101 units accounted for at Sky View

More than 100 units are either rented (43) or sold (58) in Sky View at Carriage City Plaza, as of the end of last month. That would account for 101 of the 222 units in the 16-story complex. (Remember when half were under contract?)

City Administrator and Redevelopment Director Peter Pelissier told Redevelopment Agency commissioners during their meeting Wednesday night that another unit has closed and two more are under contract and may close soon. Pelissier said he was told by Carlos Silva of Carriage City Properties to expect a letter shortly regarding payment to the agency for the latest unit closing. It would be the first unit to close since early this year, with the most recent appearing in property transactions in April.

The agency’s settlement agreement with Carriage City Properties, however, remains unsigned. Pelissier told commissioners he would have more information at next month’s meeting and likely would require an executive session meeting to discuss “sensitive issues” and determine a course of action.

Carriage City began marketing rentals almost a year ago ($1,250 for a one-bedroom at the time, which has since increased to $1,350), in violation of their redevelopment agreement, which prompted discussions with the agency and ultimately a settlement.
