Thanks to a “plugged in” tipster (and homeowner at the Beacon), we have the scoop on some big Beacon news: the class action lawsuit against The Beacon has been dismissed by Catalano without prejudice. (No word on the status of similar suits filed against The Metropolitan or Watermark.) Also from our tipster:
One other good piece of news that we homeowners received was that the ground lease was terminated 3 years early and in January everyone received a deeded interest in their unit (rather than the leasehold interest that we were sold). In my book, that makes my unit more valuable than when I bought it!
Overall, I’m really happy with my unit. Its a great location and a great place to live. I’m sure I’d get flamed for saying that by the “condoistas” on your site, but the truth is I’m happy and I didn’t pay $1,000+ psf so I never expected it to be the St Regis.
This should brighten the weekend for the sales office (20 units left the last time we checked) and any owners who are currently trying to sell (~15 resales currently listed) as it removes the stigma of pending litigation and increases the pool of potential lenders.
