Lawsuit against Argo could stifle Lewiston project

A legal dispute between Argo Marketing and its former landlord could put a halt on a luxury apartments development being proposed by the company’s founder and CEO.

The Sun Journal reported that the Lewiston-based call center and its CEO, Jason Levesque, are being sued by its former landlord, a subsidiary of the the Lewiston-Auburn Economic Growth Council. The lawsuit, filed in Androscoggin County Superior Court, argues that Levesque and Argo owe $65,000 in back rent and other charges from when the call center was leasing space from the economic development group. The call center moved into its own space in early 2014.

Levesque told the newspaper that the ongoing lawsuit could stifle his $1.3 million redevelopment of the former Marcotte Furniture building on Lisbon Street. The fate of the project, which would convert the building into luxury apartments, could be decided by the end of the week, he said.
