Lawsuit Filed for 150 Nassau Condominium

June 5, 2013

In a lawsuit filed on June 5, 2013, our client, the Board of Managers of the 150 Nassau Condominium, is seeking an injunction to protect the safety and well-being of the condominium's residents and its landmarked and historic building located at 150 Nassau Street in New York City. The lawsuit alleges that the owner of the retail unit, Spruce NYC LLC, recently leased its unit to a "Denny's," a fast-food chain open 24-hours a day and often an incubator for violent and disorderly conduct.

"The evidence will demonstrate that Defendants, in clear violation of the Condominium's governing documents, submitted plans to the New York City Department of Buildings which expressly stated that the construction of the Denny's will affect the Condominium building's structural integrity. It speaks volumes that Defendants repeatedly have refused to provide the Condominium Board with copies of the Denny's lease or any of its plans for the retail unit to attempt to disprove that they have not and will not violate the Condominium's governing documents," said David Pfeffer and Gabriel Levinson who represent our client.

This case was covered in The Wall Street Journal on June 6, 2013.

David Pfeffer, Chair of the Construction Practice and Gabriel Levinson, a Counsel in the Litigation Practice, are handling the matter.
