“This was a big shock when I heard this,” said property co-owner Noor Jooma with Fern Developers of Dallas. “It was 75 to 78 percent complete. Most of it was pre-leased.”
He said he wasn't certain at this moment what his company will do regarding the complex.
He said the seniors who had pre-leased apartments were very happy to have a place made just for them. “This is very tragic for those seniors and very tragic for the people of Mineral Wells.”
