A newly filed lawsuit claims that buyers at Related Group’s recently completed Paraiso Bayviews condo tower were deceived about the unit size.
Thirteen buyers are named as plaintiffs in the lawsuit.
Buyers were promised units with 1 bedroom plus a den, but no den was included in the final product, the lawsuit states. Instead of the den, there is a wall and door containing a closet with an air condition handler, according to the suit.
Interior square footage is estimated to be 15 to 20% lower than promised, the lawsuit also adds.
In 2017, the general contractor for the adjacent Paraiso Bay tower sued a Related affiliate over construction delays. That lawsuit stated that defective plans were delivered, causing constant revisions and completed work to be torn out.
