Real Estate Mogul Laurence Gluck Sues Architect Over Short Roof

Laurence Gluck

Real estate baron Laurence Gluck is suing architect James R. McDonough for making the roof in his $6 million South Hampton property 5 feet shorter than intended. The property includes a pair of houses with 7 bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, a fireplace and tennis courts outside. He is suing the architect $500, 000 because the architect counted the house’s chimney’s against Southampton’s 32 feet height limit, and roof is only 27 feet high.

The size difference isn’t trivial, according to Gluck’s representatives, who claim that the short roof leaves no attic space or room to run duct work through the second floor.

McDonough denies that accusations and says the height was never once discussed with Gluck.
