Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council has granted planning permission for 136 homes to Quintain Developments Ireland Ltd at Laughanstown and Brennanstown in Cherrywood, Dublin 18.
When complete, Cherrywood Village will comprise over 1,300 homes, two public parks and over 50,000 sq. ft. of retail and civic amenities in the village centre. There will also be primary and post primary schools, cycle and walking tracks and extensive green open spaces throughout the area.
Cherrywood Village represents around half of Quintain’s 118-acre land holding in the area that was acquired last year from Hines and King Street Capital. When fully developed, Quintain will deliver over 3,000 new homes in an area with extensive transport links and high-quality local amenities.
The masterplan will build on extensive in-place infrastructure which includes a road network, the Green Luas line, and public parks. The fully completed Beckett Park has all weather sports pitches, floodlights and changing rooms. Under construction is also Tully Park, built around early Christian monuments and Tully Church dating from ninth century: it will have four zones, a Heritage Zone, a Biodiversity Zone, a Play Zone and a Passive Zone.
Michael Hynes Joint Managing Partner Quintain Ireland said: “Cherrywood Village has stunning views of both the Irish Sea and the Dublin Mountains and is well linked to public transport through its proximity to the LUAS. This is the first step in a development that will provide much needed new housing supply in Dún Laoghaire–Rathdown that is well-connected to existing infrastructure and amenities. Our plans for Cherrywood Village will cater to a range of different housing needs with a particular focus on young families and first-time buyers.”
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.
The 136 homes receiving planning permission comprise: 80 two, three and four bedroomed houses, and 56 duplexes, with construction due to start as soon as the Covid-19 related lockdown on the sector is lifted.
Quintain launched in Ireland in October 2019 and has grown its Dublin-based team to over 25, including the appointment in 2020 of former head of Sisk Living Norman Higgins as its Head of Construction.
