Developer Michael O’Flynn has been busy. Last year his company O’Flynn Capital Partners partnered with BlackRock Real Estate to buy the 2.3-acre Dublin docklands site Point Campus, beside the Gibson Hotel, with planning permission to accommodate 935 student beds.

Last month he confirmed his Cork-based O’Flynn Group had taken advantage of the Government’s “fast-track” planning laws to seek permission for his company’s largest housebuilding plan since the economic recovery. He hopes to green-light a 31-hectare site in Glanmire, Co Cork, and build 515 houses, a creche, retail units and a community centre.

Meanwhile in Dublin’s leafy suburb of Killiney he has built the first 10 of 28 houses on the former site of Broadlands, a detached property on 2.82 acres that the company bought from Dublin fashion retailer Seán Barron, founder of the Pamela Scott fashion group.

The Cork-based housebuilders acquired the well-located site in October 2006 for €22 million. The house and gardens overlooked Killiney golf club and adjoined Cluny Park.

A2-rated houses

The company hired Cork-based Hogan Architecture to design the two- and three-storey terraced, semidetached and detached A2-rated houses. The plans included the demolition of the original house and the addition of a pedestrian path from the development to the park. Access to the estate is via Ballinclea Road.
