Last year I put a substantial deposit down on a condo which I am told I cannot get back if I decide not to move forward with the purchase. I did negotiate a very good reduction in price however.
The closings will begin on March 3, 2010.
I would like to hear from everyone that has money down on this project whether you want to close or not. For that matter I would also like to hear from anyone that is just interested in buying into the Promenade at this time.
If you email me your contact info, email or phone number, I would like to organize a meeting with all of us so we can talk about our concerns about how this project is moving forward and what, if any, our options are.
Mainly I would like to know how many of us there actually are. Linda Fontana does not seem to be clear on the answer to this.
Time is of the essence so please contact me ASAP. Thanks.

I just spent the month of December renting at Marina Village, it was loud, partying, dogs barking morning to night !!! And it wasn't tourist season yet !!! Boynton has gone way down hill from the nice little residential town I remember 10-12 years ago. My opinion: they were trying to make it another Delray, ain't gonna happen !!!!

Their trying to make a silk purse out of a sows ear !!! Eventually Boynton Beach will go back to the nice little town it used to be !! And these condos you spent all your money on will turn into 55+ communities. Its happened before in other towns in FL.

I called The Promenade today and spoke to Amanda. Amanda stated that the closings won't take place until April of 2010. My email address is getupandrun4it@yahoo.com. Before I plunk down any cash I would rent there first, if anyone has a unit and want to rent I would be interested. I did not get any information for you as far as what will happen to buyers deposits. You may want to go over your contract with a fine toothed comb. If need be take it to an attorney and have him evaluate it to see if you have any loopholes for getting your deposit back.

Default Promenade Condos

I would like to rent a two bedroom w/den at the Promenade in the not to distant future. I don't know how the closings are going or if they are going on yet. Contact me at jrsygrl129@aol.com we can discuss. Thanks
By the way, to anyone interested, I live in Boynton Beach and I think it is a town that is up and coming. The population is about 60,000 and there is shopping and good restaurants.

What is the problem with the Promenade? I passed by there yesterday...It certainly looks like a beautiful building....Did the builders not promise what they proposed? just curious as to the issues of
those who put a deposit down? true the prices have plummeted, but that's all over Palm Beach County
and other counties....I live in a condo and our association just informed us that we now have 15 foreclosures...that mean 15 units are not paying their monthly dues...shame....some are foreclosed, some have not yet...meanwhile the rest of us are picking up the tab....Laws certainly need to be changed here.

You should make sure the builder isn't in foreclosure. If they don't sell the units you will be paying all the association fees for the empty units like the poster above has said. I would never buy a condo in Florida right now because of these reasons. Wait for the second housing bubble that experts are saying will be much worse than the first one.
