Cherrywood Village Centre has been approved by Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council, with construction due to begin next year.

The development is planned to provide retail, social and leisure amenities in what is one of Dublin’s fastest growing suburbs.

The mixed-use development, designed by architects from Urban Agency, will be located on a 2.7-acre site and feature a new village green.

It will include a 2,700 sq m supermarket, eight retail units, five food and beverage units, three business units and 200 sq m of internal community space.

It will also include 148 build-to-rent one and two-bed apartments with retail and residential car parking.

Located off Gun and Drum Hill Road and near to Tully Park, it is the first of a number of planned urban villages to be delivered as part of the Cherrywood Strategic Development Zone (SDZ) Planning Scheme.

Construction is due to start next year and the village centre should be completed by late 2026.

Quintain Ireland, a residential and mixed-use developer, is in the process of delivering over 3,000 homes and 27 acres of green space in Cherrywood as part of its Cherrywood Village masterplan. 

To date, Quintain has invested €156 million in Cherrywood and a total of 136 now occupied homes have been completed, with a further 215 under construction.

“The new Cherrywood Village Centre is a much-needed development and we are delighted to have received planning permission for it,” Michael Hynes, co-managing director of Quintain Ireland.

“At Quintain Ireland, our mission is to create exceptional and affordable places to live, which are at the forefront of design, placemaking and sustainability.

“This involves the delivery of a high number of homes, but we are acutely aware that we need to build communities too.

“We strive to deliver quality amenities and quality open spaces alongside quality housing and Cherrywood Village Centre is a great example of how we achieve this.”
