He's building himself quite the city center empire, huh? The awesome thing about it is that he's not some out-of-town speculator that couldn't give a crap about the properties, which is why many of these properties have had such low vacancies, recently, to begin with. It seemed like they swooped in during the middle of last decade when everyone was really bullish on downtown real estate, and didn't see the real estate recession coming.
I was still kind of surprised, though, to find that the Dime had fallen into foreclosure. Anyone remember who owned it after the 2002 renovation? I recall a local company did the renovation, and I think someone locally owned it. It was one of the first really big downtown success stories in renovation.
