Despite the denial of Louisville Collegiate School’s proposal to turn the Yorktown Apartments into a parking lot, the school is still evicting its tenants.
The 48-unit complex was bought by the school eight years ago and the plan to demolish it was met with resistance from both the residents and the local preservation district.
However, eviction notices remain in place and the tenants are expected to be out by the end of March.
Some tenants are calling on the school to help them with the cost of moving and finding a new place to live, but the school has not yet responded to these requests.
The remaining tenants will receive direct monetary assistance, applicable fees, and resources provided by BLDG Development, such as social workers.
The school’s spokesperson did not respond to inquiries as to why they are still evicting residents now that the parking lot project is dead.
The apartments will close on March 31st.
