Dublin City Council (DCC) has advanced the construction of 200 homes in the city.
At a recent meeting, Councillors approved the developments, which included granting part 8 planning permission for the construction of 46 one-bedroom apartments for older people.
The development, located on the site of the former St Finbar’s Court complex in Cabra, Dublin 7, is also due to include a community centre, and will now go out for tender.
Part 8 planning permission was also granted for the construction of 12 new apartments at a site in Coolock, which will be designated as permanent social housing, in addition to three new houses on Sackville Avenue, which will be offered to families currently on the council's social housing waiting list.
The council also decided to dispose of a site owned at Coruba House in Crumlin which will be taken over by Circle Voluntary Housing Association who have proposed a partnership with Seabren, who are developing a private site adjacent to Coruba House.
The council said the combined proposal will allow for the development of 152 homes, half of which would be constructed under the Cost Rental Scheme and the remainder will be built for social housing. The planning permission for this development is currently being considered by An Bord Pleanála.
