Planning permission has been applied to for the construction of 850 houses in South Dublin by Victoria Homes.
The project, expected to cost a total of €375 million, will be one of Ireland’s largest residential building projects since the beginning of the recession if all goes according to plan.
With the location chosen for Glenamuck Road in Carrickmines, the scheme is going through An Board Pleanála’s fast-track process.
“We’ll be looking for 850 units and that’s a mixture of apartments, duplexes and three- and four-bedroom houses,” Derek Byrne, co-director of Victoria Homes, told The Sunday Independent.
The first phase of the project would consist of 200 houses, with an overall goal of creating hundreds more over the years.
On top of this, Victoria Homes has sites in Dublin 14, 16 and 18 and plans for an additional 1,000 or so units.
