The property built in 1969 no doubt needs a facelift and the bones need to be updated….electrical , plumbing , heating , roofing etc……Good to see things like this happening to older out of date and most likely not current code compliant properties …Makes for safe neighborhoods.

Worth noting that a couple of names here are OB old timers. Harry Loftus lived on Niagara not far from Pomas for many years. The buyers rep Gary Urtiaga was a Brighton local until he moved to Long Branch (or Muir?)

Also worth noting that the Loftus family lived in one of their apartment buildings. I think they modified two apartmnets into a large one. He could have been one of those Patrician apartment owners that lived “up the hill.” Instead he chose to live with his tenants, and raise his sons right here in the hood.

Went to Pt Loma High with one of the Loftus sons – he was a year ahead of me I believe.
