Yesterday, the former voice behind PlanetPLG closed the deal on the sale of his Ocean Ave. house. The new owner is a developer who never saw the house's interior. According to the seller, the new owner expressed interest in renovating the house's interior, possibly renting the house and eventually moving his family in.
Others suspect that the new owner, having paid well over $1M for the house, intends to tear it down and build something new in its place. Neighbors fear that because the single family homes on Ocean are not in a historic district nor landmarked that tearing down the Planet house could set a dangerous precedent.
