Detroit River Fishing

The Great Detroit Flood of 2014 resulted from the second largest downpour in Detroit history. It closed several expressways and poured into thousands of Metro Detroit basements. The 4.72 inches of rain was the highest daily recorded rainfall since July 31, 1925, when 4.74 inches of rain fell. What went wrong? Could it have been prevented?

    The building is owned by Somerset 2002 LLC.

    In 2002, when Somerset 2002 was filing a certificate of authority to operate in Michigan (was formed in North Palm Beach, FL), it was owned at least in part by Hanna Karcho, presumably a.k.a. Hanna Karcho Polselli.

    In 1998, PACIFIC XVII, Inc., a corporation owned and operated by Remo Polselli, bought the building from Summerset Apartments Limited Partnership for maybe as little as $100k.

    In 2005, the city and county filed a lis pendens against Somerset 2002 LLC and a handful of other entities, including PACIFIC XVII, Inc, presumably as a step in condemning the building.

    Anybody want to help me out with a good Sugar Loaf pun?

    Poliselli sounds like a stand up guy:

    Polselli was sentenced to 27 months in federal prison in June 2003 and made to pay $2.9 million in restitution on three counts of felony tax evasion.

    He pleaded guilty to charges of failing to account for and pay withholding and Social Security taxes collected from employees, as well as failing to pay income taxes or file returns on gross income he earned in 1995 and 1996 as owner of the Plaza Hotel in Southfield, Mich., according to federal court records.
    He was released from prison in December 2004, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons.
    New California Hotel's website confirms that Polselli spent 300 days in prison "related to payroll tax" and refers to it as "the darkest moment in his life."
    Another hotel investment company with which Polselli and his wife, Hanna Karcho, were affiliated -- Club Metro Investments LLC, which bought The Metropolitan Hotel near the Detroit metro airport -- declared bankruptcy in March 2012 and reorganized, according to online court filings.

    NO it wasn't Ronald Mcdonald..the Hamburglar did it ((-;. But, seriously, if there were sprinkler systems in some of those buildings, it would force the local government's hand to make improvements. If it was in the Corr..er.."Midtown" I would suspect a certain Pizza Magnate.

    Although that apartment complex is an almost total loss, the fancier front part of the otherwise bland building... the nice part that faces Jefferson appears to still be intact. It would be nice to save that part of the complex.

    Looks like selective demo on the collapsed part is underway and a for sale sign on East Jefferson facade was just put up...
