UPDATED, Nov. 17, 12:35 p.m.: The Eighty Seven Park development team ignored warnings about the damage the tower’s construction was causing to the Champlain Towers South feet away, leading to the deadly Surfside condominium collapse, a new lawsuit alleges.

The complaint alleges that Eighty Seven Park developer Terra, led by David Martin, and its team of contractors and engineers pushed forward with building the luxury condominium “for the sake of greed, speed, or, most likely, both,” despite recommendations about safer methods from its own engineer, according to the suit. It states that the defendants’ “negligence and gross negligence” caused the tragedy.
