Roy Cohen is quoted in the Philadelphia Business Journal article, “Multiple mechanic’s liens filed over construction of Comcast Technology Center,” in regard to the firm’s representation of Ray Angelini Inc.
Millions of dollars in mechanic’s liens have been filed against affiliates of Liberty Property Trust, the developer of the new Comcast Technology Center, and L.F. Driscoll, its general contractor on the new skyscraper, and other entities related to the tower’s construction, according to documents filed in Philadelphia Common Pleas Court.
One of the largest liens filed was initiated by SteelFab Inc. of Alabama. It filed in August 2018 a mechanic’s lien for a total of $11.8 million of which $5.7 million is for an unreleased retainer and another $6.1 million for “additional/changed work,” said court documents.
SteelFab said in court documents that it had completed on June 25, 2018 the work it arranged under a contract with L.F. Driscoll but had not been paid. “SteelFab provided construction services including but not limited to providing steel material, labor, equipment and related services to L.F. Driscoll Co. in accordance with a written contract between SteelFab and Driscoll dated August 6, 2014,” SteelFab said in court documents.
