When work, over the next decade, is finished, Cherrywood will be home to around 30,000 people.
It will have 8,000 homes, made up of houses, and 1,300 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments.
A centre that will include shops, offices, a cinema, library and other services.
A Luas stop, bus stops and 5.4 km of roads.
A park at Tully, next to the town centre, which at 22 acres will be the size of St Stephen’s Green in Dublin.
Two other parks, one of 13 acres at the northwest end and Ticknick, the biggest of the three, whose 47 acres will include playing fields and a pavillion.
The total cost will be €2 billion. The first stage, building roads and putting in utilities such as electricity, gas and water, will cost €160 million.
