Man sues over $53million apartment

A man who spent $53.5million buying a penthouse apartment in New York's famed Plaza Hotel says the apartment turned
out to be an 'attic-like space' with low ceilings and obstructed views, and he is suing for a refund plus damages.

The apartment's anonymous buyer made the purchase based on seeing a video. Because obviously, when spending $53million
on a home, why would you want to see it in person?

He is now suing the hotel, developers El-Ad Properties and brokers Stribling & Associates for breach of contract, fraud,
deceptive trade practices and negligence.

The buyer, who local media have identified as Russian financier Andrei Vavilov, is asking for the return of his $10.7 million
deposit and for an additional $30 million in damages.

'This is a classic bait-and-switch,' the buyer's attorney, Y. David Scharf, said on Monday.

'My client was led to believe that it would receive one of the most luxurious apartments in New York history.

It got far less than what it bargained for.'

The lawsuit claims that among its other flaws the apartment has small windows and ugly drainage grates.
