The proposed 43-story tower met criticism from planners and community groups for building the tower away from downtown. According to the News & Observer, the building site has not moved forward since May.

A representative in the Soleil Center sales office declined to comment on the lawsuit, but said the project is “on hold until the first of the year.” None of the principals working on the development have been reached for comment yet.

Hunter Roberts Construction Group LLC, the general contractor, signed onto the project in August of last year, according to the lawsuit. The contractor has yet to return calls for comment.
