Geoffrey Palmer, Billionaire Developer
Geoffrey Palmer is the worst developer in Downtown Los Angeles.
And that's not merely an opinion: it's a fact. Go on, Google it. Geoffrey is a billionaire developer and landlord who owns and manages more than 11,000 apartments in Southern California.
Most LA residents (and frequent visitors to downtown LA) will recognize his Italian-themed buildings scattered along the 101 freeway leading into Downtown LA. See the DaVinci, the Orsini, the Lorenzo, etc. (just tacky).
- And like the monstrosities he tries to pass off as luxury buildings, Geoffrey has a horrible reputation within the housing space.
- He specializes in building luxury-housing complexes next to busy freeways, housing nicknamed "black-lung lofts."
- For years, USC researchers and other experts have warned that housing near freeways seriously jeopardizes the health of children, pregnant women, the infirm, and seniors.
- Geoffrey doesn't care — at all.
- He was also sued for allegedly keeping millions of dollars in rental security deposits.
- Geoffrey displays all the hallmarks of your typical greedy billionaire landlord: contributing to the state's ongoing housing and homelessness crises? Check! Greedily prioritizing profits over people? Check! Opposing efforts to protect California renters? Check!
- Just as he did in 2018, Geoffrey will undoubtedly shell out millions of dollars to stop Proposition 21, the statewide ballot measure that would have expanded rent control in California
