After a large fire displaced the well known AK Press at 674 23rd Street in West Oakland, Haber acquired the building.
In 2015, Housing activists awarded them as Eviction Profiteers Of The Year

The Park Hotel at 1040 Folsom Street was cleared of long term tenants after a fire. While the tenants were waiting for repairs to be able to move back in, the owner Nasir Patel leased the building to Haber and Gutman, dba The Negev. Instead of the displaced tenants being contacted to move back into their rooms, The Negev opened as a digerati dorm. From a Craigslist ad: $1250 Negev Folsom!: Family dinners on Sundays, parties every 3 weeks, yoga on Fridays, and weekly talks from well known people mostly in the technology world.“
The Negev Folsom at 1040 Folsom St. was the subject of a lawsuit filed by tenants displaced by a fire there who were not offered their units back at their former rent rate, as required by the San Francisco rent-control ordinance.
Live/work tenants were displaced in two days with help from Oakland City Building Department just after Haber’s 1919 Bayside LLC took over as property manager. Haber demolished the building without a demolition permit.
Haber has reportedly been buying out existing tenants and has announced plans to build a beer garden on the hotel's roof and rent refurbished hotel rooms out to tourists at more than double existing prices, according to current residents.
