Harmon Inc., an Eden Prairie, Minn., glass specialist, said in a suit filed last week in Davidson County Chancery Court that it is owed $120,000 by West End Summit Development LLC, a partnership led by Nashville developer Alex S. Palmer, and general contractor Bovis Lend Lease Inc. Advertisement
The company says neither has paid it for engineering, shop drawing and other work related to designing the exterior curtainwall for the two-tower project. Harmon has also filed a lien on the property.
Plans for the $310 million West End Summit project call for building two 25-story towers: an office building and a combined hotel and condominium. Palmer and Bovis started work in April 2007, excavating a block-wide pit at 1600 West End Avenue for the development’s parking garage and foundation.
But construction has been suspended for about a year, as Palmer deals with the credit crunch and awaits an anchor tenant for the office portion of the project.
According to the suit, Harmon’s work was done after building had stopped.
