Background on the Biscayne

By July 7, 2006


If you’re interested in the Biscayne you might also be interested in this comment left recently here by Vito:

About the Biscayne — was previously known as the Egypt when they were rental apts. Building has had a lot of structural, siding and roof problems (was cheaply built in the first place) — buyer beware, as you will likely be assessed the cost of repairing these problems when they occur again – the developer will be long gone.

BTW, Grace sounds like she works for the developer (this is known as viral marketing). Take what she says as coming from a salesperson or their rep. The Egypt/Biscayne was built many years ago, after a bitter fight with the neighborhood — they made it shorter than originally planned. It was not been ‘developed’ recently (Grace is either on the payroll or …) — they were attempting to repair the place once again.

Apartment buildings are usually built cheaper than condos; this is an apartment building.

I can’t confirm his comments, so buyer beware, and do your homework!
