I like it, but I can see it leading to a mess of lawsuits that won't help anyone.
That's highly unlikely. Those people are lying to you. Nobody buying in the Pearl is guaranteed a view because there is so much development happening so quickly. If somebody honestly believes that a vacant lot on the riverfront (zoned for multi-family housing) is going to stay vacant forever, they're just delusional. In fact, real estate agents and developers in the Pearl specifically DO NOT guarantee views for that very reason.
How can the owners of the Riverscape guarantee that nothing will be built near them unless they own every vacant lot in the neighborhood? They can't.
