Residents feel under siege by city's 'supersize' developments
The capital's housing crisis means more high-density developments in sought-after locations will be built, writes Mark O'Regan
House prices in one of Dublin's most salubrious suburbs could take an unexpected dip if a number of new 'supersize' developments get the go-ahead.
And there are fears it could signal the arrival of further 'high density' developments in other desirable locations.
Planning experts warn a critical lack of green space means "reaching for the sky" is now the only option for some developers as the capital's housing crisis continues to escalate. They say the "name of the game" now, in terms of urban planning, is the battle to achieve increased density.
