Rose Avenue

Dogtown Realty premier development opportunity in Venice

Venice veteran real estate agents Assaf Raz and Jeff F. Konecke are representing the sale of eight lots on the 300 block of Rose Avenue in Venice.

Three are contiguous lots, with a gap of two lots that are not owned by the seller, and then five additional contiguous lots.

Raz and Konecke said they have shared a vision for many years to bring unique investment and ownership opportunities to people passionate about the Venice area.

In January 2014 they launched their independent brokerage, Dogtown Realty, Inc., in the old Zephyr building on Main Street, Santa Monica, where the Dogtown surf and skate history began.

Raz had secured the Dogtown Realty name back in 2001 after seeing the Dogtown and Z-Boys documentary, which influenced him greatly, particularly the strong commitment to local community.

“This move was the first step toward taking our vision and philosophy of ‘localism’ and making it into the standard culture of the company, while providing a new way for our clients to interact and achieve their real estate goals,”  Raz said.

The Venice block of properties is anchored in the vibrant retail district of Rose Avenue, which spans 0.7 miles from Main Street to Lincoln Boulevard. Seven of the properties are currently duplexes, and one is being used as a commercial office.

The seven duplexes were built in 1953, and each sits on approximately 3,028 square foot lots with approximately 7,364 square feet of properties.

The corner property, 371 Rose was built in 2008 and it sits on a double lot (6,057sf). It is used for a commercial tenant and estimated at 4,000 sf. Rose retail district is a much sought-after mixed-use block of residential, office, retail and restaurants, only two blocks from Main Street and three blocks to Ocean Front Walk.

“This development really offers a once in a lifetime opportunity to invest, live and grow in the heart of the exciting and thriving Venice beach community,”  Konecke said.

It is an experiential environment where people can creatively expand their social relations and connect with other members of their community.

Andrew Keegan, FCV Co-Founder, said it was a leader-full community dedicated to practicing the soul values of generosity, freedom and equality.

“We recognize the collective desire to live in a more harmonious experience,” Keegan said. “For some people, it’s hard to connect to these ideals, but I believe it.  We are all one, and we are in this together. With this understanding, our focus is leading a positive spiritual approach in all our gatherings.”

“Full Circle honors all peaceful cultures and teachers for the unique and inspired contributions they have made to the world, at the same time recognizing that an infinite field of possibility remains in which we can responsibly, imaginatively, and freely co-create our future together.

Full Circle’s weekly meditation ceremony, Resonate, is a place for the community to come together, develop friendships, hear from guest speakers and enjoy live music.

Resonate is unique, as it is spiritual in nature, but not affiliated with any particular path or religion. Like many Full Circle events, the event is free and open to the public.

Ben Decker, FCV Spiritual Director says, “In a time of intentionally misleading media, unprecedented violence; we live in a world where there is more confusion than there is understanding. We are here to create an environment where people can be themselves and express their creativity in a community that celebrates individuality.”

Full Circle Venice is located at 305 Rose Ave, Venice, CA. 90291.

Palm Tree Fire on Rose Tonight

Irwin was on the scene when this palm tree on Rose caught fire a little while ago, apparently the result of illegal fireworks. Irwin and another neighbor were able to keep the flames from spreading, with a hose and a couple of fire extinguishers until the fire department arrived and doused it. No reports of damage other than to the tree, but an excellent reminder of what can happen as a result of amateur (and illegal in Los Angeles) pyrotechnics.
