Future archeologists will wonder at the empty foundation in the boomtown of Pacifica.
Started years ago, it remains a testimony to not having enough capital before one breaks ground.

looks like they were seeking 525k in 2008, according to this: http://propertylistingmaps.com/site/listings/21

The price started off at $525k. It made its way down to $399k before being taken off the market on 1/26/09.

Here were the remarks from the MLS listing:

Looks like a builder just ran out of money.

Property tax is ~$600/year for this one. Not much pain there. Owner appears to be using this property for leverage. ~$400k owed to the bank, and another ~$300k to private investors.

Leverage meaning a place to get funds to do other projects? What do you mean?

Yep. It appears to be an ATM machine for the owner.

There is a lot of loan activity for this parcel. I don't see how he can convince private investors to keep lending with a more senior lien involved in which he is underwater on.
