I heard that they were being bought up one by one, for what ends I don't know.

They're unsusual as they have accomodation on seperate floors each served by its own front door - hence the groups of three doors together. Its possible that Cutler got the idea from "Cottage Flats" being erected in parts of London about that time (he came from London to work in Cork, moving on to Belfast later.) Its notable that the Lord Mayor made sure that his name was on the plaque on the S end of the development, before building work had been completed - shades of the Banks of the Lee walk there, where the names of 4 different mayors can be found.
The total cost was a very reasonable Â£5,500 (about â‚¬60,000 today).
