This case involves a large urban development project. A city paid +$450 million dollars to construct a public transit terminal, two office buildings, and several other commercial spaces. This space was to be centrally located in the downtown area of the city and provide a new hub for public transportation. The public transit terminal was to be located directly underneath the office buildings, allowing employees to use public transit and enter their building directly. The two office buildings shared a large lobby that also functioned as the entrance of the public transportation terminal. Beyond the second floor, the buildings became separate structures. One year after the project was completed, the employees of the office buildings noticed some settling and structural issues. The city and the transit district brought suit against the engineering corporation for negligent design and integration of the numerous components and structures involved in the project.
