The Land Development Agency (LDA) has announced the launch of 184 cost rental apartments in Cookstown in Tallaght, Co Dublin, writes Rachel Cunningham.

An online application portal for the new homes opened on June 20 and will remain open for a week.

The available homes are located at Cookstown Gateway and include a mix of studios, one-bed and two-bed apartments.

The development overlooks Cookstown Luas Stop on the Red Luas Line and is within walking distance of Tallaght University Hospital and The Square Shopping Centre.

A new grocery retailer is due to open in the complex shortly, which is also close to a host of local amenities, shops and services.

The rents are set at €1,000 for a studio apartment and €1,225 for a one-bed, while rents for a two-bed apartment start at €1,425.

Created under the Affordable Housing Act 2021, cost rental offers a long-term secure rental option at below comparable market rates for would-be tenants who do not qualify for social housing but who cannot access the private market without support.

Applicants for cost rental homes must have a net household income of below €66,000 in Dublin and €59,000 outside Dublin.

“The LDA is delighted to bring much needed cost rental homes onto the market in Dublin,” said John Coleman, Chief Executive Officer of the LDA.

“These are high quality, A-rated apartments in a great location at below market rents with security of tenure.  

“It’s a really excellent opportunity for people looking to live in a well-connected and established community.

“I would strongly urge potential applicants to familiarise themselves with the application process and the qualifying criteria to give themselves the best chance of securing one of these great homes.”
