My old-new project is a large bakery. A hottie called Paula had a cute little breakfast shop in the new high-tech zone. She made excellent croissants and a good coffee. She decided to upgrade and bought a failed rather large meat shop and hired the best designers (guess whom), achieved all the permits, and started to build the project. At this point, she sold the project "as is" and a striking ice-blue-eyed blonde appeared as representative of the new owners. Cutiepie Paula moved on to manage a large bakery and put on fifteen kilos. The ice-blue-eyed monument hired an impressive hulk of a project manager, who unfortunately had no idea of what he was supposed to do and/or had no time to oversee the project. On the march, the project evolved to become an industrial bakery with neither coffee nor croissants. The street entrance was walled in and the large glass walls were painted on. The original permit was for a large coffee shop - restaurant.
So the business is operating three years without permit and the authorities started a legal action to close it down. Since they cannot sell to large clients, there is little income. The owners are desperate, the business is eating up their capital. They hate the whole situation and they hate the need to invest in additional improvements. They specially hate the original designers. After going through several of them and two or three lawyers, they came back to the original team. But the fire fighters's rules have changed and now they demand better protection. The environmental authorities demand to deal with the hot air and carbon dioxide. The kitchen and the restaurant area are fully equipped but used for something else. The whole thing is wrong. The end is not in sight.
