[Going, going, gone. This starter condo is closing escrow tomorrow]

NORTH HOLLYWOOD - One of our previously featured "On the Market" starter condos is now Off the Market. A reader writes in: "Well, after all the brouhaha that this caused, I can finally reveal that a friend of mine is closing escrow on it tomorrow! I was afraid that if I said anything before now, another Curbed reader might put the place into multiple offers! For years, I've been urging him to buy, instead of renting, which of course is easier said than done, given L.A. prices. But this place had the right combination of features/proximity/relative affordability, so he took the plunge. It also seems like a good investment, based upon all of the development planned for NoHo (plus it's just blocks away from Tujunga Village, which we heart). :-) He plans to install hardwood floors plus a few other upgrades, right away." Our work here is done. [CurbedWire Inbox]

WESTWOOD - Earlier this year, boutique hotel chain owner, The Kimpton Group, took temporary possession of the liquor license for their Hotel Palomar. Six months later and they now have their very own liquor license. The Palomar was slated to open summer 2007, then fall, now we're assuming early 2008. [CurbedWire Inbox]

SILVER LAKE - The Silver Lake prefab twins--inspired by Dwell magazine--and previously mentioned on Curbed have had a little price cut; now the lots, which come with plans to build, are listed at $295,000 and $275,000. []
