dlr delivers new social houses under Rebuilding Ireland Programme
Today, we delivered a further 10 homes as part of our housing delivery target of 1,563 social housing homes by 2021. The homes were designed by the Council’s Architects’ Department and built by Manley Construction on a site at Park Close, Glenageary.
The development was officially opened today by An Cathaoirleach of dlr, Councillor Ossian Smyth, and Maria Bailey, TD, Chair of the Oireachtas Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government.
The development, which has been designed for older persons, consists of ten one-bed apartments with additional visitor/carer space provided in each unit and level-access showers. The construction of the new homes was overseen by A2 Architects in association with Delap and Waller M&E, Punch Engineers and Nolan Construction QS, and the homes are designed and built to a high specification, resulting in comfortable, energy efficient and high quality dwellings.
The new development is located in an established residential area within easy walking distance of shops, services and bus routes, and the purpose-built dlr Community and Senior Citizens’ extension to the existing youth centre, which is currently under construction, is adjacent to the development.
The provision of social and affordable housing under Rebuilding Ireland is our main priority and we are delighted to have formally taken possession of these houses today and look forward to seeing people settle into their new homes.
Every effort was made to work with the local neighbours to the site and the wider community to ensure the development would fit in to the environment and deliver comfortable, energy efficient homes for the people who will live in them.
