Long Running Cork City Eviction Controversy Has Come To A Close With Multi-Million Euro Deal
A long running eviction controversy at a city centre apartment building has come to a close in a multi-million euro deal.
The Leeside Apartments have been sold to Clúid Housing Association, who plan to use the majority of the 78 apartments for social housing.
The building was purchased in 2017 by vulture fund Lugus Capital who issued 13 households with eviction notices on the grounds of substantial refurbishment.
However residents hit back claiming the work could be done without eviction- something an independent engineering report confirmed.
