  • The cinder-stilt building is the the regional or national office for a particular religion, and while it may be the same brand as Arias church, it is run by someone else.

    Look, maybe they know more than we do and being up on stilts prepares them for the next flood!

  • everyblockhp Looking to make hp a better place for everyone !

    You may be right on that one !
    But that pastor Arias should be supporting the elderly gentleman who went looking for help and instead had $70,000 stolen from his account by the pastors chaplain.

    If they knew how Brickerdike was killing HP with the flood of low income housing like this building, they would not be giving them an award! Here is another huge tax exempt project on the boulevard that HP does not need. Do they know of the 48 unit project being built on the boulevard just a few blocks south of this building? When do we have enough of this and the rest of the city can share this burden? I read two more low income projects are being built just blocks away, one along the Bloomingdale Trail on land that could made big tax money for the neighborhood. What award will they receive when they killed all private investment into HP?

  • I award Bickerdike and Hispanic Housing the award for "Biggest Profiteers" in the government housing development business. Both organizations build rental units and the cost per unit of these properties is upwards of $400,000 each!!!! Multiply it by the number of units and we are talking huge profits. They should be ashamed of themselves pocketing money that could truly help those in need.
