Current news for this company:
Tony Marnella, Inc. et al - Home builder
A "tiny" implosion, Tony Marnella's Oregon-based home building companies have filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. The companies seeking protection are Landing Development LLC, 550 Investments LLC, Tony Marnella Inc, and Tony Marnella, himself, according to The Oregonian.
We are unsure as to whether Marnella Homes LLC (marnellahomes.com) is involved though it is another company owned by Tony Marnella.
Per The Oregonian:
We were able to find what appears to be Tony Marnella's blog (tonymarnella.wordpress.com). The last post was a week ago on April 23, 2008. Therein, Tony sounds upbeat about real estate generally. An optimist until the end?
If you have any further details on these implosions, please let us know.

Important: This company is on our list of builder operations that have "imploded" (see also ailing lenders). This is a somewhat subjective call, and does not necessarily mean total shutdown or bankruptcy. It can also mean steep and rapid declines in enterprise value; or abnormal "bail-out" by corporate parents or peers in order to continue to operate. The builders may be residential or commercial.
