Another mall, another shoddy owner,,,,

Another mall, another shoddy owner,,,,

Another mall, another shoddy owner,,,,

(OP)
At least there wasn't anyone hurt - but the resume on the owner/developer is impressively bad. He has gone to jail in the past for bribing a city official to help out a development deal...

RE: Another mall, another shoddy owner,,,,

Tom...unfortunately it happens all too often. Developers focus on one thing...money. They are not concerned with safety, quality or performance....just how fast can I get this done and receive income from it or flip it.

I realize there's a lot of government intrusion in our lives; however, the health, safety and welfare of the public must be protected through the entire stream of development....the disconnect is primarily with the developers, who generally have no licensing requirement, no criteria to meet except perhaps a land use/development ordinance, and no responsibility to anyone, particularly the public.

RE: Another mall, another shoddy owner,,,,

While this developer may very well be a scuzzy individual, let's not be judge, jury and executioner before we have the trial. Construction accidents happen to good and bad developers. More to bad, but still......

Jed,

"In the past few years, Sabri has started projects without permits, taken the city to court, and allegedly disregarded building codes and ordinances resulting in thousands of dollars’ worth of fines, according to the Star Tribune."

I would certainly call this a pattern...

RE: Another mall, another shoddy owner,,,,

Tom, you just made Jed's point. I hope that was intentional.

RE: Another mall, another shoddy owner,,,,

Hope his insurance company refuses to pay...

Since nobody was injured, I don't really expect there to be a trial.
