Work has commenced on three significant infrastructure projects at the Adamstown Strategic Development Zone (SDZ) in Dublin.

Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage, Darragh O’Brien TD joined the Mayor of South Dublin County, Cllr Ed O’Brien, and South Dublin County Council Chief Executive Daniel McLoughlin on 22 September, as work commenced on three significant infrastructure projects at the Adamstown Strategic Development Zone (SDZ) in Dublin.

The ambitious large-scale delivery of essential infrastructure in Adamstown consists of the construction of three separate projects: Airlie Park, Tandy’s Lane Park and the Celbridge Link Road. A combined €15 million was allocated for the three projects by the then Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government through the Local Infrastructure Housing Activation Funds (LIHAF) with South Dublin County Council providing the extra €5 million in funding.

Coady Architects working alongside Dermot Foley Landscape Architects as lead consultants were appointed by SDCC to design and deliver a pavilion for the proposed Airlie Park within the Adamstown SDZ.

The pavilion is located at the intersection of the main pedestrian routes, providing a focal point to the park. The facility accommodates café, changing and back of house facilities associated with the sports function of the park.

LIHAF is a key element of the Government’s drive to build more homes . The objective of the fund is to provide public off-site infrastructure to relieve critical infrastructure blockages. This enables the accelerated delivery of housing on key development sites in Dublin and urban areas of high demand for housing nationally. South Dublin County Council’s successful LIHAF funding bid for financial support was linked to the delivery of 2,000 new homes within the Adamstown SDZ. The delivery of these homes is currently underway with over 1,500 homes already completed or contracted and the remaining 500 homes under construction. Within the large-scale delivery of homes, there are 300 homes at or below a cost of €300,000 and a further 500 at or below €320,000. It is expected that work on all three projects will be completed in 2022.
