Tenants in Pr. George’s building slated for demolition say they are being evicted illegally

Tenants at an apartment building proposed for demolition in District Heights have filed a complaint with the county’s housing development office, claiming that the owners have allowed the property to deteriorate, failed to repair the heating system and threatened to illegally evict residents.

The complaint, filed Dec. 9 by the Maryland Legal Aid office on behalf of a tenant, alleges that the sale of Parkway Heights apartment building also failed to meet the Prince George’s County “Rental Conversion” law, which was passed in July to help remedy the shortage of affordable rental housing in the county.

The law requires an owner selling a multifamily building with 20 or more units to provide a written notice of the sale to each tenant and to the director of the Department of Housing and Commun...

Suspicious Devices Found in Md. Home After Eviction

A bomb squad was sent to a District Heights, Md., home after a real estate agent found what appeared to be two pipe bombs in the basement.

The real estate agent went to the house to inspect it Wednesday afternoon. The residents of the two story red-brick single family home in the 5800 block of Kentucky Avenue had recently been evicted, Prince George’s County Fire and EMS spokesman Mark Brady said.

The real estate agent called authorities. The bomb squad was called at about 3 p.m.

Authorities could not see inside to determine whether or not it was a real bomb or a fake one, so the bomb squad disrupted it to render it safe, News4’s Aaron Gilchrist reported. A substance inside the devices will be taken to a lab to determine if it is explosive, authorities said.

Donaldson Group and Angelo, Gordon Acquire 599-Unit Property

Forestville, Md.—The Donaldson Group and its equity partner, Angelo, Gordon & Company, have acquired Regency Point, a 599-unit community in Forestville, Md., for $20 million. The partnership will invest an additional $16 million to renovate the property, which is located on 24.6 acres just inside the Washington Beltway.

The partnership acquired a defaulted $32 million senior loan on the property from Wells Fargo and foreclosed on the owner, MPI Cambridge, which had been in bankruptcy since mid-2009. The two firms agreed to sell the property in an August 2010 foreclosure auction, but the sale did not end up closing. The partnership has recently finalized its acquisition of the property.
