1,300 homes to be built by 2025 in Dublin's Cherrywood
Some good news on the housing front.
A development company, Quintain Ireland, is planning to build 1,300 homes in Cherrywood, south Dublin by 2025, with construction due to start before the end of year if all goes to plan.
Cherrywood Village is located on a 65-acre site within the Cherrywood Strategic Development Zone (SDZ) and will comprise a mix of new houses, duplexes and apartments with two public parks, 27 acres of green space, and over 4,300m² of retail and civic amenities in the village centre.
Cherrywood is located in the Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown area, and was seen as a prime location to develop before the economic boom.
The plans for what is being referred to as "the most connected village in Ireland" will see a Luas Station located at the heart of the project, while there will also be extensive cycle paths and walking routes, including The Cherrywood Way, which will connect the village to Loughlinstown to the south, and Foxrock to the north through a network of greenways.
With construction set to begin by the end of the year, the first homes are due to be completed at some point in 2021, with the target market seemingly being first-time buyers.
Eddie Byrne Joint Managing Director Quintain Ireland said:
"We are excited to be launching this Masterplan for what will be the most connected village in Ireland, putting community, accessibility and sustainability at the centre of its plans.
"Cherrywood Village will deliver much needed new housing supply to an area that is well-connected to existing infrastructure and amenities.
"The 1,300 homes we are planning will cater to a range of different housing needs with a particular focus on young families and first-time buyers."
