Dublin real estate investor Tetrarch has significant further expansion plans for the Citywest Hotel complex, according to discussions it held with South Dublin County Council.

Minutes of a meeting between the investment group and senior council officials, including its council CEO Daniel McLoughlin, reveal that Tetrarch outlined 'a broad potential vision for the future use of the lands'.

This included private, social and affordable housing, as well as a football academy.

It raised the possibility of an expansion of the Luas line, new roads, a new interchange on the N7 and links to Saggart and Rathcoole.

Tetrarch also outlined plans for a commercial golf driving range and associated commercial activities including a restaurant and sports shop.

The company took full control of Dublin's Citywest Hotel, having bought out its investment partner Pimco last February. Citywest is currently Ireland's largest hotel with 764 rooms, as well as an 8,000-person-capacity convention centre and an 18-hole golf course.

The council said that the review of current development plans for the area would not begin until 2020.

It also said that there are currently sufficient lands zoned for housing.
