Risk of collapse: tenants must leave four buildings in Frankfurt

Frankfurt (Hesse) – Hundreds of supports secure the ceilings. The walls have cracks. They were not allowed into the basement for months. Now, the tenants of four buildings must leave. Acute danger of collapse!

Moving boxes, beds and suitcases pile up in the corridors of Küferstrasse 27-31 in the Sindlingen district. Thomas F. (54) reports to BILD: “I was very scared when the first neighbors had to leave their apartment at the beginning of the year. I overdosed on antibiotics from the stress and ended up in the hospital with intestinal bleeding.” He stayed anyway because he couldn't find another apartment. Frankfurt can afford it.

The owner informs of a “danger to life and physical integrity”

The Nassauische Heimstätte housing association informed first floor residents as part of a cover-up campaign: “It is currently not possible to return or stay in the rented rooms due to the current danger to life and limb.” It now says: “Ongoing investigations have shown that the stability of the ceilings above the second floor is no longer assured.”
