Lodges at Bear Hollow Village lawsuit settlement

The Lodges at Bear Hollow Village is located on the entry corridor to Park City Utah.  Built from 2006 to 2009 Bear Hollow includes stacked flat single level units called the Lodges, Townhomes with and without attached garages that are called Bear Hollow Village, and some single-family homes, also part of the Village.  All enjoy the use of the clubhouse, pool, hot tub, trails, and exercise amenities.  The new construction of Bear Hollow Ridge is the completion of the last building on site.

The Lodges at Bear Hollow Condo Association, the HOA, sued the original Lodges developer (BHR and Hamlet Homes) back in 2011 after discovering significant water damage on the exteriors of the tall stacked flat condos. A forensic building specialist evaluated the units and determined that the builder failed to meet essential construction standards necessary to protect the walls from water damage.

From the news article at KSL, “An eight-person jury returned a verdict after a five-day trial Tuesday, finding there were falling stones on the stone veneer of the condominiums’ exterior that rendered the buildings unsafe. The jury also ruled water-damaged walls threatened the structural makeup of the buildings and that the 97 condominiums were in danger of losing their fire safety rating.”

Roy Hood, the condo association president was quoted as saying in a prepared statement, “We’ll put the funds to good use in repairing the property damage as soon as the association receives the funds.”

As an edit to this, the Park Record also ran the story.
