Contractor sues developer of mall
A construction company has sued the developer of a jumbo-size mall under construction in Wesley Chapel, alleging breach of contract. In the suit, Orlando-based VMS Builders Inc. said it had a $2-million contract to build a retail store at the Grove at Wesley Chapel being built at the northwest corner of County Road 54 and Interstate 75. The mall developer, Echo Developers LLC, terminated the contract but still owes the builder more than $300,000, the suit claims. An attorney for VMS could not be reached, and a spokeswoman for the mall would not comment Monday. Big-box stores including Bed, Bath & Beyond, Best Buy and Dick's Sporting Goods have signed contracts for spots in the $175-million mall, scheduled to open this year.
