4x01 Flight of the Phoenix (088)

Sudden Valley under Michael's control

Michael started the Michael B. Company in mid 2006 after his parents received a government stimulus package and refused to use it to finish Sudden Valley. Swearing the family off yet again, Michael sold his remaining Bluth Company shares to Lucille Austero and founded the Michael B. Company.

He bought Sudden Valley from the Bluth Company and finished the development. Shortly after construction ended in 2007, the California housing market collapsed. On May 1, 2008 Michael borrowed $700,000 from Lucille Austero to keep him afloat but by Cinco de Cuatro 2012 he had spent it all, despite having an article printed in Altitude magazine.

At the request of George, Michael hired G.O.B. to sell the houses of Sudden Valley. As a registered sex offender Tobias needed a house far from schools so he bought the model home. ("Smashed") G.O.B. then sold the rest of the homes to other sex offenders, causing Michael to fire him and kick him out of the Untitled Michael B. Project. ("A New Attitude")
