Out of Business

On October 26, 2006 the Department of Consumer Services filed charges against condominium developer EDC Development, dba the Enterprise Company and MP 13th Street Tower LLC, after an investigation uncovered that the developer deceptively sold 21 one-bedroom condominiums as two-bedroom units in a recently constructed South Loop building.

According to the blueprints submitted to and approved by the Department of Construction and Permits in 2003, certain units were designated as one-bedroom units with a large walk-in-closet. Beginning in 2003, the respondents deceptively advertised and sold the 21 condominiums as two-bedroom units, misrepresenting the large walk-in closet in written and pictorial marketing materials as a second bedroom or den.

Also charged in the filing are the real estate sales agents that sold units in the tower, Coldwell-Banker Residential Real Estate Inc., doing business as Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, and the construction company that handled construction of the building, Kenny Construction Company.

The respondents have been charged with two counts of condominium fraud and one count of deceptive practices for each of the 21 units sold. The first court date for the respondents is scheduled for November 7, 2006 at 9 a.m. at the Department of Administrative Hearings, 400 West Superior Street. If found guilty, the respondents could be ordered to pay fines up to $31,500.
