NY Investor Buys Loring Park Building Igniting Displacement Fears

A New York investor has purchased the Buckingham Apartments on the corner of 15th and LaSalle. This historic building is home to many people who are on fixed incomes. Some are disabled. Others are elderly people who have lived in the building for decades.

If Jacob Frey, Lisa Bender and John Edwards truly care about affordable housing, they will not allow this investor to displace the long-time residents of this building.

Somehow, I don't think we will see any videos on Wedge LIVE! imploring the city to keep Buckingham affordable.
