    Updates
    The AOAO at Discovery Bay has an approximate 62% interest in the land and there are ~6 other interested parties holding the remaining 38% interest in the land. The AOAO is interested in buying these parties out, which, if successful, would give the AOAO an ability to work towards offering the owners the fee.
    Upon lease expiry - year 2039 - all parties with an interest in the land have to come to an agreement. Since the owners have an interest in the fee, they cannot be asked to vacate their unit, as is the case with many leasehold properties.
