The Boroughs was an unfinished 91 home development in the Cork City suburb of Douglas. A significant eyesore for many years,  NAMA stepped in and worked with receivers to complete substantial works to the unfinished estate to provide 65 two, three, and four-bedroom homes to Tuath Housing, under a 20-year NARPS.

Completed in three phases between November 2017 and June 2018, the vision for the Boroughs by Cork County Council was to create a high-quality residential development that promotes sustainability.  Tuath worked with the Council, NAMA & the receivers to ensure that the redeveloped homes were available for residents eligible for social housing in this sought-after area.
