Inchicore Cost Rental & Social Housing

Inchicore Redevelopment

Posted July 30th, 2018

Last week I announced that a Dublin City Council-owned site at Emmet Road in Inchicore has been selected as the location for Dublin’s first major Cost Rental development.

The Chief Executive of Dublin City Council, Owen Keegan has welcomed plans for the council to lead out on the development. It is expected that the detailed proposal for the site will be brought before the Council in September for approval. The entire development will be managed as a single integrated community, by a professional estate management company, which will also be competitively procured by the Council.

Based on the most recent modelling analysis, it is estimated that the site can accommodate over 470 homes in a high quality development. While the final tenure mix will be decided by the Council and informed by the detailed site development process, it will include 140 social housing homes, with the remaining 330 homes predominantly provided under Cost Rental. While the level of social housing is fully committed, the model allows for some level of interchange between Cost Rental and private homes. As part of the broader development, a new library and other community facilities are also planned.
