UPDATE: Alleged arsonist caught. 56 year old Dawud Abdulwali birth name Timothy Joseph Roston. Born April 23, 1959. 6'5" 215 lbs black male. He has a criminal history here in LA from 1990 to the present, see below. Based on what I see he is a confused, misdirected, drifter with no real job who identifies as an animal, environment, poor people activist who converted to Islam or at least changed his name to an Islamic sounding name. He desires money,women, nice cars and sometimes seems to force sex based on his rap sheet. He was married to Japanese woman who divorced after what appears to be a kidnapping, forced oral copulation charge which was dropped, see below. Here is LA Times article.

http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-arrest-da-vinci-arson-20150527-story.html

His birth name most likely Timothy Joseph Roston. He has criminal rap sheet in both names from 1990 to today. Below are two links to two profiles which might be but I have no idea if they are him. Age, height, name, location....seem to match. He is an animal, environment, poverty activist. He grew up in Inglewood. He worked with Japanese artists here in LA, married a japanese person then got divorced. He worked with a DJ friend of his here in LA who then went to Japan. They seem to hang out in Japan together. The other guy had an American name then changed it to something similar to Dawud's name. I think "Abdul" is generic. I think they are Americans who got involved in religion based on their facebook pages. One friend whom Dawud seems to copy and idolize is Muhammad Abdul Salaam real name Curtis Harmon. "May 20, 2014 Curtis Harmon —> Muhammad Abdul Salaam May 20, 2015.  One year ago today I entered Islam. Allaahu Akbar!!!" They are both into skid row rights, black rights, music, dj, travel, Japan. I think Dawud's thinking may have gotten a little radical. I bet he had an American name. Can't find the name change yet. He supposedly worked for DTOURZ which is tourism. Went to Penn state which I doubt. He has a few profiles with odd info. His own description of himself in his Google+ page 

I'M JUST A SIMPLE MAN WHO ENJOYS FOOD, FUN, FISH, FASHION, FRIENDS, FOX, FISHER, FAMAR, FANTASYS    FETISH, FOREIGN FILMS, FUBU, PHAT PHARM, & FRISKY FINE FREAKS...

Some civil cases I found. He won a small claims for about $3,500 against a rent a car, was divorced from Japanese person, was evicted. All other media reporting this is the guy. I see him in Japan, Australia. He's supposedly in entertainment.

held to answer to Fish & Game violation 2118 b illegal possession or release of wildlife. I see pics of him with wildlife. I doubt he was trying to harm it. 

Guilty of theft, receipt of stolen property, perjury, driving a stolen car...and much more. The media said he just did a few petty crimes. I don't think so. I have no rap sheet at all, not even a jay walking ticket. 

As Timothy Roston he has a few evictions, small claims... He was evicted from 
1155 NORTH LA

CIENEGA BOULEVARD,UNIT1206, LOS ANGELES, CA 90069

He was sued in small claims by VIERTEL'S AUTOMOTIVE SERVICE INC VS. ROSTON, TIMOTHY J. He seems to have lost every case except one which he won by default as a car rental company went out of business. I think he sued for lost wages but can't tell. 

________________________________

UPDATE: Investigators now have video evidence of someone parking their car on the 110 fwy, walking to the wood framed apartment building with cans of gas and lighting the structure on fire. No more information was released. I take it they still don't know who set the fire. 

http://laist.com/2015/03/31/dtla_fire_suspect_on_video.php

Who is Geoffrey H Palmer of G.H. Palmer and Associates. Geoffrey Harrison Palmer was born May 11, 1950. His siblings are William Todd Palmer August 18, 1947, Michael Ellis Palmer December 11, 1951 to July 1, 1973, Robert Preston Palmer October 12, 1954, Fia Palmer-Richmond December 31, 1956, half sibling Daniel Saxon Palmer Jr. March 16, 1961 born to second wife Shirley Clark 1932.

I thought I'd take another look at Geoffrey Palmer's family tree. Turns out the family name is not "Palmer." It's "Wiesinger." Daniel Wieseinger decided to take that name when he got married. There are marriage certificates in both names. I think Geoffrey's father Daniel named him "Geoffrey" because he sounded very anglo saxon white protestant. It is not a Jewish name. Both his mother, father and all grandparents were Jewish. They came from Hungary and Russia. His mother's family were dress makers then later got into construction, building. I think that is how Daniel got into building. I think he changed the name because a Jewish name back then probably wasn't good for builders. Below is the updated family tree. I think I now understand why Geoffrey wants the glitsy lifestyle, to get away from his poor Jewish roots. 



Geoffrey Palmer's father was Daniel Saxon Palmer born July 5, 1920 in Hungary, died December 22, 2006. He was a well known Los Angeles architect who partnered with William Krisel. His mother was Doris Beverly Weintraub born 1921 in New York. Geoff's wife is Anne Emerich-Palm June 25, 1965. They have a son named Grant Henri Palmer born 2002.

Geoff went to undergrad in Boulder, Colorado. He attended law school at Pepperdine and was accepted to the bar but is currently inactive.

Geoffrey Palmer has a "criminal record" for building or demolishing without a permit. He was charged with this crime but the case states "dismissed or not prosecuted." I think this is the 1887 Victorian home which one of his bulldozers "accidentally" backed into and destroyed. Many articles talk about this case.

When I say "criminal record," I mean that if you go to lacourt.org criminal defendants link here https://www.lacourt.org/paonlineservices/criminalindex/publicmain.aspx? you can search for "Index Of Defendants in Criminal Cases." It also says "This site allows you to access an index of defendants in criminal cases in the Los Angeles Superior Court." The site pulls up misdemeanor and felony offenses. I went to the "index of criminal defendants" and put in Geoffrey Palmer's name. These records came up from the index of "criminal" defendants. This is a copy of what pulled up. Above links you to the document so you can go there, search yourself, read the same items and come to your own conclusion. This is a screen shot of the result.

Geoffrey Palmer criminal record for not have LA City muni permit to build or demolish.
These are the two charges. I searched los angeles code and the violation numbers.

"91.106.1.1.  Building Permits.  No person shall erect, construct, alter, repair, demolish, remove or move any building or structure, nor shall any person commence any liquid washing, compressed air cleaning or steam cleaning of exterior surfaces of any building unless said person has obtained a permit therefor from the department. A separate permit shall be obtained for each separate building or structure except that a group of temporary structures erected on one site for a limited period of time may be included on one permit.

Where the installation, alteration or repair of ventilation equipment or ductwork is not included within the scope of a valid building permit, a separate building permit shall be obtained for the work.

Sandblasting, liquid washing, compressed air cleaning, steam cleaning of exterior surfaces of buildings adjacent to and within 20 feet of pedestrian walkways in dedicated streets in the limits of Fire District No. 1 shall be done only between the hours of 11:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m., or on Sundays.

Where complete plans for a proposed building are filed with the department and where a foundation only permit is issued with respect thereto in accordance with rules established by the Superintendent of Building, a building permit may be issued for the remainder of the building within one year after the issuance of the foundation only permit, provided the plans and specifications comply with all applicable Los Angeles Building Code provisions in effect at the time of issuance of the foundation only permit.  (Amended by Ord. No. 180,619, Eff. 5/12/09.)"

and

"91.103.3. Violation of an Order. No person shall fail to comply with any valid order issued pursuant to any provision or requirement of this Code"

Here is an article about Geoffrey Palmer's company demolishing the Victorian building in 2003.

http://www.ladowntownnews.com/news/downtown-s-million-fighter/article_82dbd2e6-9c1e-5f96-9e49-42529c4475ad.html

"In April 2003, however, Palmer's troubles escalated. One Saturday morning his construction crew, which was working on the plot across from the Orsini, demolished an 1887 Victorian house, which preservationists considered the last historic home on Bunker Hill. Palmer did not have permits to level the structure, and a scandal erupted.

Already considered an irreverent developer by some, Palmer's image suffered further when his vice president, Peter Novak, called the razed house "a piece of crap." Novak further claimed that the crew had no choice but to level the house after a construction vehicle accidentally bumped it, causing it to lean dangerously to one side.

Though the graffiti-scarred structure was in a state of disrepair, and was reportedly a hotbed of illegal activity, the preservation community pounced. Ken Bernstein, director of preservation issues for the Los Angeles Conservancy, which lobbied city officials to severely punish Palmer, recalled the demolition as "shocking and egregious."

"The explanations for why he did not have a permit were rather farfetched and laughable," Bernstein said.

City officials enforced an obscure ordinance that barred Palmer from building on the property - which was slated to house a second phase of the Orsini - for five years. Some saw the punishment as the city's way of taking Palmer to task for his lawsuit over the Visconti."

"Developer Mark Weinstein said Palmer's approach to development poses certain problems.

"He's a really good business person, but he doesn't like to get involved in the political system, or wading through all the rules they have," said Weinstein. "He wants to stay out of the limelight, but he gets in the limelight."

"Last month, he ended his lawsuit with the city over the illegal demolition of the Victorian home. Palmer agreed to pay $200,000 to preserve historic homes in the area, and provide a series of community benefits including new parking, a public plaza and landscaping. In exchange, Palmer will be allowed to begin building the Orsini II.

"Again, the city got their pound of flesh and we get to risk our money to build a few hundred more apartments for the Downtown workforce," Palmer said."

More about that lawsuit and settlement.

Article talks more about Geoffrey Palmer.

Here is more about the Victorian house which was "accidentally" demolished.

http://articles.latimes.com/2004/jul/14/local/me-house14

"In June 2003, the city attorney filed two misdemeanor counts against Palmer alleging that he demolished the house without a permit and failed to obey a Department of Building and Safety order. Under an agreement, Palmer pleaded not guilty and this year entered a diversion program.

He also paid $50,000 to the Southern California Chinese Cultural Historical Society and agreed to get required permits for all projects; he will spend a year on probation. If he abides by the terms, the case will be dropped, said Eric Moses of the city attorney's office.

City officials invoked the "scorched-earth ordinance," which -- by prohibiting construction on the land for five years -- is designed to penalize whoever demolishes a historic property."

Geoffrey Palmer was arraigned, "Palmer is scheduled to be arraigned Sept. 24 (2003) on two misdemeanor counts of demolishing a house without a permit and failing to obey an order by the Department of Building and Safety."

http://articles.latimes.com/2003/aug/29/local/me-palmer29

Geoffrey Palmer could face criminal charges.

"A developer who leveled the last house in the city's Bunker Hill neighborhood could face criminal charges and be barred from building on the site."

"The crime is a misdemeanor punishable by a $1,000 fine and/or six months in jail. If the scorched earth ordinance is invoked, the title to the property will reflect a five-year ban on building."

"I don't know if a $1,000 fine is going to do much and it's unusual for people to do jail time," Keim acknowledged. "But what we always ask for is probation for two or three years.... If he does this anywhere else in the city, he's going to go back in front of the judge and pay the piper."

"Council File: 03-0926
Title
GIESE RESIDENCE / 840 WEST CESAR CHAVEZ BOULEVARD
Subject
Motion - On April 19, 2003, the Giese Residence at 840 West Cesar Chavez Boulevard was knowingly and wrongfully demolished by G.H. Palmer Associates (Palmer) without a demolition permit. Built in 1887, the Giese Residence was the last 19th Century home in the Bunker Hill area of downtown Los Angeles. On April 12, 2003, the Department of Building and Safety verified that the destruction of the Giese Residence had occurred without issuance of a demolition permit and immediately issued Palmer a "Stop Work" order and a 48-hour order to correct.

On May 2, 2003, the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) advised Palmer that it "did not, and could not clear [his] Application, because the proposed demolition did not comply with the Plan or applicable law." The Community Redevelopment Agency further informed Palmer that his "demolition of the 'Giese Residence' (a structure of historical significance" without review, mitigation or permit was inconsistent with the Plan and the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), and was not authorized by the Agency."

In 2002, Palmer had applied for a permit to demolish the Giese Residence to clear the site for future development. The Giese Residence was located within the boundaries of the Chinatown Redevelopment Project Area. Pursuant to the Chinatown Redevelopment Plan (Plan), the Community Redevelopment Agency was required to review Palmer's application to ensure conformance with the Plan.

In September 2002, following preparation of an Initial Study/Draft Mitigated Negative Declaration and public comment period, the Community Redevelopment Agency determined that the Giese Residence was an historical resource and that an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) was required under the California Environmental Quality Act prior to the Community Redevelopment Agency's clearance of Palmer's application for a demolition permit. The Community Redevelopment Agency's determination was communicated to Palmer's legal counsel on October 31, 2002. Not only had the residence been identified as an historic resource within the Chinatown Redevelopment Project Area, but it also appeared to be eligible for listing in the California Register of Historic Resources. The home had historic significance as a last remaining example of "Boom of the Eighties" architecture downtown and as the last remaining home in downtown's "Park Tact" laid out by Prudent and Victor Beaudry. Prior to the wrongful weekend demolition of the Giese Residence, Council District One (1) had been in communication with Palmer's legal counsel and agents in an effort to facilitate the relocation of this historical resource. Just two days before the demolition occurred, an interagency meeting was held to facilitate relocation of the house by a willing buyer to a vacant lot located in the Angelino Heights Historic Preservation Overlay Zone (HPOZ), less than a mile away.

In the late- 1980's, the City of Los Angeles enacted the so-called "Scorched Earth Ordinance" found in Section 91.106.4.1(10) of the Municipal Code to punish illegal demolition activity without proper permits and to deter developers from defying City permit requirements and State environmental laws. This ordinance authorizes the Department of Building and Safety to withhold development permits on a property for five years if it determines that demolition has occurred without proper permits.

THEREFORE MOVE that the City Council direct the Department of Building and Safety in consultation with the City Attorney to undertake all civil and criminal measures available to the City under the Los Angeles Municipal Code and State law to enforce and prosecute G.H. Palmer Associates for this clearly egregious violation of City codes and the California Environmental Quality Act, including but not limited to the invoking of Section 91.106.4.1(10) of the Los Angeles Municipal Code, otherwise known as the "Scorched Earth Ordinance" in relation to the demolition of the Giese Residence at 840 West Cesar Chavez Boulevard; and FURTHER MOVE that the Department of Building and Safety and the City Attorney provide a status report of the enforcement actions undertaken by them to the Planning and Land Use Management Committee of the Council with two weeks."

Built 1885, 6,621 sf lot, 2,842 sf home with fireplace, April 2002 $5,000,050 sold.

In the Los Angeles City Building and Safety website the address is for some reason listed as 840 E Cesar E Chavez, 90012 even though it is 840 W. The site also says no access to permit violations. I have never seen that before.

William Krissel, Daniel Saxon Palmer Sr, architect, developer

Geoffrey Palmer, son Grant Palmer, Polo partners

Geoffrey Palmer has been a bit of a controversy in downtown Los Angeles ever since his large controversial faux-Italian behemoth of an apartment complex burned down yesterday morning "mysteriously." http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-massive-la-project-destroyed-in-fire-was-controversial-20141208-story.html

Many have written about this controversial developer who has not granted an interview in the last ten years.
http://la.curbed.com/archives/2014/11/7_awful_stories_about_the_man_destroying_downtown_la.php

Here is a link to over 8,000 articles written about Geoffrey Palmer the real estate person and not the actor. You can see many other writers saying the exact same things which I've posted here. Geoffrey Palmer has been mentioned in over 8,000 media articles in relation to real estate. Geoffrey Palmer is therefore a public person as it relates to real estate and wealth.

https://www.google.com/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&rlz=1C1EODB_enUS618US618&ion=1&espv=2&ie=UTF-8#q=%22geoffrey+palmer%22+real+estate

While his father was a well known architect who brought affordable, modern design to the post war masses, Geoff has given LA ugly-faux Italian cookie cutter, cheaply made expensive rental units built in slum areas in a castle, fortress fashion. Most of the tenants are young, International USC students who are just looking for security and amenities.

Geoffrey H Palmer is also known for his extravagant taste in homes and home decor. He purchased the overly gaudy French 1913 1000 Cove in Beverly Hills for $29,000,000. 10 bed, 14 bath, 16,000 sf main house with guest houses. He then proceeded to decorate it in gold lame everything.

If you take a look at Geoffrey Palmer's lawsuits, he has a lot of slip and fall, small claims, medical malpractice... (see links above). Geoff Palmer sued the City of Los Angeles for violation of his civil rights. He didn't think it was fair that he should have low income units in his buildings even though this was mandatory for all builders.

June 2015 the Supreme Court just ruled that developers do have to have low income units.

http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-affordable-housing-20150615-story.html#page=1

I think the real reason Geoffrey Harrison Palmer has not wanted to give an interview in ten years is because he doesn't want to have to answer the hard questions. Why does he only care about money? Why is his house made out of almost solid gold and burgundy velvet? Is it physically possible to build a cheaper building than he does? Why does he insist on building shorter, squatter buildings? Is it because then he can use cheaper wood...even if it is highly flammable besides not as seismically fit?

See above for information about the alleged arsonist which was caught. The police said it was arson.

The result of the arson investigation should be interesting. Did Geoffrey burn down his building? Why did the arsonist only burn down the cheaper apartments almost right on top of the freeway and not building A which has all the amenities and higher priced units? Hmm, did the arsonist burn down the lower income units?! Did someone who hated Geoffrey Palmer burn it down? Did community activists burn it down or someone like ELF? Maybe his finance company burned it down? Based on the intensity of the fire, the fact that it seemed to all burn at once, I believe it was arson.

Building A was untouched. Building B in the inferior location smack on the freeway was destroyed. If you look at the diagram that is where the cheaper, smaller units were located.

Da Vinci, arson, low income units destroyed, others untouched, Geoffrey Palmer, arsonist,
Da Vinci apartment complex, before, after, fire, arson, Geoff Palmer
Building B was destroyed. The heat also destroyed part of the freeway and buildings 100 yards away, i.e. 300 feet. Building A is across the street, what, 40 feet away? yet it was not harmed when buildings 300 feet away were harmed. It's set to open January 2015. It has bigger, more expensive units with all the amenities in better location. It's not located smack dab on the freeway. When I used to drive by when the complex got over two stories I felt I could high five the workmen on the site if I were in the passenger seat. They were that close. The complex is maximum three feet from the freeway.

See above for info on the alleged arsonist. The case is still under investigation. No one has been convicted.

I personally feel Geoff Palmer really only wanted to open the nicer, better units away from the freeway. He maybe got stuck in approval process to open the cheaper, shittier units located almost on top of the freeway. I now think Geoff caused it to burn for insurance, planning, fuck you LA City reasons... Maybe approval process caused delay costs. Maybe he just wanted to fuck with the city.

An interesting thing. Geoff Palmer is EXTREMELY materialistic, into money, gold, lame, excess. His dad was a minimalist, modernist, into the environment, animals, nature, people, community. So was his second wife and Daniel Saxon Palmer Jr. He was into surfing, environment, animal causes like his mom.

Maybe Geoff Palmer was upset dad left his first wife, his mother, to be with another when he was just a kid. Maybe that is why son wanted to show up dad in the money department by creating the cheapest shit developments which hurt community, nature, look like shit....
