The property at 7051 is a 22,991 sqft vacant lot while the property at 7061 is a 21,810 sqft lot with a 2 bed/1 bath 855 sqft home built in 1950. The combined property area is 1 acre which makes you wonder how are they going to fit 9 homes here and who wants to live next to the 405.
At any rate, these two properties were sold on December 31, 2013 for $900,000 combined from Thomas Rainville to Firmament Village LLC. Thomas Rainville operates a Rain Gutter cleaning operation based in Sun Valley and also owns other properties in the SFV. Firmament Village LLC links back to Aaron Mensch of Granada Hills who is a real estate agent and also owns many properties in the SFV.
I always like to look at the historical side of these properties that managed to remain empty for so long from my favorite website, historicalaerials.com (images shown below). It appears that I am wrong and a property used to exist on the vacant site going all the way up to 2005. Not sure what happened here but maybe a fire, termites, or something else took the fate of this location. And going back to 1947 before the 405 Freeway was built shows a wide open Van Nuys.
