What I find most interesting about this building is that it was built in 1929

El Cortez has been in the news alot lately. The developer and the real estate agent selling the properties are both being sued for false information. I anticipate seeing more of those units in this blog.

I would never buy in that badly refurbished old building. El Cortez will become an albatross replete with contruction problems that drive condo owners to bankruptcy.
