Recently lived in an apartment with a percentage of social housing tenants. One particular block was all social housing and was pretty much a hell hole. Security had to actually be introduced to keep the place from being wrecked. I'd think twice.

On the plus side they're at home all day so free security.

Flipside of this is they like to stay up late.
Unless they are the reason you need security

I knew someone who bought one of these originally... build quality was disgraceful...

Anyway, she was wondering why the water in the shower was running blue... plumber couldn't figure it out, he thought it was a chemical reaction to copper pipes, builder was clueless and said it would go away...

When the shower started putting out purple water she realised that she had changes the thing that makes the toilet water coloured & she had been showering in toilet water... Don't know how they managed it, but when she flushed the bog it back washed into the tank.

Theres allot wrong with this development beyond the fire issues. For that reason, I'm out! Would never buy one of those monstrosities, no one should.

I would live to see this in action.
I’m not sure the laws of construction or fluid physics can allow this to happen at all?

The toilet is flushed from the cistern. The cistern is filled from the storage tank but the filler is not connected to the water in the cistern in any way.

I can’t see how the water from the toilet could have possible ended back up in the storage tank?

Flushed water wouldn't be obviously blue. Shaggy dog story.

The total cost to the taxpayer to re-build is just shy of €55 million.

Dublin city council said the re-biuild budget was €10 million, so it coming in at over 5 times the original rebuild budget, not good value for money imo.

What percentage are going to be social housing?

I drove by the complex the other day, visually to the eye the finish looks good though.
