Forte Condos takes a swing
The Forte Condos has taken some hits from the buying public on their high monthly charges. In a move not often seen by the developer/sponsor, they've chosen to take their argument to the blogosphere on brooklynian.com. Among their explanations for their high monthly charges is that
- their budget takes into account non-union labor and that they have more personnel per unit than other projects, like J Condo.
- Their operating expenses take into account steam from the city. Other projects don't.
- Their budget was created with energy costs at their peak. Now that things have stabilised, they are going to revise their schedule B.
