Four Seasons Private Residences hit with liens, lawsuits

From the Seattle Times this morning, the Four Seasons Private Residences Seattle hasn’t been paying its bills. Read the full article.

More than a year after the $120 million Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences opened to considerable fanfare, a dozen firms that designed and built the ultraluxury project say they haven’t been paid in full.

They have recorded claims totaling more than $34 million against the downtown Seattle building. The largest lien, for $23.7 million, was filed in August by Lease Crutcher Lewis, the project’s general contractor.

Two Four Seasons subcontractors and lien claimants — Redmond millwork installer Surgent and Silverdale mechanical contractor Stirrett Johnsen — filed separate suits in King County Superior Court last month.

The lawsuits name Lease Crutcher Lewis, SHG, each owner of the building’s posh condos and a host of other defendants, and seek judgments totaling more than $1.8 million against Lewis and two other contractors.
