Plans have been unveiled for more than 3,000 homes as well as shopping and office space at a new development in south Dublin.
The US investment firm Hines launched its Cherrywood plan, which will effectively create a new suburb in the capital.
Hines bought the Cherrywood site close to the N11 dual carriageway for €272m last year. It made clear from early on that it planned to develop the property itself.
The development involves the building of a new town centre, schools, leisure facilities, and about 3,800 new houses and apartments, as well as 170,000 sq m of office space.
Hines’ boss in Ireland Brian Moran said his company was “poised” to be start construction, with access roads to be built from this autumn.
“[Cherrywood] will be a landmark development integrating new homes, retail, work and leisure facilities within an urban design framework never previously seen in Dublin or in Ireland,” he said.
Hines is holding a series of open days this week for the public to view the plans. The plans can be viewed at Cherrywood Business Park.
