Is Mike Harrah Preparing to Sell the Santora Building to Free Up Money for One Broadway Plaza?
Multiple sources have told the Weekly that many prospective buyers have toured the building in the past couple of days, and these bourbon-glazed eyes saw Harrah himself one morning outside the building with his henchman vendido of a property manager. No listing has popped up yet--then again, it's probably buried under the hundreds of properties currently on sale in the Banana Republic (if Old Man Bren wasn't so damn scared of Mexicans, he could make a KILLING here...).
If Harrah does indeed sell, it'll come as a relief to the few remaining artists in the Santora (who have long complained about their landlord's lackadaisical approach to building maintenance) and to historical preservationists who know that Harrah treats historical buildings the way a three-year-old fucks around with Legos.
We'd call Harrah for a response, but he'd sooner take a phone call from the Voice of OC than us. So, gentle readers: what have YOU heard???
