Set up last year, it was founded by Scottish accountant Alan McIntosh and Michael Stanley, the company’s chief executive and formerly chief executive of Stanley Holdings. He also co-founded Coastland Partnership, focusing on development in Dublin and London.
Cairn Homes is set to build over 1,000 homes in Dublin including Marianella an eight-acre site in Rathgar, formerly the headquarters of the Redemptorist religious order, that the firm paid close to €43 million for just after it floated.
Through architects O’Mahony Pike it has planning for 211 apartments and houses, with a smaller number of family homes.
Construction is scheduled to begin early next year.
Last August the firm paid just over €5 million for a site at Ard na Glaise in Stillorgan.
