GALVESTON – The owner of a multifamily apartment building alleges that the general contractor failed to repair alleged defects with the construction.
Marina Riverbend Point LP filed a complaint on Dec. 21 in the Galveston County District Court against Strategic Construction LTD alleging breach of express warranties, breach of contract and other counts.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Sept. 21, 2015, it contracted defendant to build it a first-class multifamily project in League City consisting of 203 apartment units.
The plaintiff alleges following completion of the project in February 2018, many of the units and other areas of the apartment began to leak, which caused staining and deterioration in the interior and exterior of the units. The suit also states there are issues with the balconies, facade and roof.
The plaintiff alleges it sent the defendant a notice of defects and an opportunity to correct them per the contract, but the defendant did not agree to repair them.
The plaintiff holds Strategic Construction LTD responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to build the project in accordance with the contract specifications and has not honored the warranties.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against defendant for all amounts due and owing, with interest, attorneys’ fees, costs and such other and further relief to which plaintiff may be justly entitled. It is represented by Jason Johns, Sara Abbott McEown and Harris Huguenard of Jackson Walker LLP in Houston and Robert E. Booth and Megan S. Jones of Mills Shirley LLP in Galveston.
