South Dublin’s Upper Kilmacud Road has seen a flurry of activity in recent times, with major new developments proposed and under construction.

Castleknock developer Larry Keegan is developing a new scheme called Stillorgan Gate beside St Benildus College, while New Generation Homes has been refused planning permission for 130 apartments at the nearby former Green Acres Convent.

Davy is the latest developer on the scene, having purchased Kemnay, a modest single-storey residence on 0.74 acres adjacent to Keegan’s scheme. It now seeks planning permission for a residential development.

The house appeared in the property price register as having sold for just €700,000 in 2014, after it was offered for sale through Ganly Walters. Davy’s scheme will effectively be an extension of Stillorgan Gate, which is already under construction, and both parties used Terenure-based PCOT Architects to design their properties.

Davy plans to build a terrace of three four-bedroom houses and eight three- bedroom duplex apartments over eight two-bedroom apartments split between two terraces.

Keegan originally faced opposition and planning appeals from residents of neighbouring Hazelbrook apartments. As Davy’s proposed properties are even closer, this plan may also be delayed by similar action.
