Update: 317 E 24th Street

Unfortunately, nothing has changed with this property — it’s still a blighted eyesore.  The company that owned this home filed for bankruptcy in April of 2013, four years after they purchased it.

This is the original post on 317 E 24th Street.

This is what the home looks like today:

Property Address:  2058-2056 Harford Road, Baltimore, MD 21218

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.

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).

Lead paint causes permanent neurological impairments in children who are exposed to it, leading to failing in school and also a much higher chance of moving into criminal behavior.  (Association of Prenatal and Childhood Blood Lead Concentrations with Criminal Arrests in Early Adulthood: John Paul Wright, Kim N Dietrich, M. Douglas Ris, Richard W Hornung, Stephanie D Wessel, Bruce P Lanphear, Mona Ho, Mary N Rae)

I think this beautifully illustrates that point…don’t you?
