Luxury Residential Project Construction Delayed by COVID-19
We are representing a national real estate developer in a dispute involving delays in the completion of luxury residential project in mid-town Manhattan. This engagement followed our representing the developer earlier in the drafting and and negotiating the construction contract as well as negotiating the Project Labor Agreement (PLA) which governed wages and work rules for all labor that worked on the project.
The post-pandemic delay set in motion the postponing of the occupancy of the tower. The dispute seeks damages for the delay and whether the delay was attributable to a force majeure-Covid-19.
