Nationwide Lender Blacklists Condo Projects

In Business March 5

Lenders such as BankUnited have elected not to lend to some areas because of declining prices and foreclosures. The South Florida Business Journal reported that Bank United drew up a non-permissible condominium-project list of 191 condo developments in Las Vegas and Florida that it wouldn't finance.

The list included such Las Vegas projects as Allure, the District, Manhattan, Newport Lofts, Panorama, Park Avenue, One Queensridge Place, Meridian at Hughes Center, Sky Las Vegas, Soho Lofts, Turnberry Place and Turnberry Towers.

Local brokers, however, said they haven't used the lender for high-rise loans and cited other options.
