Construction defects galore at five-year-old Echo Aventura, lawsuit alleges, published in The Real Deal

In an article published on January 15 in The Real Deal, Phillip Joseph discusses a lawsuit between Echo Aventura Condominium Association Inc. and Property Markets Group (PMG) for negligence and violations of the Florida building code that resulted in nearly 60 construction defects and deficiencies. The association is suing PMG, general contractor John Moriarty & Associates, and 23 companies that worked on the twin-tower development at 3250 and 3330 Northeast 188th Street. Echo Condominium Association Inc. is represented by Ball Janik.
