Resident Mr Meineke Muffler of 1531 West San Carlos Street, San Jose, CA 95126 is being held captive after complaining that his home and former place of employment were bulldozed to make room for the Buena Vista Midtown Senior Apartments. No word yet on if Core Builders will offer him a new home in the lobby when the building opens Summer 2014 for residents 55 and over.
I talked with the job site foreman who said Mr Meineke was being locked up for his own protection. The fear is that he might get stolen and sold for scrap or auctioned on ebay!
The Buena Vista Midtown Senior Center is @ 1535 West San Carlos Street, San Jose, CA 95126. It's a four story building with 95 units (1-2 bedroom, 598-977 Sq feet) with rent in the $556 to $1,137 range. The ground floor is being saved for retail. We could only hope for a new bowling alley for Mr Meineke, an avid bowler, and the other Fiesta residents to enjoy!
