Planning permission secured for 1,047 homes on O’Devaney Gardens site

The project was expected to deliver around 800 units but An Bord Pleanála has now given Bartra, the developer, the all-clear to build more than 1,000 homes

O’Devaney Gardens was a social housing development which contained 278 flats. Dublin City Council started to move tenants out of the complex in the mid-2000s to prepare it for demolition and redevelopment. Picture: Mark Stedman/
