NYC developer and affiliates facing suits on two properties

A pair of lawsuits against L&M Development Partners and its affiliates are proceeding as residents in two of the builder’s Harlem projects seek compensation for costs associated with remediating defective work done during construction of their homes. The litigations recently were featured in Crain’s New York Business and Habitat Magazine.

The boards at La Celia, a 123-unit condo at 64 E. 111th St., and a 75 unit complex created from the conversion of PS90, a school located at 220 W. 148th St., initiated the suits as the costs of the repairs spiraled into the millions of dollars.

Both complexes are represented by Joshua S. Bauchner, Esq. and Anthony J. D’Artiglio, Esq., attorneys with Ansell Grimm & Aaron, PC.

Attorneys from Ansell Grimm & Aaron PC successfully have represented clients in numerous construction defect cases, including Cypress Point Condominium Association, Inc. v. Adria Towers, LLC in New Jersey in which the state’s Supreme Court unanimously affirmed that construction defects and faulty workmanship that cause damage to other property is a covered event under the General Contractor’s general liability insurance policies.
