      If you have cash burning a hole in your pocket. Skip Playa Vista and get yourself a duplex in Inglewood.

      You're welcome. Feel free to send me 1% of your equity in 5 years.

      Yup. New rams stadium and outdoor area. Plus clippers might make a move to build a new arena. It'll be gentrified. It's not a buy and flip, but if I had 200k I'd def get a duplex and rent it out.

      I saw one Android SWE position for Google San Diego that was posted for a while...

      This is an old article:

      "Under traditional office layouts, a 60,000-square-foot office could house 250 to 300 workers — though tech companies often prefer less dense working conditions in hopes of retaining employees.

      It’s unclear what work Google will focus on in San Diego. The company has many far-flung businesses and research projects, ranging from Internet search to YouTube to Android Auto.

      The only local job listing on the company’s website is for a San Diego/Los Angeles based public affairs manager for Google Fiber, a high-speed Internet initiative. San Diego is one of several cities being considered for Google Fiber deployment.

      In an email, the company declined to provide further details. The building owner — local real estate developer Cruzan — and brokers from CB Richard Ellis who worked on the deal couldn’t talk because of non-disclosure agreements.

      "They could be here for a number of reasons," said Rory Moore, head of startup incubator EvoNexus and co-founder of Peregrine Semiconductor. "One is access to talent. They are saturated up there (in Mountain View) and the cost of living up there is insane."

      Moore added that Google also may want to be closer to the telecommunications and genomics/data science expertise that is prominent in San Diego."

    I already live in playa vista and I would love to work at the PV office when it opens if they are hiring new people for it.

    I am guessing they keep the Venice office and PV is a new office with maybe some growing teams moving.
