I am sure everyone remembers the disaster created by Tim Barton of the JMG Development Company of Dallas at the Gates Condos in Avon. While he managed to save the already poured foundations at the controversial site, he also managed to mislead all of the Valley into thinking he was building a first class operation at the foot of Beaver Creek.
Gateway Land came in as Listing Broker for the project and sold over half of the units before learning that the construction was far inferior to its initial representations. At the same time, the Westin came in with their classy project and the Gates was done for. Units that were going to sell for over $1 million became a laughing stock. Tim Barton has fled the scene and word is that he led the Jean Paul Mitchell organization into the same black hole as well.
Now a new company, Condo Capital Solutions has entered the fray by purchasing the defunct $40 million loan that had been in default for the past several years. The property will be renamed the Ascent and units will be repriced to a more reasonable level starting in the mid $300,000s.
