900 Innes near the former Hunters Point Shipyard was donated to Randy Shaw and Tenderloin Housing Clinic in 2008 from developer Joe Cassidy. Shortly after, it was granted landmark status but has since fallen into disrepair, held up because of zoning issues
This is pretty normal for San Francisco and is pretty much why Joe Cassidy donated the property. What isn't normal is fishy accounting about the property
via email from Rita O'Flynn and sent to the controllers office, assessor and the board of supes, etc
Times are pretty tough for San Francisco Real Estate Market. But I doubt anyone in San Francisco has experienced a loss as great as that suffered by the Tenderloin Housing Clinic though. According to the audited financial statements for the Tenderloin Housing Clinic, in 2007 land within the City and County of San Francisco (900 Innes) with an "assessed value" of $20million was donated to the Tenderloin Housing Clinic. According to the SF Tax Assessor's office however, almost immediately upon the donation, the land lost significant value and was somehow assessed at ...$200K. That's right folks...a 100-fold loss in property value!!!
Its unfortunate that the tax records for the donor are not available to the public; it may never be known how much of a tax deduction the donor enjoyed with his bait and switch gift to the Tenderloin Housing Clinic. We do know, however, that for some reason the Tenderloin Housing Clinic has yet to document the receipt of this land, at any value, on their IRS Form 990's even though their independent auditors feel it should be in order for the Tenderloin Housing Clinic to be in compliance with GAAP. One wonders what the reluctance is? One also wonders why this shortchanging of the Tenderloin Housing Clinic of valuable real estate assets is not front page news in BeyondChron?
Ball is in your court in case you think something is fishy with this situation. Please fee free to contact me if you have any questions.
