Cairn secure planning for a new 607-unit phase of Seven Mills, in Clonburris

South Dublin County Council have granted Cairn planning permission for the third phase of the Seven Mills residential development, located in the Clonburris area of Dublin 22. This phase includes the construction of 607 apartments, a core urban area encompassing retail spaces, a creche, an office building, and an urban square.

This latest approval increases Cairn’s total permitted units at Seven Mills to over 1,000 in the past year. The company is set to develop 5,500 new homes for over 15,000 residents at Seven Mills over the coming years.

Nestled along the Grand Canal, between Lucan and Clondalkin, and only 13km from Dublin’s city centre, Seven Mills is strategically designed for ease of access and integration with the city. When complete, a range of commercial and business hubs will benefit its residents.

The development has been thoughtfully planned and designed with pedestrian-friendly areas, complemented by two train stations and a network of cycleways and walkways. This infrastructure promotes sustainable transportation methods, and the addition of car and bike-sharing facilities further supports resident mobility within the community.

Construction of the first phase at Seven Mills began in January 2023. This phase, comprising 569 new family homes with 3 and 4-bedroom options, is nearing completion. The first residents moved in at the end of 2023. 

3DDB continues to produce a wide range of 3D marketing and 3D planning of various stages of the Seven Mills development. For the recently approved phase, our expert team created detailed computer-generated images and accurate verified view montages.

“This development represents a significant step forward for the local area, promising to create a dynamic new community. Being involved in a project of such importance is incredibly rewarding, as it challenges and inspires our team to continuously evolve and deliver our best work – a goal we’re confident we have achieved once again. We look forward to continuing our work on the remaining phases of this project, and we are sure that all of them will be successful,” adds Nicholas Polley, Managing Director at 3D Design Bureau
