An embarrassment of riches? Naw! / by Diana Lang

The San Francisco Business Times ran this piece recently. That project is zooming right along but add to that this interesting and quite new opportunity.

Do the math, 157 acres on the North end of Mare Island then another 200 acres also on Mare Island - parcels that Lennar Mare Island, LLC has been sitting on. Anyone who knows me has probably heard my deep dissatisfaction with Lennar and their performance - and frankly monopoly played poorly - of our Mare Island. Like other such creatures, they take what they like and leave or frustrate the rest. Clicking here will get you to a KTVU piece that came out a long time ago. Dave Phinney’s Savage & Cooke has yet to open. I need to correct, I believe he does not own any of the buildings he has spent millions of dollars renovated. But come on, damn that is some sexy heritage to work with, right?

But here’s a question, is having control over so much of our island going to be the best thing for Vallejo as a whole? It’s a question that needs to be put out there/brought forward.

Kent Fortner has shown himself to be not only a winning partner of Mare Island Brewing but he gets Most Articulate Vallejo Cheerleader hands down!

Regardless, these are some very exciting times for out V-Town!

And hell yes you should contact me if you want to buy or sell property in Vallejo!
