Mosler Lofts Getting Soaked in Legal Disputes
A puddle of lawsuits have been reported in the P.I. since we last posted about the $6.7 million lein on Mosler Lofts last week. A battle between who’s responsible has erupted between JE Dunn and the Schuster Group. The Schuster Group has responded to JE Dunn claiming that they (Dunn) were in breach of contract for substantial and costly delays.
Additionally, more liens on the property have flowed over to subcontractors and suppliers.
In its lawsuit, Belltown Development Partners says it paid JE Dunn for subcontractors’ work and materials suppliers furnished, but Dunn did not pass on the money.
If that wasn’t enough, another lawsuit filed in December is asking the developer for a minimum of $325,000 to repair damages to the Kroll’s Map Co.–Mosler Lofts neighbor. The claim is asking to compensate Kroll’s for lost business and physical damages from not properly protecting the building during construction.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like anyone will be swimming out of this one anytime soon.
