Cherrywood Village is located on a 65-acre site within the Cherrywood Strategic Development Zone (SDZ) and will comprise a mix of new houses, duplexes and apartments with two public parks, 27 acres of green space, and over 4,300m² of retail and civic amenities in the village centre. 

The 136 homes to receive planning permission comprise of 80 two, three and four bedroomed houses, and 56 duplexes, with construction due to start as soon as the Covid-19 related lockdown on the sector is lifted.

Joint Managing Partner of Quintain Ireland, Michael Hynes stated on Monday: "This is the first step in a development that will provide much needed new housing supply in Dún Laoghaire–Rathdown that is well-connected to existing infrastructure and amenities. 

He stated: "Our plans for Cherrywood Village will cater to a range of different housing needs with a particular focus on young families and first-time buyers."

Concerning the overall masterplan, the Laughanstown Luas Station is located at the heart of the project.

Cherrywood Village is situated close to major employers like Vodafone and Microsoft in Sandyford, and Dell and Elavon in Cherrywood Science and Technology Park. 

Cherrywood Village represents around half of Quintain's 118-acre land holding in the area that was acquired from Hines and King Street Capital.

In addition to its land holdings at Cherrywood, Quintain will be responsible for the residential development of a further 340 acres of prime assets in Ireland at Adamstown, Clonburris, and Portmarnock. 

Overall Quintain plans to develop 600,000 sq. ft. of commercial space and more than 9,000 new homes.
