Norfolk's Harbor Walk condos, built with Chinese drywall, to get new developer | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

The beleaguered Harbor Walk condo project in Norfolk’s Ocean View neighborhood is being taken over by new developer Franciscus Co., months after it was revealed that the old developer – Henin Group of Florida – had been using defective Chinese drywall, The Virginian-Pilot reported.

Residents began to discover earlier this year that their luxury condominiums had been built with Chinese drywall that is believed to emit corrosive gases that damage metal and injure people.
