Property developer Westbank faces lawsuits over sprawling Mirvish Village redevelopment project
High-profile Canadian real estate developer Westbank Corp. is being sued by four construction companies for more than $25-million in unpaid work at the large Mirvish Village rental apartment project in Toronto, writes Shane Dingman and Rachelle Younglai. In a statement, Westbank said the issues stem from disruptions after it took over as its own construction manager on the site, and said that construction is “progressing” as it plans to finish the residential portion of the Mirvish project in 2024.
