A proposed housing project near Disneyland that has fueled a rancorous debate over the future of Anaheim's resort district and the city's relationship with the entertainment giant may be dead.
Details of the deal's possible collapse are contained in a lawsuit that project developer SunCal Cos. filed last week against the owners of the 26-acre parcel where 1,500 condominiums and low-cost apartments were to be built.
SunCal says the Frank Family Partnership reneged on the $46-million deal to sell the land. SunCal is asking that the contract be enforced, along with $60 million in damages. The land is currently occupied by a mobile home park.
The lawsuit, filed in Orange County Superior Court, alleges that the Frank Family Partnership conspired with unnamed third parties to kill the agreement.
