    Tenants in Corktown apartment no longer have to relocate

    Tenants at a Corktown apartment complex who were told they would have to relocate days before Thanksgiving because of health and safety concerns in their building can remain in their homes after their landlord restored water and heat over the weekend. 

    An inspector from the city’s Buildings, Safety, Engineering and Environmental Department (BSEED) confirmed on Friday that water had been turned on at the Victor Attar Court apartments on Porter Street, said Jessica Parker, chief enforcement officer for the building department.

    The heat was also turned on over the weekend except for five units that are currently using space heaters. Most of the 28 units in the building are occupied and tenants do not have to move out, Parker said this week. 

    “The residents can stay right now. … I am still working with the owner to get the permanent heating issue resolved because we don’t want tenants using space heaters,” she said.
