AZ Shores Unit Complex Responds To Tenant Harassment Agreement:

Editor’s Note: This is a response from AZ Shores regarding Tuesday’s announcement from the Santa Monica City Attorney’s Office, Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles (LAFLA), and law firm of Gibson Dunn & Crutcher regarding a tenant harassment settlement at the 49-unit complex located at 1305 2nd Street in Santa Monica.

Wilshire Skyline is a family-run business that manages apartment buildings.

Wilshire Skyline prides itself on providing high quality property management services and has done so to the satisfaction of tenants for approximately 40 years.

Wilshire Skyline began managing AZ Shores, a historic apartment building in Downtown Santa Monica, upon acquisition of the property by related entities on October 30, 2012.

The property required some updating to improve its condition, including repairs from a major fire. Additionally, new laundry facilities were installed, a security system was put in place to protect tenants and various upgrades have been made to individual units at the property.

Despite Wilshire Skyline’s best intentions, four tenants expressed concerns about Wilshire Skyline’s efforts and actions during these first few months.

It was never Wilshire Skyline’s intent to inconvenience these tenants or otherwise give them the impression that they are not welcome to stay in their homes.

To the contrary, Wilshire Skyline was attempting to improve conditions at a building which had not been upgraded in many years.

Wilshire Skyline was also attempting to institute a more professional property management structure.

While Wilshire Skyline denies all of the allegations made by these four tenants, it voluntarily elected to work cooperatively with the City Attorney’s office, LAFLA and Gibson Dunn in order to reach an amicable resolution.

While Wilshire Skyline’s confident it would have prevailed in any legal action commenced by the City, LAFLA and/or Gibson Dunn, settlement was more prudent from a business standpoint than potential protracted and expensive litigation could have been.

Finally and most importantly, Wilshire Skyline has enjoyed working with the City, LAFLA and Gibson Dunn in a cooperative manner to establish a set of procedures to accommodate the needs of the tenants of the building. Wilshire Skyline appreciates the professionalism of the City Attorney’s office, Legal Aid and Gibson Dunn in amicably resolving this matter and looks forward to continuing to work with these parties in the future.
