The owners association at a four-year-old condominium complex in St. Petersburg sued the West Palm Beach-based developer Kolter Group over alleged construction defects.

The condo owners sued Kolter and affiliated companies in Pinellas County Circuit Court, alleging they committed dozens of building-code violations in the construction of the 95-unit Water Club Snell Isle Condominium.

The lawsuit cites evidence of construction defects including peeled paint, peeled stucco, excessive condensation on windows, joints and structural slabs that were improperly installed, and sink and counter heights that do not meet code requirements.

The Tampa Bay Times reported that Kolter did not respond to a request for comment.

Kolter is best known in the Tampa Bay area for its development of a much bigger condo project in St. Petersburg, a 41-story, 253-unit tower called ONE St. Petersburg.

Nearly sold out at unit prices as high as $4 million, ONE St. Petersburg will be among the tallest buildings on the west coast of Florida when its construction is completed this year. [Tampa Bay Times] – Mike Seemuth
