Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From News.yahoo.com: “Tech Entrepreneur Edward Kim Buys $8.5 Million Pasadena Estate”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

With the COVID-19 pandemic now in its second year and many corporations pivoting to full-time remote work situations, Silicon Valley veteran Eddie Kim has left hectic San Francisco, where the tech unicorn he cofounded — payroll processor Gusto, now valued at a whopping $3.8 billion — is headquartered. Born and raised in the San Bernardino County city of Upland, Calif., the hard-charging entrepreneur has returned to his native SoCal, where he’s plunked down $8.5 million in L.A.’s San Gabriel Valley region.

Located on what has long been considered one of the best streets in Pasadena, directly atop the San Marino border and just a quick jog to the fabled Huntington Library, the snazzy new Kim estate was originally built in 1956 as a Hollywood Regency-inspired midcentury modern and designed by celebrated local architect Theodore Pletsch, who built much of modern San Marino and famously designed in a wide variety of architectural styles. Pletsch was known for his pithy quotes, among them “I’m no Frank Lloyd Wright – never wanted to be,” and “I have lived with over 500 women—because I have [designed] over 500 houses.”

A legal source said Vince Muscat had provided police with vital information about the case, which has shone a spotlight on corruption in the European Union's smallest country.
