Cork-based builder and developer Michael O'Flynn has submitted proposals to the city council for a huge mixed-use project in west Dublin designed to provide 1,137 new homes and a 148-bedroom, 15-storey hotel.

The scheme, known as ‘Southwest Gate Dublin 12’, has a price tag of €625 million and will occupy a seven-hectare site.

The development is made up of 299 build-to-rent units, 724 build-to-sell units, and 114 social-and-affordable units, which will require a total of 13 blocks up to 10 storeys in height.

The proposals also include 5,000 square metres of office space, 10 retail units, a cultural hub and a primary healthcare centre.

Much of the scheme will be located on the former Nissan site on the Naas Road and, if approved, would provide more than 650 jobs, according to the developer.
