Maplewood and Grandbrind to commence construction on ‘first of its kind’ joint venture development in south Dublin
Maplewood Residential and Grandbrind Ltd are about to commence construction on a 1,034-home development at Kilcarbery in Clondalkin, Dublin, the first public-private housing project of its kind to get underway in the country. Up to 200 construction jobs will be created through this innovative project, with the phased return of residential construction starting from 12 April.
Quintain has received planning permission to construct 235 new homes at Aderrig in Adamstown, West Dublin. The 17-acre site will include 159 houses and 76 apartments set in communal green open spaces, as well as being adjacent to Airlie Park and Tandy’s Lane Park.
James Benson, Director, Development, Planning and Housing, CIF, writes that the country needs 36,000 homes each year for the next two decades to keep up with population growth, but current supply isn’t matching either the demand or realisable output.
A new analysis of the home building market carried out by EY-DKM Economic Advisory Services on behalf of the Irish Home Builders Association (IHBA) estimates that up to 36,000 new homes per annum will be needed to meet demand over the next two decades.
In November 2020, HBFI launched two new products to further its presence throughout the housebuilding finance market. These products closely support the market requirements and have been developed following extensive engagement with market participants. The two new products are:
• COSME Product
• Social Housing Product.
