Buyers File Lawsuit, Claim Units At Paraiso Bayviews Smaller Than Promised

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.

So they don’t forfeit their deposit. That space is hardly a den. Look at the last page in the lawsuit.

You have to close on the date assigned or face interest charges and fees, even if your unit isn’t finished, since TCO isn’t issued per unit, its per floor…so to intimidate you to close, they threaten with fees…and since you have 50% already in play, you don’t have many viable alternatives…

Related was supposed to build a large park, they alternatively built the restaurant Amara taking up half the space, it is now for sale at $20,000,000.

The park was supposed to be double the size, then they decided to build their personal restaurant, AMARA…

I’ve seen some funny examples of “dens” in the last go around of construction. It’s usually a slight indentation along a wall barely big enough for a little table at best.

As expected from the Arquitectonica, when a parking garage with Swiss cheese wholes spans a block, and “bay views” partially look into somebody else’s bathroom.

This is why I always get perturbed when I hear someone bitching about Melo. The buildings Melo put up are apartments, the Paraiso towers are all condos, and there lies the difference. Apartment?.. you can walk away. Condo?.. you brought it and you’re stuck with it.

Lol what are you even saying? Memo builds condos as well. aria is designed quite well, ironically, also architecture by ARQ, shows that it’s not just having a good designer, but a good developer to move the decisions along in the right direction.

I’m sure most of the condos will used as air bnb’s or rented out for six month leases.

I own a unit here, bought a penthouse. I was pleasantly surprised with the unit, it seemed bigger than what I saw on the renderings. Sorry that these people have to go through this. Mine is a 2 beds/ 2 bath. Surprised I paid just a tad bit more than someone on the 17th floor while my unit is on the 42 floor. Had a few items I needed repaired on the punch list including removing the ugly green color from the back splash, they did it no problem and the unit is phenomenal. Very happy with the end result.

These units are a joke, my friend’s parents just moved into a two-bedroom and his dad can’t even fit a bed and a dresser in his room, which overlooks the catwalk outside lol. A million dollars for a dorm apartment with nice finishes. At least the balcony and views are good.

Also hey, you guys need editors? “air condition handler”
