Sixteen months ago we introduced you to “Solaria” (asking $10,700,000 at the time), three months later we shared the scoop (developer ran out of money and notices of default were filed), and yesterday a plugged in tipster dropped us a line:
[166 Buena Vista] caught my eye in today’s Chronicle sold list: $1,980,000 on 7/1/08….Would love to know the inside scoop on this one.
As would we. We’re assuming some additional assumed debt besides the reported sale price, but who knows. No really, who knows?
And two bits of irony related to the now defunct marketing site for the property: 1. the reported sale price is well below the combined value of the six cars that were rendered in its garage (and only slightly more than the Bugatti alone), and 2. the “Solaria is a symbol of success” copy.
