who'd have thought living directly over a nightclub would be noisy??

b'way

You know, I don't even know what to say about this one.  I have to laugh, I think.  TMZ is reporting that residents of The Broadway Lofts are complaining about the late night noise that comes from S Bar which is right downstairs.  Um, really?  You didn't think living at Hollywood and Vine was going to be noisy?  The residents are so peeved, they've filed a lawsuit saying S Bar is operated in an "unreasonably and unacceptably disruptive manner." They say the music is so loud, "many residents have been unable to fall asleep prior to 2:00 in the morning." They say the club's operators -- SBE and the Kor Realty Group -- have totally and "callously" ignored their complaints, all while raking in "huge profits."

Here's the thing.  While I haven't personally sold any units in The Broadway, I have sold several new development condos this year, and there is a stack of disclosures an inch thick, and I can't imagine for a second that this particular possibility wasn't covered 5 different ways.  It will be interesting to see how this is resolved.

reminds me of people who move near an airport because of the cheap land prices, then complain about the airplane noise.

I guess it all depends on who was there first: the condos or the nightclubs. If the condos were there first, they may have a legitimate complaint. It does seem a little ludicrous though!
