Word is that this weekend Escala buyers started to get calls with their new pricing this weekend. Does anyone have examples of how they’ve re-priced the units?

    James Stroup said 30% off, under $500 a square foot.

    Got my call… About 30% off. But when I went last month to see what the finished home looked like I was shocked. Pillars where I didn't expect them, tiles laid badly, granite lines didn't match.. & all around shabby craftsmanship. The lobby is nice.. Changing prices is a start, but they took the club out. what's a vacant club going to be like in the building? Also rumored JE Dunn is filing a mechanic's lien like they did at Mosler Lofts, making it nearly impossible to buy or sell anything for 3 years. They said if we don't want to move forward they'll refund our deposit. Looks like the smart thing to do.

    Vince – you say they'll refund your deposit, with what terms? 100% back? Interest and upgrades? Did you hire an attorney to represent you or did they offer your money back willingly?

    27%. I was considering Enso or Olive 8 but Escala is now back in the running.
