A Blairmont By Any Other Name

Our good friends at Blairmont Associates LC are slow in unveiling some of their other names. Here are some names that they own but are not yet using for purchasing properties, with dates of incorporation:


NGV Partners LLC (4/14/2003)
Vashon Developers LC (4/14/2003)
BMA Partners LLC (4/14/2003)
NDC Venturers LC (4/14/2003)
1891 Holdings LLC (2/2/2004)
Benton Company LLC (3/4/2004)
Maiden 25 Partners LLC (3/4/2004)

Notice the references to street and landmark names from the near northside: Benton Street, Maiden Lane, 25th Street and Vashon High School. Also note that three of the companies have aconyms that correspond to the name sof other companies in the "family": BMA for BlairMont Associates; NDC for Noble Development Company and NGV for N & G Ventures.

None of these companies own parcels, and the recent purchase pattern includes newer entities MLK 3000 LLC and Dodier Investors LLC. Perhaps these other companies are being used to direct the venture capital being used to fund purchases.

I know, I know -- this is trivia to some of you. But to those on the near northside, we should keep a watch out for these companies.

Trivia shmivia... this is serious stuff!! When you think about the amount of land that these people are secretly slowly taking taking control of, it's very scary! Keep up the great detectiive work and boradcasting the issue.

Winghaven + north city + secrecy = Inappropriate uburban crap.

Winghaven + north city + input from residents + consultation with the city planner + public dialogue = A wonderful opportunity.
