Daniel’s column on 20 March dealt with the Tampa Chump, I mean Trump Tower on Ashley Drive. The Tribune also had an article on the subject on 14 Feb. You can read it here. Apparently there are two condo customers who want to get out of their Trump condo because they are unhappy the with delays and the possibility the contract will not meet the expected move-in date.
There are been numerous problems with the project including a lack of financing (Trump is basically only using his name, not his money), possible unstable ground near the river, unresolved ownership issues, and unpaid contractors. Now these condo investors are getting a little antsy as each deadline comes and goes. It’s unlikely they’ll have any recourse at this poit since as long as the condo contract hasn’t been broken, they basically just need to wait until the deadline before they can cry about not being able to move-in on time.
Hey, if you’ve got approximately $150K for a Chump Tower Condo, you can afford to wait until the deadline has passed before filing your lawsuit. It’s not Trump’s fault you chose to buy a glorified apartment after seeing too many Apprentice episodes. As the saying goes, there’s a sucker born every minute.
