1 Bloor East - would be owners screwed?

Looks like the people lined up for their own piece of Bre-X/Lehman Brothers/Nortel :)

I believe Bazis International is also "building" at Yonge & Sheppard (Emerald Park)...not sure if buyers there will get anything ... ice=mobile

Interesting response from the developer:
The new lender purchased the $46-million loan taken out by Bazis from Societe Generale to finance the purchase of the site at a discount when Societe Generale ran into financial problems because of the fall out from the US sub-prime mortgage meltdown. At that time Bazis was negotiating with the French bank for an extension of the loan to allow it to weather the global liquidity crisis.

Bazis also had an agreement with Lehman Brothers to procure construction financing. Lehman Brothers, however, was forced into bankruptcy by the sub-prime crisis.
:idea: :) :lol: :razz: :D

Because Bazis is the company building at yng and sheppard as well. But that project hasn't even broke ground so I doubt the impact will be as severe.

Too bad, I was looking forward to the construction of those towers. I like skyscrapers. :D
