The sales agent states that only 20 units remain unsold and that having a McDonald’s on the ground floor hasn’t affected sales. But one has to ask the obvious question: How many of the 187 buyers were informed that a fast food chain would be the commercial tenant BEFORE they purchased? I would venture to guess that the sales office professed NOT to know which commercial tenant would occupy the ground floor, and probably led prospective buyers to believe that some kind of “high-end” business would lease that space.
