A new plan is coming… Thousands of homes planned for Dublin

Dublin: A substantial housing initiative is underway near Dublin, with a groundbreaking project set to create thousands of homes within the Glasnevin Industrial Estate, merely three kilometers from the heart of Dublin. The expansive development is strategically positioned, bordered by Finglas Road to the east of Glasnevin Cemetery, Rathoth Road in Ashtown to the west, Cabra to the south, and Tolka Valley Park, which serves as the northern boundary between Cabra and Finglas.

Spanning across 75 hectares, this transformative project aims for completion within the current year. The housing estate is situated on well-connected land, boasting various transportation facilities, including the Las Rail system. The standout feature of this initiative is its accessibility, ensuring arrival within 15 minutes, earning it the moniker of the “15-minute city.”

This month, Dublin City Council is orchestrating a meeting with key landowners and stakeholders involved in the Ballybogan Glasnevin Industrial Estate. The gathering aims to discuss the next steps and garner collective input to ensure the success of the project.

Numerous landowners to the west of Glasnevin Cemetery have already signalled their willingness to contribute their land, generating enthusiasm among developers eager to commence construction. The housing project is poised to attract considerable attention due to its comprehensive transportation infrastructure, encompassing trains, buses, and even water transport options. Esteemed property development entities like Richard Barrett’s Bartra and the Black Lion Real Estate Fund have already secured various sites within the estate.

While the council has received prior applications for residential schemes in the area, permissions were withheld pending the rezoning of the land for residential development. Some of these applications are currently under review by An Bord Pleniela. However, the proposed development has faced opposition from local Glasnevin residents, who contend that it may “adversely affect the safety, privacy, noise quality, and sunlight of existing homes in the area.”
