    Lets look at the evidence to start an investigation for possible collusion charges by BJB & FLATS Chicago:

    1) Two very large apparent competitors: market-rate property owners BJB Properties and FLATS Chicago, with thousands of currently existing market-rate rental units
    2) Following the SAME business plan:
    A) Buy occupied SRO's,
    B) Evict all the low-income tenants,
    C) Gut-rehab the SRO's,
    D) Rent the rehabbed rooms to higher-income tenants for much higher rents than before.
    3) During the SAME time period: Starting around 2011.
    4) At the SAME Time, both BJB and FLATS started their SRO purchase and gut-rehabs around 2011 with neither BJB nor FLATS publically committing to stop the purchases and gut-rehabs of SRO's
    5) In the SAME geographical area: the Northside of Chicago
    6) To achieve the SAME results:
    A) Permanently eliminate the lowest rental housing stock in the area,
    B) Raise the market-rate level of rents permanently in the rehabbed buildings at the same time in that area,
    C) While also raising the market-rate level of rents in other buildings in other areas of the city: Those forced to move out of the SRO's due to their evictions and the permanent elimination of affordable SRO housing on the northside, must move to areas of the city where, initially after the evictions, their may be some existing affordable housing. The move ins of these people from the north side to the south and west sides of Chicago put upwards pressure, via supply and demand forces, on ALL single room/one bedroom rents in the city, not just rents on the northside, making the city less affordable than before the SRO purchase/gut-rehabs.

    This significantly changes, through BJB & FLATS Chicago's market manipulation, the rental real estate market of Chicago in favor of building owners, particularly large multi-unit/multi-building building owners such as BJB Properties and FLATS Chicago
