The Legal Battle Over Mandarin Gardens Airport Lease Appears To Be Over

Big Bear City, CA March 8, 2012 2:00pm - For nearly six years a dispute over the lease and subsequent purchase option of  a portion of the Big Bear City Airport Terminal Building has keep all parties involved in a state of limbo but that state appears to be coming to an end.  According to a recent judgment issued on February 29, 2012 Barry Wang doing business as Wang’s Mandarin Gardens Restaurant, must vacate the building some time around April 1st, 2012.  Issues surrounding the rights and ownership of the terminal building were resolved after a condominium plan, CC&R’s and a Grant Deed was filed on April 7th 2011.  The building was divided into 4 units with Evergreen Properties ownership of units 1, 2 and 4 and the Airport Districts ownership of unit 3 clearly defined.  At that time Wang’s Mandarin Garden, Inc. was able to exercise an option to purchase unit 4 now housing the restaurant, in addition, the monthly rent would otherwise increase.  As this recent judgment states the purchase option was not completed and past rent has not been paid so the Superior Court issued a judgment in favor of Evergreen and against Wang for $68,000.00 and other expenses such as attorney fees. Wang must now vacate the premises and turn it over to Evergreen Properties.  The Mandarin Garden has been at this location for nearly 30 years.
