The board of an Upper West Side condominium that sued the building’s construction company over alleged defects is seeking to end the four-year legal battle with a settlement.
The residents of Cathedral Gardens, a midrise at 52 West 110th Street on the corner of Manhattan Avenue, are having the property inspected to determine the amount in damages that Artimus Construction would be responsible for.
The building leaks when it rains, has poorly assembled cabinets and wooden floors and unsafe balconies, according to he suit, the Columbia Spectator reported. The property was developed with funds from the Cornerstone Program, an initiative of the Department of Housing Preservation and Development designed to spur the construction of mixed-income housing on city land. Half the building’s units are designated for college students.
