Property Owner:  First States Investors 3080, LLC, company has been dissolved.

First States Investors 3080 is one of many LLCs doing business across the country — same people, different variation of the name.  Many of the controlling partners are also involved with KBS Capital Advisors, 1909 K St NW, Washington, DC 20006, a firm that has handled billions of dollars in real estate investments.  From their website:

KBS Capital Advisors is a regionally aligned organization that utilizes local market knowledge to find and acquire debt and equity investments that meet the firm’s strict performance criteria. Headquartered in Newport Beach, Calif., KBS operates eight regional office locations. Since inception, KBS Capital Advisors and KBS Realty Advisors have completed approximately $30.0 billion in real estate transactions on behalf of six institutional commingled funds, fourteen separate accounts with public and corporate pension funds, five sovereign wealth funds and five public, non-traded REITs.

City Council District and Contact:  District 12, Carl Stokes

State Senator: Nathaniel McFadden

State Delegates: Talmadge BranchCheryl Glenn

Interesting to note this property’s address does not exist in the state or city tax records — which would lead one to believe this multimillion dollar corporation is not paying taxes on the property. It was purchased by the current owner in 2004.  (Link opens a PDF file).

      No of course not. I saw this piece on a canvas before it was done on the wall, and it was one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen.

    I noticed two days ago, that the wall has been demolished. the building next to it is still standing… I really enjoyed driving by that wall on my way to work.

      Oh what a shame. That was a lovely mural….hopefully they’ll start doing something with that eyesore of a building now?
