Maximus's "Preliminary Project Assessment": https://www.dropbox.com/s/5rloiphaw3d9sj8/Maximus%201979%20Mission%20Preliminary%20Project%20Assessment.pdf
It seems that both Rosania and Mallen parted ways with Stellar, and are both now involved in managing Parkmerced for the new owner Fortress Investments, and getting Maximus going on 16th & Mission.
According to http://www.bizapedia.com/us/MAXIMUS-BP-1979-MISSION-STREET-LLC.html, MAXIMUS-BP 1979 MISSION STREET LLC is a CA LLC, and a Delaware LLC. The CA LLC is registered under the Parkmerced address.
Robert Rosania is connected to other officers through these corporate roles. One of the top connections is De Real Estate. Robert Rosania's additional active roles include:
Stellar Management is one of New York City’s premier owners and operators of residential and commercial real estate. The company focuses on real estate acquisitions, development and property management. Stellar’s portfolio contains over 12,000 apartments in 100 buildings in New York City, Washington D.C. and Miami. Over the past four decades, Stellar has offered tenants superior, personalized service, creating a lasting reputation for its dedication to its residents as well as its refurbished and renovated buildings. Our large selection of apartments means that we have a home that will fit your housing needs from workforce to luxury, walk-up to high-rise.
Stellar owns more than 20,000 residential units and 2 million square feet of office space across the country.
"In 2005, Stellar Management and Rockpoint Group, an investment firm, purchased Parkmerced for about $675 million. They created Parkmerced Investors Properties LLC as a venture that would maintain ownership of the colossal property. . .
While Stellar continues to manage Parkmerced, the company was unable to keep up with its loan payments on the property last year, so in 2010, a new financial firm stepped in to take control and save it from default. In Sepetember of 2010, a minor change was entered into San Francisco property records -- the address for the property owner, Parkmerced Investors Properties LLC, was changed from one Manhattan skyrise to another. The new address is identical to that of Fortress Investment Group, a private equity firm.
Fortress bought a roughly 75 percent stake in the venture that controls Parkmerced, according to a report in the San Francisco Business Times, in a deal which reportedly valued the entire property "at about $750 million."" - http://www.sfbg.com/politics/2011/03/23/who-really-owns-parkmerced
Parkmerced is a neighborhood in San Francisco, California, designed by architect Leonard Schultze and landscape architect Thomas Dolliver Church in the early 1940s. Parkmerced is the second-largest single-owner neighborhood of apartment blocks west of the Mississippi River after Park La Brea in Los Angeles. It was a planned neighborhood of high-rise apartment towers and low-rise garden apartments in southwestern San Francisco for middle-income tenants. It contains 3,221 residences (after sale of five blocks to SFSU) and over 9,000 residents, and is one of four remaining privately owned large-scale garden apartment complexes in the United States. The complex is located south of San Francisco State University (SFSU), west of 19th Avenue, and east of Lake Merced and the Harding Park Golf Club. The far western boundary of the neighborhood extends to Lake Merced Boulevard, and the neighborhood is popular with students and faculty at San Francisco State University because of its close proximity. The property was purchased in October 2005 for approximately $687,000,000 by a joint venture between Stellar Management and Rockpoint Group from a JP Morgan Chase and Carmel Partners joint venture entity.
The "Clean Up the Plaza" campaign, which is an astroturf campaign to increase policing and surveillance in the Plaza, is partially coordinated by "notorious SF political operative" Jack Davis. Davis is now a 'paid political consultant' for Maximus.
"Davis used to run San Francisco politics. He got Frank Jordon and Willie Brown elected mayor, led the campaigns for new stadiums for the Giants and the 49ers, and worked for developers and landlords on campaigns including the defeat of a measure to extend rent control to vacant units. Perhaps most infamously, he hosted a 50th birthday partyattended by much of San Francisco’s political establishment where the entertainment included a woman dressed as Pocahontas sodomizing a Church of Satan priest with a bottle of Jack Daniel’s. Davis is semi-retired, and he had largely vanished from the San Francisco political scene, spending most of his time in Wales and Arizona. But he’s back in town now, and he has a new mission: cleaning up what he calls “the most dangerous corner in San Francisco.”"
The Clean Up the Plaza campaign began in September 2013. It was "responsible for the “three-month police occupation of the plaza” that began in September and, according to Guzman, led to increased harassment of the homeless and residents who frequent the plaza. . . . Mission District Supervisor David Campos hinted at a connection as well, during an Assembly race debate with Supervisor David Chiu. When Chiu challenged Campos over the thousands of signatures gathered by Clean up the Plaza as a sign of his ineffective leadership in the Mission, Campos replied, “It’s a way to get a luxury condo project.”
