Southwest Developer Sued for Nonpayment

The big development plans for the Southwest Waterfront aren't generating much news these days. But I keep hearing little tidbits about Baltimore-based Struever Bros Eccles & Rouse, one of the project's backers, which has been having money troubles (loan-defaulting troubles, more specifically) lately.

Today, the Washington Business Journal reports the group is being sued by staffing firm, KForce Inc, for unpaid contracts.

"KForce alleges it provided several workers to Struever Bros. in 2008, who worked as senior property accountants and in other positions," the piece states.

Struever owes nearly $100,000, plus interest, according to the suit.
