David Copley's downtown condo sold for $3.4 million
He bought it when John Moores needed tenants in ballpark-related building
On May 30, the late David Copley's downtown condo was sold to software whiz Steve G. Bjorg for $3.4 million, according to Redfin and real estate records. Copley had purchased the condo when John Moores, former Padres owner, was searching for tenants for the luxury building near Petco Park. The Union-Tribune was passionately in favor of the $300 million subsidy for the ballpark. The address is 165 6th Ave. Homeowner association fees are $3,559 a month. It appears that Bjorg may have paid cash. According to Redfin, the condo is 4000 square feet, and has a dining room with 25-foot floor-to-ceiling windows, affording a look at Petco Park, among other things. (At the time of the purchase, people on the staff did not seem to know if David Copley had any interest in baseball.) The kitchen has four ovens and two dishwashers. There are three balconies and several fireplaces, and four parking spaces below the building.
