Dublin City Council to redevelop more than 6,000 flats

More than 6,000 units of Dublin city’s oldest and most dilapidated flat complexes are to be redeveloped under a 15-year plan to raise social housing standards across the city. Dublin City Council plans to regenerate more than 100 flat complexes, some of which were built more than 80 years ago, to improve the living standards of existing tenants and to increase the numbers of homes on its lands. All of the 6,391 flats are in blocks more than 40 years old, and some were built in the 1930s, including St Michan’s House and Chancery House near the Four Courts, Oliver Bond House in the south inner city and Pearse House on Pearse Street.
