In her statement of civil claim filed in B.C. Supreme Court Campbell says she paid a $368,000 deposit on a condo in the new residential high-rise at the Hotel Georgia in 2007.
Her lawyer Bryan Baynham says the pre-sale agreement with Georgia Properties Partnership was that that the condo would be finished December 2011.
"The project wasn't finished on time. They were more than a year late and not surprisingly the people don't want to complete and they want their deposit back."
Campbell and the 12 other pre-sale buyers are suing Georgia Properties Partnership, Georgia Trust, Hotel Georgia Management Ltd and a numbered company to get their deposits back with interest.
The lawyer for the developer says a detailed statement of defense will be filed either later today or Monday.
The allegations have not yet been proven in court. A trial date has been set for next January.
The landmark Hotel Georgia was built in 1927. The developers opened a 48-storey high-rise luxury residential tower adjacent to the original building as part of a redevelopment in January 2013.
