Harrah gets another puff piece

There is a ridiculous puff piece about Mike Harrah, the notorious developer who recently got busted in Hawaii for using illegal immigrants on a building project, in something called “Live OC.”

The article is a bit hard to find oline, but you can do so by clicking here, then click on “Amusement,” and then on the Mike Harrah article.

The article also fails to mention that Harrah has virtually destroyed a historic building, in the process of preparing the lot where he is supposedly going to build his One Broadway Tower.

And it fails to mention that he got caught, by one of our bloggers, doing illegal asbestos abatement while razing a building on the OBP lot.

I truly doubt that Harrah will ever find enough tenants for his OBP project. Not in today’s soft market – and not with a recession looming. But his PR staff is working overtime to promote him, and OBP. Perhaps to take away attention from Measure D?
