    Box leases Redwood City office complex where it could move 1,700 workers

    Box has leased 334,000 square feet in Redwood City, allowing for an expansion of the company's operations in the Bay Area in a location that could contain about 1,700 employees, realty officials said Tuesday. 
    Federal prosecutors say Alan Tikal, 46, of Brentwood, stole nearly $6 million from homeowners struggling to pay their mortgages during the height of the real estate crisis. Instead of assisting them, as promised, Tikal used the money for personal gain, prosecutors said.  
    Advertised as a path to an affordable retirement, federally insured reverse mortgages are showing signs of a rebound, drawing the scrutiny of regulators seeking to reduce historically high default rates that have cost the government billions.
