Property firm Quintain Ireland has received planning permission to build 245 new homes at Tandy's Lane in Lucan in Dublin. 

The site has a gross development value of about €82m and construction will begin at the end of the year, with the first homes coming to market in the middle of 2021.

The development will include 213 houses, 16 duplexes and 15 apartments. 

Quintain said the range of unit types provided will allow for "lifetime living" whereby people can trade up or down within the scheme should the need arise. This lends itself to the creation of a diverse community, it added.

Tandy's Lane Village is close to Quintain's Somerton development where the first phase is complete. 

Quintain is developing 220 acres in the Adamstown/Lucan area, where it plans to develop over 4,000 new homes and 600,000 square feet of commercial space. 

Its broader land portfolio covers 460 acres of prime assets in Ireland at Adamstown, Clonburris, Portmarnock, and Cherrywood, and when developed will make Quintain the third largest residential developer in the country

Michael Hynes, Joint Managing Partner of Quintain Ireland, said the 245 new homes will form part of a growing community with access to green space and school facilities, and the wider amenities of Lucan on the doorstep with easy access to Dublin city centre.

"These homes will be completed to the high building standards and leading environmental specifications that Quintain guarantees to its buyers. They represent the latest stage in Quintain's plans to deliver 9,000 homes across four sites in the Greater Dublin area," Mr Hynes added.
