WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Tenants are demanding action after moving into The Hub on Campus Sunday.

As we reported, residents aren't pleased with the week-long delay to move in or the conditions of the apartment.

Tenant Juwon Lee presented her case to the city of West Lafayette this morning. She's asking for an investigation into The Hub on Campus corporation.

The apartment is marketed as luxury off-campus living yet that's not what tenants are seeing. 

Lee said the job was rushed. She believes the corporation knew they wouldn't be ready to open on time months before they made tenants aware. She said the company didn't tell tenants earlier so they wouldn't lose out on money.

West Lafayette Mayor John Dennis addressed the delay in students not being able to move in.

“Our inspection team has been working day and night to try and get these things up to code and make sure they're going to be safe for our students to move into and some of them did not quite meet that threshold and because of that we refused to issue a certificate of occupancy,” said Dennis.

Mayor Dennis said delays in construction resulted in delays with the city being able to have their final inspection sooner. The certificate of occupancy was issued on late Saturday, five days after the initial move-in date.

Juwon Lee plans to take her concerns to the Attorney General of consumer affairs. Mayor Dennis said the city has limitations on how they can get involved.

“We're here to make sure the properties are safe. The advice that we gave her through the board of works is to contact an outside source like the State Attorney's General office or somebody at that level,” said Dennis.
