Shiraz Tangri was named one of the “Top 30 Real Estate Attorneys” in California by the Daily Journal.
The publication touted many of Tangri’s accomplishments and projects, including handling construction and regulatory issues related to a nonprofit foundation’s development of Los Angeles’ LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes, the $50 million cultural center celebrating Mexican-American contributions to Los Angeles, and the restoration of a historic downtown Los Angeles streetcar line—a project that’s completion became uncertain due to the recent abolishment of California municipal redevelopment agencies. In that case, Tangri helped the nonprofit developer of the streetcar line persuade the oversight board assigned to sort out financing for pending projects to continue its funding commitment for the line.
“By the end of this year, there will be a local election to provide for bonding for the construction cost, and we’re working on securing federal money…and other public money,” Tangri said.
The Daily Journal’s list was compiled through research, rather than nominations or pitches, and was based not only on transaction size and intricacy, but also innovative ways in which attorneys kept projects afloat in the battered economy.
