Shopoff Reality/Enterprises ($33,000 to Liberate Laguna)
As stated in an OC Register article May 22, 2020, "Shopoff Realty Investments creates investor funds to finance commercial and residential real estate ventures across the country. In addition to investing in mixed-use projects, hotels, shopping centers and apartment buildings, the Shopoffs’ specialty is finding property with untapped value, obtaining development rights and new zoning, then reselling it for a substantial profit.”
- Approval of the huge Shopoff Realty Investments condo project in Newport Beach will be delayed because many of the Planning Commision members have to recuse themselves for Conflict of Interest.
- Shopoff Realty Investments spent $800,000 on land zoned for residential, then changed that into a million square foot high-volume warehouse.
- Shopoff gets a black eye on Yelp from resident-neighbors upset at the disregard for development completely incompatible for the existing residential community.
