Now a last jewel in jet-setting Bob Matthews’ New Haven empire is in foreclosure.

The property is 59 Elm St., the five-story, 99,850 square-foot circa 1926 office building that anchors the northwest corner of Orange and Elm streets.

A court hearing is scheduled Monday on a foreclosure action brought against Matthews’ 59 Elm LLC on Sept. 29 by a lender, U.S. Bank National Association.
