The average indicative cost of the apartments will be €327,888, and they form part of two fast-track housing applications for the Dundrum area of Dublin by Marlet subsidiary Crekav Trading GP.

In documents lodged with An Bord Pleanála, Crekav Trading GP is proposing to sell 25 apartments from its planned 253 apartments at Greenacres, Longacre and Drumahill House, Upper Kilmacud Road, Dundrum, to Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council for €8.346 million.

In the second proposal, Crekav is proposing to sell 11 apartments from its 116-apartment plan for Walled Garden, Gort Mhuire, Dundrum for €3.458 million to Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council. This offer comprises seven one-bed apartments ranging in cost from €241,446 to €262,441, while the four two-bed apartments range from €414,657 to €430,404.
