2UrbanGirls received a timely letter to the editor, from a long time reader of the blog, who is a licensed realtor in the South Bay. 2UrbanGirls previously reported on a mass eviction that was scheduled to take place at 4949 W. Century Blvd after an elderly woman came to an Inglewood city council meeting looking for assistance.
2UrbanGirls reported the city was part owner of the property and we pondered on whether it would be converted to a hotel.

Here is what our reader shared on the TRUE ownership of the building in question.
This “silly” publication is happy to report the city has rescinded the eviction notices to the residents of the referenced property.
