Grangegorman

In the years 2013-2016 there was a very large parcel of land bordering Lower Grangegorman and Brunswick street that was squatted on two occasions. The parcel had been accumulated over the previous decade by a speculator who ended up in NAMA and squatted from around 2013 by three distinct groups of people occupying different parts of the vast complex of houses, office buildings, warehouses and concrete courtyards. It was finally evicted in August 2016 and a huge students apartment complex is being built on the site.

NAMA own the loans on the site, their receivers are trying to get procession not in order to build homes or a community centre but in order to be able to sell it. Parts of this particular site have been lying derelict for about 15 years as part of the speculative cycle of the property millionaires. If the residents are evicted who knows how many more years that may continue.
