTIL A FEW SHORT YEARS AGO. Get it now?

I am over 50 and have seen the steady and sad decline of Pedro for years.

If you like it so much, why not live there if you work there?

LOL, I believe that part of SP can improve if they clean out the human trash on Beacon, dump the sanctuary city nonsense, and get Walter Moore in office(and why does this chick Janice always win?) But the thing is the city council wants to gentrify neighborhoods AND be this savior to tweakers,third-world illegals,criminals etc. Can't have both. Dolphins and sharks can't be in the same place at the same time. I understand the frustation LOL. God Bless!

Well, I was brought up in San Pedro when it was a nicer town...please admit it's gone downhill...I now live on the Huntington/Newport border off of PCH...crime? Negligible...and why? Because the police clemp down on any illegal or illicit activity...usually from "imports" who come into the area...excellent "distinguished" schools, 98% H.S. grad rates, 93% attend colleges, clean, well behaved, and an "active" police force...sometimes a little tough, but, the residence that are living a non crime lifestyle appreciate it. Be careful "Hey LOL", your anger is misplaced. Be angry at the "do nothing" administrations running L.A. City and County and councilpeople like "Soundbite Janice"...collecting a nice $180K a year check to watch the harbor communities erode.

Well stated Mr. Yang, I want to see San Pedro be a lot better. again there is that sanctuary-city, "redemption" policy. Affluent or poor. Can' have it both ways.
